Seeing as it’s Memorial Day, I put together a quick, easy, festive treat for your holiday picnic or BBQ. You can make them parfait-style like I did here or just plop the chia pudding on the bottom and the fruit on top.

The sky is the limit with how you can adding your own toppings or customize them! You can make these in advance and keep them refrigerated until serving.

How to Make Chia Seed Pudding

Making Chia Seed Pudding is so simple. You’ll whisk together some kind of liquid like coconut milk and the dried chia seeds. Then, you can add different flavorings, boosts, and toppings. As the mixture sits in the refrigerator, the chia seeds will soak up the liquid and plump up.

Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding is a tasty and refreshing summer treat when topped with fresh berries and boosted with protein. It's paleo-friendly and dairy-free!



  • 14 oz coconut milk
  • 5 tbsp whole chia seeds
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut milk, chia seeds, maca, vanilla protein and vanilla extract. Whisk constantly until the chia seeds are evenly distributed and not lumpy. Refrigerate and stir occasionally until the pudding has thickened, about 1 hour. If it’s too thin, add another tablespoon of chia seeds.
  2. In small mugs or serving cups, layer a few spoonfuls of chia pudding in the bottom, then a layer of fresh raspberries, followed by another layer of chia pudding and then a layer of fresh blueberries. There’s really no wrong way to do it so be creative. Eat immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving.

  1. I would love to try this, can I omit the maca powder or should it be replaced with something else?

  2. Thank you very much for this recipe. I would do it with almond milk and 1 scoop of protein for each serving. It is too many calories for a snack for me, but it would make a great breakfast. I’m really looking forward to trying this.

  3. Hi Steph, the maca powder has to be cooked, otherwise it’s toxic. Originally, the people who traditionally eat it always cook the preparation.

    1. I have not heard that before, and nothing on the package or in my research warns of that. Do you have a source?

  4. I really want something different – I am just starting to eat Paleo – so I made a version of this. No maca powder and I used frozen mixed berries. It is in the fridge right now and I hope it hits the spot. I so want to stick with this eating plan.
