  • 3 cups unsweetened, plain coconut milk beverage (the kind in the carton) or light canned coconut milk if preferred
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chia seeds


  • fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, bananas, etc.
  • peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter or other nut butter
  • jam or preserves
  • shredded coconut
  • cacao nibs
  • granola (I used my oil-free, gluten-free granola)


  • Add the coconut milk to a 4-cup glass bowl with a lid followed by the maple syrup, vanilla and chia seeds.
  • Whisk together until everything is well-combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight (at least 5-6 hours). Use a spoon to stir and break up any chia clumps before serving.
  • Enjoy alone or with your favorite add-ons.



If you're able to, you can stir the pudding 1 or 2 times during refrigeration to lessen the amount of chia clumps.
I found that using a wider vessel provides the best results with less clumping. I used a 7-cup glass container with a 7-inch diameter.
See the post above regarding using a different type of plant-based milk.
