I'm excited about this healthy vanilla pudding recipe made with chia seeds now that the cold season is upon us. At the moment, the weather in Boise, Idaho stands just a bit above the one degree mark, and plenty of people are looking for foods that prevent colds, myself included. Fortunately, this recipe is not only one that you can put into your foods-to-prevent-a-cold file, but also the one labeled this-shouldn't-taste-so-good.

About the Healthy Vanilla Pudding Made With Chia Seeds

Apparently, the good folks at Whole Foods thought that this counted among the best chia seed recipes, because you can find a variation of this at that healthy supermarket that I affectionately call my palace away from home. Oh that kitchen…Anyway, this healthy vanilla pudding recipe brings together chia seeds, soy milk, vanilla and coconut flakes, and is incredibly easy to make. You combine all the ingredients in a jar and shake. That's it.


  • ⅔ c. chia seeds
  • 2 c. almond or soy milk, unsweetened
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp fruit of choice -- dried dates, figs or currants are good options.
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flakes, unsweetened


  1. Combine the chia seeds plus the soy or almond milk and vanilla in a glass jar with a lid (1-quart jar).
  2. Making sure the lid is tight enough, shake the ingredients.
  3. Put the healthy vanilla pudding recipe in the fridge overnight.
  4. Top with the dried fruit and coconut flakes when you're ready to eat the pudding.
