  • 1 cup cashew milk, almond milk, or coconut milk
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, more to taste
  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds
  • Optional Toppings
  • Maple syrup
  • Sliced bananas
  • Shredded coconut
  • Shredded orange zest
  • Toasted chopped nuts


  1. In a small jar or bowl, combine the milk, orange zest, and vanilla extract. Taste, and if you’d like a more pronounced vanilla flavor, add another ? teaspoon vanilla extract. Be sure to measure out the extra vanilla extract rather than just pouring more in—it’s easy to go overboard.
  2. Whisk in the chia seeds. Let the mixture rest for about 15 minutes, then whisk the mixture again to break up any clumps. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight), until the chia seeds have absorbed enough moisture to achieve a pudding-like state. If you think of it, give it a stir sometime along the way to break up any clumps of chia.
  3. Before serving, stir once again to break up any clumps of chia seeds. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup on top and any additional toppings you might like. This pudding will keep well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 5 days.
