This three ingredients coconut yogurt chia seed pudding it's super easy to prepare, it is delicious and creamy, and makes a great nutritious breakfast or snack. Plus... it's loaded with coconut goodness!! Vegan & keto friendly.
Did you know that chia seeds have so many health benefits? They are super rich in nutrients, healthy fats (they are an excellent source of omega-3) and antioxidants. A coconut chia pudding is a fantastic way to up their intake!
I love pairing this coconut chia pudding recipe to make yogurt bowls with some homemade granola like my ginger turmeric granola or this crispy chocolate rice cereal and fresh fruit. You can also get creative and make a papaya breakfast bowl (my summer favourite!).
All you need to make this creamy chia pudding are three simple ingredients:
- Chia seeds
- Coconut water
- Coconut yoghurt (you can use flavoured yogurt if you prefer, like vanilla coconut yogurt)

How to make coconut yogurt chia pudding
Making coconut yogurt chia pudding couldn't be easier!
First of all, add the chia seeds and coconut water to a lidded jar. Give it a good stir to combine, and let it rest in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed by the seeds. You should end up with a gel-like consistency like in the photo below.
Then add the coconut yogurt and combine well all the ingredients. You will end up with a delicious creamy texture. And that's it, ready to enjoy!
Tip: you can play around with the proportions of this recipe! If you like it more seedy, add more chia seeds & coconut water. If you rather more yogurt-y, increase the amount of yogurt instead!
You can make a few variations to this recipe, and it would still be super yum!
- Canned coconut milk - instead of coconut yogurt. Full fat coconut milk or light coconut milk will do the job! If you opt for this, add more chia seeds. Bear in mind that coconut milk chia pudding won't be as creamy as with yogurt.
- Plant-based milk: like almond milk or coconut milk drink instead of coconut water
- Vegan yogurt or greek yogurt (if dairy tolerant) - instead of coconut yogurt.
- Add vanilla extract - for an extra touch
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days (if the coconut yogurt is just been opened). My preferred option is always a lidded glass jar.
- Fresh fruit: fresh berries like fresh strawberries or wild blueberries, banana, papaya and fresh figs are some of my favorites!
- Cacao nibs, shredded coconut and crispy coconut flakes
- Nuts or nut butter
- A drizzle of pure maple syrup if you have a sweet tooth!
This recipe it's a great make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings, to have ready to go! If you're preparing for meal prep, make at least double the amount of this recipe.
