Two glasses of chia seed pudding topped with granola and a cherry.

Black Forest Fruits Chia Pudding

  • Author: Cheryl Whyte
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1
  • Diet: Vegan


  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) unsweetened almond milk (I use RUDE Health Unsweetened Almond Milk)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (65 g) frozen forest fruit berries, thawed
  • 1 tbsp vegan natural coconut yogurt (I use COCOS Organic Natural Coconut Yoghurt)
  • 1 tbsp granola


  1. Prep: Gather and prepare your ingredients. 
  2. Chia Pudding: Whisk the chia seedsalmond milkmaple syrup, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Let it sit for 10 minutes, and allow it to thicken slightly. After 10 minutes, whisk again to remove any clumps that may have formed, and evenly distribute the seeds throughout the milk. Pour the chia pudding into an airtight container, and place it in the fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight.
  3. Black Forest Yogurt: Meanwhile, make the black forest yogurt. Mash the berries with a fork until you are happy with the texture. Alternatively, you can use a small blender. Then stir the yogurt into the puréed fruit until it’s all incorporated. Cover and keep refrigerated until your chia pudding has thickened. 
  4. Toppings: When ready to serve, spoon the black forest yogurt on top of the chia pudding, and sprinkle over a little crunchy granola. I also love to top mine with fresh cherries. 


  • Storage instructions: Store the Black Forest Fruits Chia Pudding in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Always check for freshness!  
  • Freezing instructions: You can also store chia pudding and fruit purée in the freezer for up to a month.
  • A note on granola: It’s best to add granola before serving, so it remains crunchy. 
  • A note on the black forest purée: If you’re making a big batch of this recipe, you may find it easier to purée the fruit in a food processor than mash by hand.
