Chia Seed Pudding is my go-to whenever I need a quick & portable breakfast, hiking or travel snack, or to satisfy my sweet tooth in a healthy way. This chocolate + coconut yogurt parfait is particularly delicious, satisfying, easy and rich in superfood ingredients. 




  • 1 can full fat unsweetened coconut milk (approximately 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 scant cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 2-4 tbsp maple syrup (vary depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt 
  • Optional Parfait Layers & Toppings: full fat coconut yogurt (I prefer Coyo or The Coconut Cult) sliced fruit (I recommend strawberries + banana), coconut shreds or flakes, cacao nibs, creamy nut butter or chopped dates.


  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Cover bowl and place in fridge until it cools/thickens (at least 2 hours, for best results leave overnight)
  3. When ready to eat, layer into individual glass jars or ramekins, alternating with scoops of pudding and scoops of yogurt, fruit, etc.
  4. Top with toppings of choice and enjoy! 
  5. Will last for about a week in the fridge.
