You might think this is some weird California thing, but it is seriously delicious for breakfast or dessert. And it really is good for you too: high in fiber, each chia seed can retain 8-9 times its weight in fluid.

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar. Seal, then shake thoroughly to combine.
  2. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, then shake once more.
  3. Return to the refrigerator and let sit for 15-30 minutes longer to allow the chia to thicken into a spoonable pudding.
  4. To serve, top with additional coconut, berries and dates.

Note: Chia pudding will last for up to one week, refrigerated.
