Chia pudding is a breakfast favourite in my house! I make mine with whole chia seeds, which give it a characteristic grainy texture, but you can use ground seeds if you prefer your keto pudding smooth. I love the combination of chocolate & orange so much that I used this popular combo in two recipes in my upcoming cookbook. When the book is released in January, you will find chocolate & orange keto granola and cookies!
As you may have noticed, this meal is relatively high in total carbs and low in net carbs. If you are not sure which of these you should count, have a look at my post here: Total Carbs or Net Carbs: What Really Counts?

The main reason I use two sweeteners in most of my recipes is that a combination of more sweeteners mask the aftertaste / bitterness of some of them.
- Mix the chia seeds, coconut milk, water and Erythritol. If you prefer a smoother texture, use ground chia seeds or place the mixture into a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Add fresh orange zest (or orange extract) ...
