I didn’t share this pudding. Definitely meant to, but like many things in this kitchen, the whole bowl ended up being mine.

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Paul goes away for the weekend sometimes, and so I’m left in my kitchen with two choices: (1) make a big batch of stuff for the two of us to share upon his return or, (2) make some single-lady type snacks.

Both options are good.

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

This time I went with a single-lady light snack that’s light and delicious and can be shared if there’s any left.

This pudding is vegan, gluten free, topped with fruit, and full of coconut milk. Win!

Because we can’t aways eat chocolate mousse and granola bars.

HAHAHAHA, of course we can.

I love adding chia seeds to my sweets, so this was an absolute delight. Coconut milk, maple syrup, fruit and chia are best friends!!

  1. Ha – I wouldn’t share this pudding either!

  2. That looks like a proper lady snack, loving this recipe, it involves all of my favourite things, especially coconut milk!

    Coconut milk and chia seeds are such a good combination! Have a fabulous weekend πŸ™‚

  4. Ooooh, this looks all kinds of awesome! I love that you added chia to this, too. It kind of reminds me of a Korean dessert called patbingsu when you eat it with red beans–I like this whole texture of chia with the coconut sweetness πŸ™‚

  5. Ah Katrina this looks so good! You certainly did the dish justice with those photos πŸ˜€

    I love chia puddings and have tried several versions, I have started adding a tablespoon of chia seeds to my oat porridge, and it just gives it that chia-pudding consistency which is lovely πŸ™‚

    Single lady waiting upon her knight’s return definitely knows how to treat herself πŸ˜€ Divine! x

    PS. Have a lovely time visiting your friend over the weekend πŸ˜€ I’m considering going for a wee day trip to Edinburgh (OK, so I did that a couple of weeks ago as it’s only 510 minutes away by train…but still!) over the weekend πŸ™‚ So purrrdy there ^ ^


  6. Love this pudding! So easy and so yummy! Have fun with your bestie this weekend!

  7. Ashley says:

    Ooo this looks like a perfect lady snack! It sounds absolutely delicious!

  8. This definitely looks too good to share. I love making chia pudding as a healthy treat to balance out all the not so healthy treats I consume haha. Beautiful photos!

  9. I’m SO incredibly happy that I grabbed some coconut milk at the store not knowing what I would do with it exactly. And now I see this! So perfect! PINNED!

  10. Cecilia says:

    Hi Katrina, what a great idea for a pudding, and I just love raspberries. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. I still haven’t tried making pudding with chia seeds – definitely need to do that soon! This looks like the perfect snack!

  12. We should eat this AND chocolate mousse and granola bars. Now that’s a really good idea! πŸ™‚

  13. “Single lady snacks” hahaha. This made me laugh, as I totally understand. I love chia and vanilla, as they are one of the best combinations ever. This looks like a nourishing snack.

  14. Joanne says:

    I never share my chia pudding with the.boy! Otherwise there would be no chia pudding left for me, so it’s better for both of us that he thinks he doesn’t like it. πŸ™‚

  15. laura says:

  16. I’ve been craving pudding and this recipe looks lovely! I have all the ingredients ready to go!
