Recipe Directions

Combine everything! It works best if you use some sort of container with a lid. That way, you can shake it every few minutes for 30 minutes or so. Then, just let it sit until you’re ready to eat it (I usually leave it for a few hours, but you could eat it after the first 30 minutes if you wanted). If you don’t have a lid, stir it periodically for the first 30 minutes. If you don’t stir or shake it, the chia seeds clump together.

Adjust quantities and ingredients to taste, as always! The raisins and dryer meat of a mature coconut make this pudding especially thick, but if you want a soupier pudding you could use more mylk (I used almond). I also find that with the sweetness of the mylk and raisins it doesn’t necessarily need any more sweetener, but it’s sort of nice sometimes. Use vanilla beans if you’ve got ‘em.

It’s definitely not the most attractive pudding in the world, but it’s tasty! Oh, and those are golden raisins in the picture. But of course use what you’ve got. I’m sure any dried fruit would work great. Or, if you’re not into dried fruit, you could use fresh fruit, but you might want to adjust the mylk because the raisins help soak it up to make the pudding thicker.

Suzyq's Thoughts

I’ve been enjoying all sorts of chia puddings since getting the idea from the “tapioca” chia pudding on this site. This was my attempt to create one reminiscent of the rice pudding my grandma used to make for breakfast!

I just bought some Hunza raisins, so I will definitely give this a try. Thanks! :)

Tiger lily--those are chia seeds! Once they hit liquid, they absorb something like 7x their volume in water and puff up into little jelly balls. It's crazy! And delicious. I think it's the same phenomenon as with flax seeds--some sort of soluble fiber the seeds exude. Definitely no tapioca there!

Bluedolfin--yum, I bet fresh blueberries would be awesome. Oh blueberry season can't come fast enough :)

Glad you liked it, Satchy. Hope the dogs enjoyed, too :)

That sounds delish! It looks like there are real tapioca pearls in there, though? The chia seeds I have seen are SMALL, what is that I am seeing in the photograph??

Recently, I did something very similar with frozen blueberries instead of raisins. Yummy also!

I just made this for dessert (as I happened to have all the ingredients on hand). I really liked the combination of flavors. Thank you!

But note to self: Make sure lid of container is completely closed before shaking! Lets just say that my dogs got a little sampling before I did.
