Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk

Rated as 4.78 out of 5 Stars

"Chia seeds make great desserts and are high in omega-3s. This recipe is a healthy alternative to processed desserts. It uses agave (or stevia if you prefer) as a sweetener instead of sugar. Stir again before serving and top with fresh fruit and another dash of cinnamon or spices."

  1. Place chia seeds in a bowl.
  2. Whisk coconut milk, unsweetened coconut milk, agave nectar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl; pour over chia seeds and stir well. Allow coconut milk-chia seed mixture to soak until thickened, at least 20 minutes, or cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Stir pudding and top with strawberries.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute stevia or sugar for the agave.
  • You can also substitute milk, soy milk, or almond milk for the coconut milk. However, this will change the flavor.

This recipe turned out great! My kids enjoyed this and kept eating more! I added fruits like fresh pineapple, kiwi, pears and granola since I didn't have strawberries. It's a keeper!

I just had this at First Watch for breakfast and loved it. So I came home and found this recipe and made some. It was great. It was thinner than the restaurant version, maybe they used canne...

this will definitely replace my old chia seed pudding recipe, I didn't add salt, and I added a banana and dry coconut flakes

I think this will be my standard go-tofor chia pudding as it thickens well and is very healthy. I used all un-sweetened coconut milk (2 and 1/3 cup), and added 2 tbsp regular sugar (rather than ...

Great taste and consistency. I was timid with the cinnamon but will be more aggressive next time. I used Truvia instead of agave and was plenty sweet for me. I mix with raspberries and its amazi...

Terrific! There are no empty calories from starch, so I didn't feel bad that the whole batch disappeared almost at once. We thought we might add a bit more vanilla for our taste, but this was wo...
