This vegan strawberry chia pudding reminds me of the breakfast parfaits I used to get from McD’s before I went vegan – but with a healthy twist!

I’ve tried many a chia pudding recipes, but this one – along with my Mango Chili Chia Parfait – is my favorite. It only takes about 15 minutes to prep, and then you pop it in the fridge overnight. It is great for meal prepping.

Vegan Chia Breakfast

Chia is such a great choice for breakfast, and it’s very easy to make vegan. Chia is nutrient dense, low calorie, and full of antioxidants. It also has a ton of fiber, which will help keep you full until its time for lunch. There are so many ways to eat chia for breakfast, but blending it with fruit and coconut milk to make chia pudding is one of my favorites.

Here are some other vegan chia breakfast ideas you can try:

  • Add it to juice and let is soak overnight for a chia juice.
  • Add chia seeds to a smoothie for a punch of antioxidants – you can soak them ahead of time in water or add them raw.
  • Bake chia is banana bread or breakfast muffins.
  • Add chia seeds to pancake mix.
  • Sprinkle chia seeds on your oatmeal.
  • Add chia seeds to your breakfast tea.

Coconut Milk Chia Pudding

Coconut milk is (IMO) the best plant milk. It has a nice fresh taste and offers many health benefits, including improved hair and skin. You can use the low fat version of coconut milk you get in a carton if you want, but I prefer full fat coconut milk that comes in a can. This will help create the really creamy consistency you expect with pudding.

To make coconut milk chia pudding, you just process four ingredients together: chia seeds, coconut milk, the frozen fruit of your choice and a little bit of maple syrup. Once all your ingredients are blended pour them into containers and pop them in the fridge to chill overnight. The chia will firm up overnight, so don’t worry if the pudding isn’t as creamy as you expect when you’re done blending it.

Tips & Tricks

  • Chill your canned coconut milk upside down in the fridge overnight. When you open it the next day the liquid will separate from the fat. This recipe does not use the liquid – but you can save it for a smoothie!
  • Let your chia parfaits sit overnight before enjoying. Chia needs some time to expand and soak up the moisture.
