1. Mango Coconut Chia Pudding

I’m starting this roundup with one of my favorite chia puddings. This vibrant and delightfully sweet dish combines two classic exotic flavors, mango and coconut, for a sumptuously fruity chia pudding.

Pairing the bold sweetness of mango and the subtle sweetness of coconut makes for a really balanced pairing. Plus, both these fruits add freshness and aromatic notes to the chia pudding, which never fails to put me in a positive mood.

Bananas and strawberries are a tried, tested, and beloved pairing, so I simply had to try them both in a chia pudding which delivers a wonderful fruity punch.

You’ve got the freshness, sweetness, and slight sharpness of the strawberries lacing the dense, sweet creaminess of the banana for a mouthful packed with refreshing flavor.

Add the crunch of the chia seeds, and you have a chia pudding that can be enjoyed as a fruit-filled morning breakfast, afternoon pick-me-up, or health-conscious dessert all in one.

3. Vanilla Banana Chia Pudding

If you’re ready to indulge in a truly luxurious chia pudding for dessert, my vanilla banana chia pudding should go to the top of your list.

Combing the delicate sweetness of banana and coconut milk, this dish is finished with a tablespoon of vanilla paste, which brings floral, sweet, almost caramel-like notes to the pudding.

Hitting that perfect level of sweet and creamy without being overbearing, no one would blame you for eating this show-stopper at any time of the day!

4. Tropical Chia Pudding

Straight from a picturesque white beach lapped by crystal waters in the Caribbean, my tropical chia pudding brings a welcome taste of paradise to you in a big way.

The juiciness of the pineapple, floral sweetness of the coconut, tartness of the passion fruit, and fleshy sweetness of the kiwi fruit combine to make a pudding that delivers bold, fruity flavors with each and every mouthful.

For those warm summer evenings when you’re hungry but don’t want to put the hob or oven on, this is one of my go-to snacks. I even serve it in a big cocktail glass to really make me feel like I’m on holiday!

5. Chocolate Chia Pudding

Sometimes in life, you just have to let that naughty side take over for a moment, and that’s exactly what I did with my chocolate chia pudding recipe!

In this rich pudding, I’ve used dark chocolate and cacao powder to add deep, earthy notes to the sweet banana and coconut.

This is the chia pudding you pull out of the fridge when the sun has set, and it’s time to relax in front of the TV in your pajamas. It’s indulgent, thick, and chocolatey, and it doesn’t try to hide it one bit!

6. Blueberry Chia Pudding

If you struggle in the mornings to find time for a hearty and nourishing breakfast, my blueberry chia pudding could be the perfect grab-and-go snack for you to eat on your commute.

Putting one of the most well-known superfoods at the forefront, I’ve paired it with orange zest, almond milk, chia seeds, and a sweetener such as agave syrup for a snack that is mildly sweet and citrussy, and a more health-conscious choice.

Use it to fuel up in the morning, boost your mind and body during the afternoon slump, or get some goodness in you if you’re working late and want to avoid unhealthy takeout.

Perfect for a health-conscious, quick, and simple breakfast, my orange-cinnamon yogurt chia pudding has a fun, light, and creative flavor profile.

I love the sweet and sour of the orange with the spice of the cinnamon, lacing each and every creamy and crunchy bite.

Top this with a handful of granola once you pull it from the fridge, and you have a simple and nourishing breakfast that, let’s be honest, you can eat any time you like.
