How To Make This Easy Coconut Milk Chia Pudding
This chia breakfast pudding recipe will be done and over before you even realize it!
Grab a medium bowl and mix together the Chia seeds, vanilla, milk, stevia, and Swerve sweetener.
Once mixed, put in the fridge to start it thickening into pudding.
Next, take and clean the strawberries, removing the stems. Slice them and put them into a small bowl.
Grab the raspberries and clean them then lay them on paper towels so they can dry out.
Take your chia pudding from the fridge and put a big spoonful of it into the bottom of your chosen container. I like to use these 4-oz jars for make ahead chia breakfast pudding, or these 6 oz mason jars (they’re so cute!).
Then take some of your sliced strawberries and put them on top of the pudding. Lay them so that they’re against the side of the glass and then fill the rest up with more chia pudding. Once full, take and place raspberries and strawberries on top.
Cover and put in the fridge until ready to enjoy.
You can keep this pudding in the fridge for up to 5 days, which is one of the reasons I love it!
Tips for Making This Mixed Berry Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding
Even though this recipe is simple, there are a few tips to keep in mind.
Is Chia Pudding good for weight loss?
Chia pudding alone won’t help you lose weight but it does have a lot of fiber in it which in turn can help you feel full and stop with the want and need for snacking.
Can frozen fruit be used instead of fresh fruit?
For this breakfast recipe to really stand out, you need to use fresh fruit.
The reason for this is because frozen fruit thaws and will have liquid that will come out of the frozen fruit pieces. While it’s technically fine, it’s going to cause your pudding to be runny and not as thick as it should be.
Alternately, you could thaw the frozen berries and replace some of the coconut milk with the juice they create; it changes the flavor and texture slightly, but you may enjoy it so give it a whirl if that’s what you’ve got on hand!
Can I make this chia pudding using other types of fruit?
You can! Have fun trying this recipe with other fruit that you love.
Think blueberries, bananas, and anything else. It’s a simple change that can really alter the taste easily.

What is the best time to eat chia seeds for weight loss?
For a recipe like this, eating it first thing in the morning is a good idea. That way you have the whole day to burn the calories and help in your weight loss journey. Plus, it’s a very satisfying, filling recipe that will fuel you well for the day.
What are some other fun toppings to put on this pudding recipe?
If you want to add a bit more sweetness to this simple breakfast dish, you can always add on some shredded coconut or a little drizzle of honey as well.
Lily’s chocolate chips added in are always a winner, too!
With this recipe being so easy, there isn’t a ton of prep work that needs to be done. Just remember to wash your fruit really well before cutting it up and adding it to the container.
