Fall snuck up on us real quick this year, but I have to admit it didn’t take long for me to be ready for all the cozy things. This chai spiced Paleo chia seed pudding is one of my new favorite meal prep recipes. It has the perfect bit of spice that pairs so well with all the fall fruits for a savory sweet combo. Plus, who doesn’t love recipes that involve toppings – it’s the best part!
Paleo Chia Seed Pudding
You can always make chia seed pudding with just chia seeds and coconut milk or the nut milk of your choice, but I have been loving adding hemp seeds into the mix for a little extra texture. It gives the chia pudding more of an oatmeal like texture, which I really love! It also adds a little extra protein as well.
We are pretty big fans of meal planning and prep and this chai spiced Paleo chia seed pudding is the perfect candidate for a meal prep recipe! It’s quick and easy to throw together in a mason jar and then re-heats easily when you are ready to enjoy it. It saves you time in the morning to have breakfast already made or it can also be made in advance to have a healthy snack on hand.
Toppings For Days
You can choose your favorite toppings for this Paleo chia seed pudding. My favorites to compliment the chai spices in the pudding are slices of bananas and pears, blueberries or other berries, chopped nuts or grain-free granola, more hemp seeds, nut butter and a little drizzle of raw honey is pretty amazing.

- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 2 tbsp hempseed
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk (or sub nut milk of choice)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp all spice
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- Pinch of sea salt
- Chopped nuts or seeds (we love pecans and walnuts)

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients except toppings with a whisk. Let everything settle, mix again and again until the chia seeds start to expand. You can eat right away or let it firm up a bit in the fridge.
When you're ready to eat, layer on all the toppings and enjoy! I like to heat mine up a little before adding all the toppings for an overnight oats kind of feel!
