Why you’ll love this recipe
Raspberries are one of my all-time favourite fruits and I love using raspberries in recipes from cookies to bars to chia pudding! This is probably one of my favourite go-to chia pudding recipes for a healthy breakfast or dessert. Here’s why you’ll love it:
- Chia seeds are packed with SO many health benefits making them a nutritious option.
- This recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-free grain-free, refined sugar-free and can be easily made keto (just substitute the maple syrup in the recipe for a keto sugar substitute.)
- This chia pudding is perfect for meal planning and can be made ahead of time for an easy on-the-go breakfast.
Ingredients you’ll need
Chia seeds: can’t make a chia pudding without chia seeds! You can use either light, dark or mixed chia seeds. They are all the same and will give you the same result.
Almond milk: Homemade or store-bought. You can substitute any type of plant-based milk you love. If you want a creamier chia pudding, opt for full-fat coconut milk
Raspberries: fresh or frozen, they both work. Though fresh raspberries tend to have a more intense flavour.
Maple syrup: to sweeten. You can sub any sweetener you like, such as agave or honey (for a non-vegan option)
Vanilla extract: just a hint for some extra flavour. Make sure to use 100% pure vanilla extract here.
How to make this Raspberry Chia Pudding
Start by making the “raspberry milk” by blending the raspberries, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla together in a blender.
Then add the raspberry milk to a bowl with the chia seeds and mix together until combined.
Place the bowl covered in the fridge to set for minimum 1 hour, but ideally overnight.
Serve topped with your favourite toppings!
Store this chia pudding sealed in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can either store it in a container, in a large mason jar, or in small mason jars so you have individual portions ready to go.
While you can technically freeze chia pudding, I find it does alter the texture and makes it less creamy, so I personally recommend just making a new batch rather than freezing.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Frozen raspberries can have a bit more liquid in them than fresh raspberries, so you may want to add an extra tablespoon of chia seeds if you use frozen raspberries for the recipe.
- Want a more rich and creamy chia pudding? Use full-fat coconut milk for the recipe.
- Use whatever toppings you love! Fresh fruit, cacao nibs and crushed nuts are great options.
