Switch up your standard breakfast routine with this creamy and nourishing chia pudding. These small but mighty seeds absorb your milk of choice and double in size into a gel-like consistency. Because the seeds need a few hours to fully blossom, this makes a great make-ahead breakfast or snack. Dress it up with juicy, macerated strawberries and granola, or mixed berries and toasted nuts. Not only is this pudding refreshing and delicious, but it's also highly nutritious. Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants, fiber, protein, and heart-healthy omega-3s. Dig in!


  • .50 cup chia seeds

  • teaspoon  kosher salt

  • .50 cup plain whole-milk yogurt or unsweetened coconut yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 cups whole milk or coconut milk

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced (4 cups), plus more for serving

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • .50 cup granola


  1. Combine chia seeds and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in yogurt and vanilla. Slowly pour in milk, whisking constantly. Continue to whisk for 1 minute to break up any clumps. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

  2. Gently toss strawberries with sugar in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.

  3. To serve, divide strawberry mixture between 4 glasses or bowls, using a slotted spoon. Top with chia pudding, 2 tablespoons granola each, and more sliced strawberries.
