Kids Love Chia Pudding

Kids Love Chia Pudding

Not only is this ridiculously easy to make, but if you have kids on Instagram, all they see are beautiful chia pudding combos so you’re not going to have to twist their arms to try it! networking peer pressure for nutritional good!

After you make the basic pudding, pour it in a clear glass container and top with fruit of your choice to make extra yummy and colorful.


  • 2 cups coconut milk (homemade or natural)
  • ½ cup Chia Seeds
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 packets of Stevia or you can use a sweetener of your choice.

Mix all of the ingredients in a big bowl and cover. No cooking!! Simply put this in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

The chia will plump up in this time frame and become a tasty pudding that is gluten-free, high in omega-fatty acids, calcium and protein. Shhh..don’t tell the kids it’s so healthy.

Note: The bright pink in my fruit chia bowl is Pataya or Dragon Fruit! I found frozen packets of Pitaya at my local grocery store in the frozen fruit/smoothie section. A little goes a long way – blend a little with banana and it will be a fun bright pink!

  • Hi! What kind of coconut milk do you usually use: for cooking or drinking one? Sorry for a “stupid” question, but I tried to make it once with cooking coconut milk and it didn’t work out.

    • Hi Victoria! Did you let it sit long enough? I used the Sprouts canned coconut milk. Make sure to stir it really well before adding. If it’s too thick, just add about 1/4 cup water to the milk to make it thinner. Waiting over night is best to really let it soak in. 😉
