Are Chia Seeds Keto Friendly?

Yes! They are a really great keto and low carb staple. At first glance, people see that chia seeds contain about 12 carbs per serving (2 tablespoons) and assume they aren’t keto friendly. Look a little further down the nutrition facts and see that 11 of those carbs are fiber.

There is only one net carb per serving, making them a great option!

Chia seeds are a nutrition powerhouse because they’re fiber rich and loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants.

The high fiber in chia seeds is really great when you’re on a low carb diet because often you can become fiber deficient.

How to Make Chia Pudding

Chia pudding seems complex, but it’s really pretty easy. And it’s a really great way to meal prep, too! Here are the simple steps I follow.

  1. Add everything except the chia seeds and toppings to a mason jar. Cover and shake.
  2. Add chia seeds, cover and shake again.
  3. Let sit for several minutes as the chia seeds begin to absorb the liquid.
  4. Shake again, let sit, shake again, let sit.
  5. Give it one final shake and transfer to the fridge to set.
  6. It will take about 30 minutes for the chia seeds to fully absorb the liquid. And even better if you have time to let the pudding sit overnight.
  7. When you’re ready to eat, add your favorite toppings!

Troubleshooting Chia Pudding Texture Issues

Here are tips for what to do when your chia pudding is too thick or too runny.

Too Thick

  • Stir in more almond milk, starting with a couple tablespoons until it reaches your desired consistency

Too Runny

  • Add more chia seeds and let them absorb the excess liquid, starting with just a teaspoon until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Just note that you’ll need to give the chia seeds time to absorb the liquid and set.

There are some factors that can affect the consistency of your chia pudding – like how fresh your seeds are. If they’re old or stale, they won’t absorb as much liquid. Or maybe you live at a higher altitude or have low or high humidity. Just use the tips above to correct.

Low Carb Topping Ideas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk, or sub coconut or other nut milk
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, optional (if worried about net carbs omit)
  • 2 tsp cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon, optional

Instructions
 

  • Combine everything, except for the chia seeds and toppings, in a mason jar with a whisk.
  • Add in the chia seeds, cover the jar and give it a good shake. Let it settle and sit for a few minutes and then shake it again. Continue this pattern of shaking and waiting until the chia seeds start to absorb the liquid and expand. They will look evenly dispersed through the liquid when it's ready to set in the fridge.

  • When you're ready to eat, layer on all the toppings and enjoy!
