Vanilla mixed berry chia pudding – a vanilla chia base topped with a creamy mixed berry soft serve.
This delicious vanilla mixed berry chia pudding makes a wonderful breakfast, snack or healthy dessert! It’s creamy, rich, thick and naturally sweetened.
The recipe is simple, requiring just 6 ingredients (4 for the chia pudding and 2 for the soft serve) and 7 minutes preparation time (plus chilling).
To make the pudding, mix the chia seeds with unsweetened almond milk, pure vanilla extract, maple syrup, and let it sit overnight to thicken. Then, in the morning, prepare the mixed berry soft serve by blending 1/2 cup of frozen mix berries and 1 frozen banana in a food processor or powerful blender until smooth and creamy. If your berries are tart, you can add some honey or maple syrup.
Once you have both components ready, grab two jars or glasses, layer the chia pudding and soft serve, add your favorite toppings and dig in.
The best part is that you can never get bored of this as you can easily customize it. Add some cinnamon, peanut butter, matcha powder, or cacao powder to the chia pudding. I used unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk, but any milk would work – rice, soy, hemp, coconut, regular milk, etc.. Top it with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, chopped nuts, cacao nibs, granola – whatever takes your fancy. Feel free to mix and match and get creative!
Chia pudding will keep for about 5 days in the fridge.
