The Breakfast Club: Chia Pots

These babies are by my darling friend  Lynne Whelehan from “Make & Bake From Scratch”.

Chia Pots are a great way to put a spring in your step in the morning time. They are packed with protein, fibre and omega 3 fatty acids. By adding a tablespoon of chia seeds you can increase your protein intake on a daily basis. Chia seeds contain soluble and insoluble fiber which is great for digestion and regularity. Chia pots have a rice pudding consistency. You will need to leave them in fridge overnight or at least 6 hours. You can add your toppings of your choice when they have set.


4 tablespoons Chia Seeds (2 tbsp. in each pot)

¼ cup Coconut Water, in each pot

¼ cup Homemade Almond Milk or Milk of choice (store-bought will work), in each pot

1 teaspoon Vanilla Powder (1/2 teaspoon in each pot)

2 teaspoons Rice Syrup, 1 teaspoon in each pot


Add all the ingredients to your pots and stir the mixture with a small spoon until combined. Pop in the fridge overnight.

Next morning give it a little stir before devouring, sprinkle with your favourite toppings.

  1. One last crazy question- how small are them pots and do you put the tops on when you put them in the fridge over night or leave them uncovered?

  2. Yum made this last night and took it to lectures this morning. Put coconut milk and honey instead and it was perfect!! Definitely new breakfast staple!! Thanks madeline :)

  3. Jessica and I also have these little darlings microwaved in the morning with some extra almond milk – similar to porridge – just add your chosen fruit and gets me through a whole morning without the hunger pains!!

  4. Hi Madeleine,
    Could you please out a link to where you buy chai seeds online? Seem to have found so many different ones. Thanks!

  5. could you give the cup measurements in grams/ounces/ml? I get confused as a cup of flour is not the same measure of a cup of milk? thank you

  6. Love love love this recipe. I know chia seeds are great for digestion but they are also quite high in fat, would it be too much to eat this for breakfast aswell as an afternoon snack?

  7. I have tried to make these pots, could you tell me why mine doesn’t look like the picture.

    My Chia seeds hardly swell and look brown!!

    Do I need to add more liquid?

    Tatses great still..
