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.

Hi Michelle, I think my ice cream recipes are only in my members-only area (TRK). But basically, for a super simple ice cream,  peel and freeze chopped bananas. Then process in a food processor.  = ice cream

Oops! I answered the above too lol!

For the raw chocolate pudding, that'll freeze better. Go for it!

Hi Hilary, I would be more inclined to dehydrate it than freeze it. If you do freeze it, I'd put it in little ice cube trays (or popsicle molds) and then use in smoothies later  - I don't think it will defrost back to its original state

Yum yum yum! This is soooo good Laura! Thanks so much for the recipe! :) I found that the recipe was pretty sweet thouugh, so I only needed to use 2 Tbs of honey instead of 3. I think next time I might even use less. Soooo good though! Thanks again :D

Note to Ken who just left me a voicemail - no, it doesn't make your bowl overflow so your bowl in the fridge will be just fine :) The chia seeds will absorb the moisture that is there, rather than grow too much :)

Made this today with a punnet of freshly picked strawberries, fresh honey straight from the apiarist but omitted the cocoa. It is still pure heaven!

This came out too chocolatey. I was expecting it to taste more like the strawberries I used, but the cocoa powder overpowered it. I must say that the photo you used looks like you didn't put in cocoa powder, at least compared to the way mine looked.

It was still pretty tasty, just not really what I was in the mood for.

This was pretty good! I think the next time I make it I will add even more berries. I used fresh strawberries. However, I had to force myself to not eat the whole thing in one sitting because I am new to eating chia seeds and I know they can expand even more... pretty good.

Lol that is good that you didn't eat the whole thing - as tempting as it is!

I do usually use frozen thawed fruit for this - there is probably more packed into them since they get all squishy and dense when thawed from frozen. Thus I think it's a wise comment that you've made

Hmmm, I will have to bear that in mind. I get such good produce where I live, especially this time of year, that it was hard to resist using the fresh berries. That being said, I think if I make this again I may cut the recipe in half so then I can eat the whole thing in one sitting...it got really thick after a day or two in the fridge...

Fresh is always best though.So no need to resist :)

I like it when it gets thick in the fridge! Just give it a vigorous stir before eating
