Keto Raspberry Chia Pudding (low-carb, keto, paleo, vegan, refined sugar-free)
Raspberry Chia pudding is perfect for the keto diet. It’s high in healthy fats and if you want to boost the protein intake, you can add your favorite whey powder.
- 1 cup coconut milk (250 ml/ 8.5 fl oz)
- ½ cup water (140 ml/ 5 fl oz)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (150 g/ 5 oz)
- ½ cup chia seeds (85 g/ 3 oz)
- Protein (whey) powder 0g-3g max carbs
- Fresh raspberries
To make it, mix together the raspberries, almond milk, water except for the chia seeds. Blend well together until you get a very smooth mixture. You may also blend the chia seeds, but ground chia seeds will add a bitter flavor to the pudding.
When the mixture is ready, put the half cup of chia seeds into a jar, then pour the raspberry mixture over and close the lid. Shake well and let it sit for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
The chia seeds will absorb up to 12 times their weight in moisture and plump up a texture that resembles pudding.
Top with additional raspberries (if desired) and serve cold.
