Coconut Chia Pudding - Conscious Cooking

Coconut Chia Pudding

If you want a rich, creamy and satisfying chia pudding that your kids will love, give a try to this recipe. It’s basically made with chia seeds, maple syrup and full fat coconut milk – super easy to make. You can make overnight or the morning itself if you can wait about 30 minutes before eating it.

I usually make my chia pudding with my homemade nondairy milk and add a bunch of superfoods into it such as nuts and seeds, goji berries, raw cacao nibs, coconut flakes and berries, but I made this one more as a snack, although for small children it makes an ideal breakfast. It was more of a snack for me because I did dental work and couldn’t chew at the end of my cleanse when I was going to start reintroducing solid foods so it was a good transition, haha!

Chia pudding are soft, creamy and easy to eat. Babies can eat them too. It’s so good and good for you. Chia seeds are actually a complete source of protein and a great source of fibre and healthy fats, as well as alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. It’s a very healthy food to add in your and your children’s diet. It’s allergen-free and gluten-free, and considered to be a superfood.


You can garnish your pudding with you any toppings you like. You can, of course, eating it as is, as it’s absolutely delicious (that’s actually what I did this time as I couldn’t chew), but feel free to add any toppings, such as:

  • berries
  • fresh seasonal fruits
  • nuts and seeds, preferably soaked
  • goji berries
  • raw cacao nibs
  • bee pollen
  • coconut flakes

So here’s the recipe for this bowl of yumminess. Make sure you make try your children as I’m sure they’ll enjoy this one. This breakfast, snack or healthy dessert is vegan and gluten-free, and serves 4.
