These might be the tasty treat for you! Chia seed ‘puddings’ make a great breakfast or snack – prep them ahead of time for a quick option. They can easily become a portable meal, just make them directly into a watertight storage tub for food on the go. You can adapt the recipe really easily – keep the ratio of chia seeds to liquids the same. The texture of chia seeds can seem a little strange at first – they take on liquid and turn to a soft gel-like consistency – but they taste great when combined with fruit and yogurt.

Serves 2. Takes 10-15 minutes to prepare, plus 2 hours or more chilling time


  • 250ml milk of your choice (we used coconut milk)
  • 45g chia seeds
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana, roughly mashed
  • 100g blueberries or raspberries
  • Handful of dates or prunes, pitted and chopped
  • 4-6 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 1 kiwi, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 2 mint leaves


Put the berries and dried fruit in a pan and gently heat for a few minutes until softened and juicy. Mash if needed and set aside to let cool.

Place milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract and banana into a bowl and stir well to combine.

Divide chia seed mixture into two glasses, ramekins or tubs. Top with a good dollops of the berry mixture and some sliced kiwi, then add yoghurt, a few mint leaves and a sprinkle of flaxseeds.

Place in the fridge and leave for at least 2 hours or ideally overnight until the chia seeds swell into a gel like consistency.
