Dairy-Free Paleo Eggnog Chia Pudding

Dairy-Free Paleo Eggnog Chia Pudding | stupideasypaleo.com This dairy-free eggnog pudding is based on my Coconut Chia Seed Pudding. I was in the mood for a holiday treat the other day and thought “eggnog”…but then I thought how quickly drinking it down would be over and decided to make the eggnog but add chia seeds to thicken it. I also omitted the booze but hey, if you want to add it, go ahead…you’re the captain of the ship after all. The result was thick and creamy with just a hint of sweetness. I used coconut milk instead of dairy but you could certainly use heavy cream or milk if that’s your preference.

You can make this eggnog chia pudding the old fashioned way by tempering the eggs first, but I just made it stupid-easy by dumping most of the ingredients in the blender and then heating it gently on the stove until it thickened. The quantities can be easily doubled / tripled or more if you want to make a larger batch.

Directions for Dairy-free Paleo Eggnog Chia Pudding

  1. Place the dates in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit for 15-20 min to soften. Drain the water.
  2. Add the dates, coconut milk, egg yolks and vanilla extract to the blender.
  3. Blend on high speed until the dates are broken down (about a minute).
  4. Pour the mixture into a heavy-bottomed pot and heat on low, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens…this should only take a few minutes. Be careful! You don’t want it to curdle.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the cinnamon, nutmeg and chia seeds. Stir very well.
  6. Pour the eggnog mixture into a storage container (I like mason jars or other glass-lock containers) or serving glasses.
  7. Allow to sit for at least an hour, preferably 2 or more, before eating. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon or nutmeg or some coconut whipped cream before serving.

    Oh my gosh, I have been craving eggnog and I think this will do the trick. My kids are coming Tues to celebrate Christmas with me and I think I will make this for them. Who knew chia seeds could thicken a pudding. Since I am pretty new to paleo I am learning all the time. I have 35 years experience in the food industry with cooking and creating recipes but it is always very exciting to learn new and more real techniques.

    I tried to print this too and also had a problem. I see where you can eliminate the photos but not anywhere to simply print the recipe plus one photo. Can you please double check to make sure this is working as you expect?

      Hi Beth…if you hover over each section, a little shaded box will pop up and say “click to delete.” So instead of checking the box that says “remove images” try that. I am working on retrofitting all my old recipes to a more streamlined system but as you can imagine, it’s taking a while :)
