Flaxseed pudding is an easy-to-prepare healthy breakfast option for those busy mornings when you’re trying to get yourself fed and out the door. It’s great for meal prep and easy to customize!


  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseeds (aka flax meal)
  • 1 cup milk (any dairy or non-dairy milk!)
  • Sweetener of choice, 1-2 tablespoons
    • (maple syrup, honey, mashed banana, applesauce, sugar, etc)
  • pinch of salt


  1. Combine the ground flaxseeds and milk in a bowl.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and your sweetener of choice and stir to combine. Let sit for 3-5 minutes then stir once more to be sure all the seeds are incorporated with the milk and there aren’t any dry patches.
  3. Cover and store in the fridge to thicken for at least 30-60 minutes or preferably overnight.
  4. Top with all your favorites and enjoy!


Top this with yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, and chopped nuts for winning health & flavor combinations! I love vegan vanilla yogurt with chopped strawberries, bananas, and hazelnuts! Or blueberry + chocolate chip for a classic combo or mango & pineapple with macadamia nuts for a tropical summer twist!

I prefer to use coconut milk in this recipe as it has a high-fat content and results in an ultra-creamy pudding!

If you only have whole flaxseeds, you can grind them up in your blender. You’ll probably need to add at least 1 cup of flaxseeds for the blender blade to catch and grind them up.  Alternatively, you could blend whole flaxseeds + all other ingredients in a blender for 30-60 seconds, then portion and refrigerate until set.

You can adjust the final texture of this recipe by altering the amount of liquid. Want this in a thinner, more porridge-like consistency or ultra thick and hearty? You can make that happen. Add more liquid for a thinner consistency or less to thicken things up! 

For meal prep, you can also portion this out into individual containers before you let it set.
