Lemon Drop Chia Pudding


I've been experimenting  with different types of chia puddings for a bit and this was too delicious not to share. Another plus is that just about everyone I know could it eat! It's vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, chocolate-free, has no refined sugars, and is nutrient dense to boot! Perhaps I'll try a grapefruit flavor next and see how it does.

Lemon Drop Chia Pudding 

Mix together:

  • 1 can of coconut milk (I used full fat)
  • Juice and zest of 1 organic lemon (if you're using the peel it's best to get organic)
  • 1/3c chia seeds 
  • Sweeten to taste (I used about 1/4 cup of maple syrup)
  • 1t Vanilla extract. 

It'll take about an hour to fully soak up the liquid and won't solidify until it's been chilled for a bit longer. It's delicious for days - although I can't honestly attest to longer than a couple as it's never lasted longer in our house.



  1. Looks great - here is another chia pudding from Imani of Alchemy Juice Bar in Hartford:

    Chia Seed Tapioca
    Inspirational Ingredients:
    ½ c. chia seeds
    1 ½ c. almond mylk (or whatever type of mylk you
    would like to use)
    1 tsp. cinnamon (or more to taste)
    2 tb. liquid sweetener (raw honey or really raw
    agave nectar to taste)
    2 tsp. liquid vanilla (*recipe listed under Blender
    Beverage section)
    Combine all ingredients and whisk. Let mixture sit for about
    10-15 minutes, and stir with the whisk a few times during
    that time. Omega-rich and soooo good

  2. I'm going out to buy a lemon.
    An organic lemon.
