Ingredients

Vanilla Chia Pudding:

  • 1 cup of plain non-dairy yogurt like coconut or soy
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk or any plant milk
  • 4-5 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • [Optional] Small squeeze of maple syrup

Chocolate Chia Pudding

  • 1 cup of plain non-dairy yogurt like coconut or soy
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk or any plant milk
  • 4-5 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • [Optional] Small squeeze of maple syrup
  • 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder

Raspberry Chia Jam:

  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds

Instructions

Chia Puddings:

  • Steps for the vanilla chia pudding and chocolate one are the same. Mix all ingredients in a large container – the consistency will be very thin at this stage
  • Cover and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator (The chia seeds expand in liquid. The longer you let them sit the more thick your pudding will be). In the morning your pudding will be ready for layering

Raspberry Chia Jam:

  • Mash the raspberries in a container until the mixture starts to resemble a jam
  • Mix in the lemon juice and chia seeds
  • Cover and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight so the chia seeds can expand and make the jam thick

Assembling a Chia Pudding Jar:

  • The next day, after all your chia creations have become thick and pudding-like, you can get out your serving jars (I like using mini mason jars, as they are so cute!) and layer spoonfuls of different items in the jars until you fill them to the top. One jar I alternated layering fresh mango and the vanilla chia pudding. The second jar I alternated layering both chia flavors, and fresh berries. The final jar I alternated using chocolate chia pudding, the raspberry chia jam, and fresh berries.
  • Get creative with it! Layering your jars and using various fruits will make each jar unique and fun!

Notes

* Note: Preparing chia pudding is incredibly easy. So even though the "cook time" of this recipe is 24 hours, that is simply because your pudding need to rest overnight in the fridge. You can easily throw these together in under 10 minutes and the next day have lots of chia pudding to enjoy!
