Vanilla Chia Pudding


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • pinch of salt


  • Whipped coconut cream, if desired


Chia Pudding

  1. Combine coconut milk, Calfia Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk, salt, vanilla, chia seeds and coconut sugar into medium mixing bowl.
  2. Mix well to combine.
  3. Let sit at least 20 minutes or as long as overnight in the refrigerator.


  1. Place strawberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut sugar, water and salt into small saucepan.
  2. Bring to medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once it begins to simmer, allow to cook for 8-10 minutes, turning heat down as it starts to boil more (try to keep it at a simmer).
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly (feel free to place the refrigerator for 10 minutes to speed up the process).
  5. Once cooled slightly, use a hand immersion blender to fully combine.

To Serve:

  1. Add vanilla chia pudding to small serving jar or bowl.
  2. Pour as much strawberry mixture on top as you wish.
  3. Top with whipped coconut cream, if desired.


  • Remember to taste a long the way – taste chia pudding after it starts to thicken and add additional coconut sugar to increase sweetness or additional vanilla extract, as desired.
  • You can skip the immersion blender if you want, leaving the cooked down strawberries for a different texture.
  • You can prep everything and add the chia pudding and strawberries together in jars, as shown, the night before.
  • Chia pudding will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator, covered.
  • The strawberry mixture will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator, covered (it would also freeze really well).
  • If you don’t want to use coconut milk you can substitute more Calfia Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk.   It will simply take a little longer to thicken.
  • You can usually find whipped coconut cream at your local grocery store next to you usual whipped cream options.
