Make ahead + meal prep friendly

Chia pudding is probably one of my favorite ways to meal prep. You can throw it together in just a few minutes, and then it’s ready to go when you need a quick and easy breakfast or snack on hand. To take it to the next level, I even like to separate out this Paleo chia pudding into single serve sized containers, so that I really just have to grab one out of the fridge, and I’m ready to go.

Do I have to use blueberries in this Paleo chia seed pudding?

No, you could really use any berries you’d like. We have tons of blueberries on hand from Justin’s mom. She’s got a really amazing garden with a bunch of blueberry bushes, so we’ve been using them up as much as we can! Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries would all be great, and you could follow along with the exact same instructions to reduce the berries.

What’s so great about chia seeds?

Chia seeds are often referred to as a superfood. They’re great because they’ve got pretty much the perfect macro makeup – omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and protein. There is just one net carb in two tablespoons – so it’s a great high fiber source if you’re looking to add more fiber to your diet.

These tiny seeds also expand to hold about 10 times their weight in liquid, which is pretty crazy. When combined with water or another liquid, chia seeds turn into a gel-like consistency, and they take on the flavors of whatever you enjoy them with. So, basically that means this Paleo chia seed recipe is creamy, blueberry heaven!

  • Place chia seeds, non-dairy milk, sea salt, collagen (if using) and vanilla (if using) in a bowl. Combine with a whisk, stirring continuously until chia seeds begin to expand and the texture thickens. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan or skillet over medium heat add berries. Cook, stirring often until the berries break down and get saucy. They don't have to be fully broken down if you prefer them to have a little more texture.
  • Separate the berry mixture into the bottom of a smaller jar, layer chia pudding on top (or do the reverse with chia pudding on the bottom and berries on top) and add any additional optional toppings you'd like. Cover and store in the fridge. You can enjoy cold or heat up for about 30 seconds before eating. Enjoy!

  • This is a fantastic recipe, I love chia seed pudding but using the fresh fruit as a jam on top was amazing and helped with the no added sugar in the recipe. I will definitely make this again but try it with strawberries as I have lots of them. Thank you for sharing it!

  • I absolutely LOVED this for breakfast this morning. Because I do a little sweet, I added a drizzle of honey. So delicious!

    • As part of our real food/paleo lifestyle we don’t track any nutrition information personally, and it has been really liberating for us and helped us find food freedom. For that reason we don’t post the nutrition info on our recipes, with the only exception being the Keto specific recipes on our site. You could plug the ingredients into an online nutrition calculator if needed though.

  • How far ahead of time could you make this and keep it? Do you think you could make it two days ahead of time and it would still be ok?

  • This is on regular rotation for breakfast in my house! Love how simple it is, easy to make ahead and can modify with different fruits and toppings. Thank you so much for adding a healthy, delicious breakfast to my rotation when I was feeling uninspired and resorting to less healthy options!

  • Simple and tasty. Perfect for a morning when you need a quick bite before running out the door. I made mine the night before. I had to leave the house early so the kids were on their own for breakfast. It was so easy for them to just grab this from the fridge before heading to school.
