When I’m in need of a boost, I reach for this sugar-free, vegan peach chia pudding. Plant-based never tasted so good, and this yummy dessert is keto friendly too!
Lately, I’ve been trying to get in more fresh fruits and limiting my dairy. My go-to desserts this summer are chia pudding cups and no-bake keto cookies.
Are chia seeds keto friendly?
Chia seeds are a fantastic addition to a Keto diet! They’re low in carbohydrates but high in fiber, to keep you full.
You’ll get 12 grams of carbohydrates and 10 grams of fiber in one ounce (roughly a tbsp.).
And, since we don’t digest the fiber in chia seeds, you end up with net carbs at 2.
Is Chia gluten-free?
Chia is gluten-free by nature and may be used with a variety of ingredients to aid gluten-intolerant persons. And, the processed form of chia may occasionally be substituted for flour, making it an excellent option for a low-glycemic diet.
Chia is also high in antioxidants.
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Chia seeds : 6 Tablespoons
- Peaches: 1 cup
- Coconut milk : 2 cup
- Stevia : 2 Tablespoon
How to make chia pudding
I was super intimidated by chia at first, but its definitely the EASIEST low carb dessert.
- in a jar, combine chia and coconut milk and wait for 2+ hours (or overnight)
- blend peach curd + sweetener
- top chia mixture with peach curd and refrigerate for 30 minutes
Storing leftover chia pudding
The Peach chia pudding can be stored separately for a few days.
- allow chia-milk to settle for 2-3 minutes, then mix well until you see no clumping before refrigerating
- Shake the jar up a few times to ensure the chia seeds don’t sink all to the bottom
- Cover the jar during refrigeration to prevent mixture from drying out
Peach Chia Pudding
- food processor or blender
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup peaches sliced (fresh or thawed)
- 2 cup coconut milk *or other milk of your choice
- 2 tbsp Swerve *or stevia
- Pour the Chia and the coconut milk into a jar and mix well. Let settle for 2-3 minutes, then mix well until you see no clumping.
- Shake the jar up a few times to ensure the chia seeds don't sink all to the bottom. Cover the jar and store it in the fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours.
- Prepare the peach curd by peeling off the skin of the peaches and removing the seed. Place the peaches into a blender or food processor, add the stevia, and blend until very smooth.
- Take the chia pudding and pour it into three glasses or which types of glass you like to display. Add at the top of your chia pudding the peach puree and refrigerate for an additional 30 minutes.
