This paleo coconut chia pudding gets its creaminess from chia seeds. These magic little seeds gel when they absorb liquid, so they transform this pudding mixture from a liquid to a creamy pudding. They’re a lovely mix of plant-based protein and fats, fiber, and vitamins & minerals
ratio of chia seeds to water
This recipe will make three servings of chia seed pudding. I use four tablespoons of chia seeds and one cup of liquid.
I like to use two different kinds of liquid. You will need a half cup of coconut milk and half a cup of almond milk. I recommend you use full fat coconut milk which comes in a can rather than the refrigerated kind you find in a box. As a result of the extra fat in canned coconut milk, the pudding will have a very creamy consistency.
When it’s finished, your pudding shouldn’t be liquidy at all. It should be thick and creamy. If it needs to be thicker, you can add more chia seeds.

Additional toppings (optional)
- Place chia seeds, non-dairy milk, sea salt, collagen (if using) and vanilla (if using) in a bowl. Combine with a whisk, stirring continuously until chia seeds begin to expand and the texture thickens. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan or skillet over medium heat add berries. Cook, stirring often until the berries break down and get saucy. They don't have to be fully broken down if you prefer them to have a little more texture.
- Separate the berry mixture into the bottom of a smaller jar, layer chia pudding on top (or do the reverse with chia pudding on the bottom and berries on top) and add any additional optional toppings you'd like. Cover and store in the fridge. You can enjoy cold or heat up for about 30 seconds before eating. Enjoy!

This chia seed pudding can be eaten directly out of the jar - this is a fun treat for kids! We just add berries into the jar in the morning.
The seeds need a few hours to absorb the liquid and "gel" up. This is best made the night before, then served chilled the next morning!
Sometimes the seeds can float to the top, before they've had chance to "gel up." I recommend poking your head in the fridge before bed, giving the jar a little shake to mix the seeds in, and sticking it back in for the rest of the night!
