Chia seed pudding is one of the first recipes I posted on this blog. H and I both love it, and I love the convenience of it when served for breakfast. I always make it the night before and it is ready to go in the morning. It is so easy to make and requires no cooking.
I started giving my little guy chia seed pudding when he was about 6 months old. I originally discovered the recipe on ‘A Healthy Mum‘ – a food blog with healthy recipes and tips, and I have been making it ever since.
I have used coconut milk in this version and combined it with berries for a healthy breakfast, snack or dessert. You can find the original recipe here.
Coconut Chia Seed Pudding
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 4 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
- 1 cup berries (fresh or frozen); mashed with a fork
- Extra berries to serve
- Optional* a tablespoon of maple syrup to sweeten
- Add the milk to a mason jar or a container with a lid. Add the chia seeds and vanilla extract, secure the lid and shake straight away so the chia seeds don't clump together. Add the mashed berries and shake again.
- Give it a few more shakes over the next 15 minutes, so the mixture thickens evenly. Leave in the fridge for a few hours or make the night before.
- Serve with extra berries
Sweeten with maple syrup or honey from 12 months old

This looks so yummy. I tried chia pudding for the first time recently and it was delicious! Now I need to make it at home, and this looks like the perfect recipe to start with.
It is so easy to make at home that you will never buy it again. Thanks for stopping by Debi xx
I have seen this recipe floating around the web but have never tried it. I’m totally convinced now, your photos are gorgeous.
Yes this one has been around for some time but it is always good so I just had to share. Let me know what you think. xx

Looks like H is being fed nutritious healthy food from a super young age! YUM!
He is my little gourmand – he would rather a bowl of peas or fruit over lollies and chocolate – winning!!
