This vegan banana Pudding from scratch is made with almond milk, bananas, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and chia seeds.
This pudding is a no bake no cook recipe. Adding chia seeds into the banana mixture when soak will plump up, causing the consistency to be thick, creating a delicious and easy pudding. Chia seeds have a neutral flavor so you can make pudding from many different blended fruits. You can always add cocoa powder, berries or substitute with oat milk. Since this requires 8 minutes of soaking, it is great to make this recipe at night, let it soak overnight, and then eat for breakfast.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Almond milk Bananas

- Milk: If you want this recipe to be vegan, make it with almond or oat milk. If not, you can use regular milk.
- Chia seeds: Chia seeds are essential for this recipe. It is what gives the pudding the consistency it needs.
- Bananas: You can use any fruit, but bananas worked like a charm. You can never have too many chia pudding recipes!
- Maple syrup: If you would like for this to be vegan, use maple syrup. If not, feel free to use honey.
- Cinnamon: If you don’t have cinnamon, nutmeg also gives it a nice rounding taste.
- Vanilla: I used vanilla extract for this recipe – if you want to get crazy you can use almond extract, bourbon, or instant coffee!

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
