  • 1 ¼ cups almond milk
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoon chia seeds
  • fruits and granola for topping


  • Warm milk in the microwave so the coconut oil doesn't solidify when adding in. Place all ingredients except chia seeds in large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add chia seeds and stir by hand for 5 minutes. (this is important to do for a full 5 minutes as it gets the chia seeds beginning to gel as well as mix them throughout) Cover and chill in the refrigerator overnight. Top with fruit and granola when eating.


  • Use white chia seeds if you want them to blend in.
  • To avoid lumps, you need to stir the chia seeds for 5 minutes which helps distribute the seeds.
  • If you have some lumps, just stir with a fork before eating.
  • If the chia seed pudding is too thick, add a splash of milk and stir.
  • If you don’t like the tapioca consistency of chia seed pudding and want a smoother texture, just blend it all together in a blender of food processor until it is smooth.
