Cooking Time



For the Chia Pudding:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds or 3 tablespoons
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Toppings:

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios


  1. Whisk together all ingredients for the chia pudding in a bowl.
  2. Split the vanilla bean down its length using a knife. Scrape out the seeds and add to the pudding.
  3. Whisk for a couple of minutes until the chia seeds start to form a gel like consistency. The more you whisk the more your seed will get evenly spread out and you'll avoid getting lumps in your pudding.
  4. When you see that the pudding starts to thicken and the seeds are evenly spread out, move the bowl to the fridge to set for about 30 minutes.
  5. Cut out wedges from the grapefruit.
  6. Chop some pistachios and serve on top of your chia puddings.
