Recipe Directions

  • 1. Throw everything in the blender EXCEPT THE CHIA SEEDS!
  • 2. Blend in a high-speed blender 'til very very well blended. You can't really overblend this, so feel free to go nuts.
  • 3. Place the chia seeds in a large bowl. Slowly pour the blender concoction over the chia seeds, and stir very well.
  • 4. Stir - Probably take the bowl with you in front of the TV and stir for 10 minutes or so. The purpose of all this stirring is to help the chia seeds declump and plump up. Remember, the chia seeds are like tapioca and they will expand in size. Try not to eat too much of the pudding now. Just take a few tiny spoonfulls and that's it!! Don't eat the whole bowl in front of the TV because it gets even better once it's been refrigerated for an hour or two!
  • 5. Refrigerate - Once everything is nicely stirred and there are no clumps, cover and refrigerate for an hour or two. The purpose of doing this is to let the chia seeds plump up over time. You could probably let this chia seed fruit pudding sit on the counter for the same amount of time rather than refrigerate it.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Creamy raw fruit chia puddings are yet another vice of mine. In fact, my tummy is full of one right now!

This creamy raw fruit chia pudding is my new favourite chia pudding, which is replacing my old favourite chia pudding recipe (although that one may be an oldie but it's still a goody, too!).

In case you don't know what chia seeds are, they are tiny seeds that plump up like tapioca. By the way, you cannot make this recipe without the chia seeds, so don't substitute anything for the chia seeds!

If you try this recipe please let me know what you think. To me, when I make it with raspberries or strawberries this chia pudding reminds me of melted Neapolitan (strawberry, chocolate, vanilla) ice cream.

Keeps in the fridge for probably 2 days. STIR vigorously after removing from fridge. (It never lasts very long in my house, by the way, because we eat it right away b/c it's so good.)

I have never frozen it. It is actually a great contender for freezing - maybe you could make popsicles out of it and eat it like a popsicle?? Never done it myself though

Will the chia seeds still plump up if I throw them into the blender?

If you blend the chia seeds they will make the WHOLE recipe be slightly gelatinous - but you won't get the "tapioca" pearl feel.

But that's okay, it'll just be more smooth and creamy, which is a nice alternative

Love the recipe tho' I think next time I'll cut back on the agave a little.
To the person whose chia seeds did not plump: my WF keeps the chia immediately next to the poppyseeds in identical containers. I almost made poppyseed raw pudding when i grabbed the wrong one in a hurry. You might want to check the labels before the check out lane, just in case!
Keep those recipes coming!

Lol, deep breaths! They can take a couple of hours to expand. Did you stir them really well? Did they eventually expand??

Please come back with an update! Inquiring minds want to know :)

It's possible that your chia seeds are duds, but I've never experienced that problem.

Where did you get your chia seeds from?

That's odd! Darn that whole foods.

Can you still eat the pudding? I would think it's probably a bit runnier than usual, but it should still taste okay.

Send me your mailing address to lj@therawtarian.com and I'll send you some sample chia seeds in the mail for free. (I've got a bunch.) That should cheer you up a bit :)

Yummy! It DOES taste like melted Neopolitan ice cream. I ground my chia seeds first in the cofee grinder and it's really smooth-- like gelatinous melted ice cream. Yum. Thanks! I always love your recipes. For the past month, my fridge is always stocked with chia seed pudding and I eat it with fruit for breakfast each morning.

Grinding the seeds is a good idea! Nice alternative, although I do like the chewiness of the balls, except I don't like it when they get stuck in my teeth :)

Delicious! I tend to add a decent amount of Hemp nuts (shelled hemp seed) for their protein and other benefits when I'm making almost anything, and they work very nicely in this! Thanks for sharing!!

I am going to try this recipe real soon. Sounds yummy!
@kristi, check Whole Foods Vitamin section. They tend to move
items like chia seeds to different departments.
Have a great day.

Frannie, if you do try it let us know how you liked it and whether you modified it at all.

I keep meaning to try other fruits but I just love raspberries so much that I keep making it with raspberries.

Good tip about Whole Foods. Why do stores insist on moving everything around?? Just when we think we've got it figured out... ;)

This looks so yummy and I am definitely going to try it out! As for your comment, Kristi, I was unable to find chia seeds locally too so I just get them online at thechiaseed.com

They sell them in pound and a half bags which last me about a month and the shipping is free, so it is overall the best place I could find to buy chia seeds online, and I've been getting my chia seeds from them for about 2 years now. Hope this helps!
