  • This is a delicious raw chia tapioca pudding recipe. The chia seeds become gelatinous and really remind me of good old-fashioned tapioca. Mmm!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

One of my favourite foods right now are chia seeds.

What is their claim to fame (besides being known for sprouting those famous "chia pets")?

1. They become gelatinous, like tapioca, which makes them fun to use!

2. They are very filling.

3. They have an interesting texture which is a nice addition to the raw food lifestyle. (Jelly-like balls!)

4. Chia seeds are an incredible superfood.

This raw chia tapioca pudding recipe is delicious and a great way to incorporate chia seeds into your diet.

Perhaps this should be called a tapioca-like pudding, since calling it tapioca is misleading. Sounds delicious though.

I've tried making a chia pudding before but I noticed that the bulk chia seeds have what look like tiny twigs in them. Is that normal? I've gotten them prepackaged before and they didn't have them. I'd prefer bulk but I'd like it to just be the seeds. Any ideas?

I've seen that before too, Brett. It's probably just a lower-grade chia seed that hasn't been sifted quite as vigorously. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but pick them out if you can. Or maybe complain to your bulk retailer and ask for a better grade chia seed. Although the price may go up :)

Hi, I haven't made this yet, but I noticed that the amounts of water stated in the ingredients list and the directions are different. I understand you recently changed the water measurement in the ingredients, but I guess you forgot to change it in the directions.

Great recipe-- I just made the pudding and it was delicious--thank you! Wondering how we could make it slightly less liquid and more creamy?

Is it possible to substitute almonds for cashews? Would the process be the same? Thanks!

Hey, I made this and the rice and find that this one has a cup more water and is runny, is 3 cups a typo?

Hi Stephanie, Great comment and astute thinking! I have now reduced the water down to 2 and a half cups, which might make it more puddingy. I agree that as time passes I have enjoyed thicker puddings.
