Recipe Notes

  • This pudding can be prepared the night before or 20-30 minutes before consuming. Chia thickens as it sits, so you may need to adjust the milk to chia ratio to your preference.
  • Play around with different flavour combinations. For instance, almond milk can be used in place of coconut. You can also change up the fruit and jam to blueberry, blackberry, strawberry and more. Sugar-free is an option too if you're following the Keto diet.
  • To toast coconut, place in preheated 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes, stirring a few times. Allow to cool.
  • Top the chia pudding with fresh fruit and coconut right before serving for best results.
  • Store in the refrigerator covered for up to 2 days (without toppings).
