    Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding is the perfect red, white and blue treat for this weekend. 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.

    Serves 3 servings     adjust servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 can (14 ounces / 400 mL) full-fat coconut milk
    • 5–6 Tablespoons chia seeds
    • 1 teaspoon maca powder
    • 1 scoop vanilla protein (I recommend Stronger Faster Healthier*), optional
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
    • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries

    Instructions

    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.

    Change It Up

    • Use strawberries instead of blueberries.
    • Try almond milk instead of coconut milk.
    • Add a dash of almond extract to the pudding and top with sliced almonds.
    • Omit the vanilla protein and sweeten with honey or maple syrup.

    1. 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.

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

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

    3. 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.
