Chia seed pudding is my absolute favorite snack right now. The flavor is so addictive I would probably be wearing a mumu if it weren’t so light and healthy. I love all the variations all over the food blogs right now but this version is what I’m keeping in the fridge these days.
Blueberry, almonds and chia seeds are so good for you it’s easy to justify half a cup of this every day after work.
Be warned – this pudding has a texture similar to passion fruit or lychee. If you’re like Brad and gag at the thought of tapioca, you won’t like this. All the more for me.
I also love this with mango, pineapple and coconut almond milk. Let me know your favorite fruit!
- 2 c unsweetend almond milk
- 2 tbs chia seeds
- 3/4 c blueberries
- 2 tbs sliced almonds
- Your preferred sweetener, to taste
Combine the almond coconut milk and chia seeds. Let sit overnight so the chia seeds can get all jelly. Stir in fruit and enjoy!

Yes, unfortunately my mouth and the texture of this pudding have a problem. But Maggie loves it!
Almond milk with chia seeds is a fantastic idea! When i tried soaking the chia seeds in the almond milk overnight, the consistency was still quite liquidy. Any ideas how to make it thicker?
Maggie Jones says
Hi Sophie! A higher chia seed to liquid ratio will make it thicker. Next time, just add another scoop or two of seeds until you find the texture you love.
Good heavens, thanks very much for posting this! It is going to be so helpful when I research Chia Seeds at the market! Crazy!
This recipe would probably be wonderful with any fruit…yum!
