Coconut Milk Chia Pudding

This coconut chia pudding recipe is dairy free deliciousness and can be dressed up with different spices, sweeteners, & garnishes.  Instead of cinnamon try pumpkin pie spice or chai flavors such as a combo of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, & nutmeg.  Sweeten with maple syrup, honey, stevia, fruit juice, or any kind of sugar.  Top it with toasted coconut flakes, seeds, nuts, or fruit.  I prefer full fat canned coconut milk but you could also use refrigerated coconut cream (or almond milk if you like) or light coconut milk – it will just take longer to “set”.

  • 15 ounce can full fat coconut milk (2 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup black whole chia seeds
  • fruit & nuts to garnish – optional


  • Toss the coconut milk, syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon into a blender.  Blend for 5-10 seconds or until smooth and integrated.  You want to mix it up not pulverize it!  Pour into a bowl and mix in chia seeds.  Add more sweetener or spice to taste.  Top with garnishes.
  • Happy puddin’ eatin!  Beckie



  • Don’t want to use a blender.  Cool.  Whip it by hand but sometimes the fat separates into a blob in a can of coconut milk and it can be hard to hand whip to integrate it.
  • Don’t like whole chia seeds?  Cool.  Stick them in the blender too and blend ’em up.


Things In My Kitchen:

  • Professional blender – I love my low profile Vitamix blender but this Ninja is almost as good and tons cheaper.
  • Chia Seeds – I prefer them whole for texture & black for contrast with the coconut milk.
