Delicious & nutritious, high-protein Vegan Chia pudding jars with a strawberry smoothie topping. 

Plus the chia pudding can be meal-prepped in advance for quick 5-minute breakfasts throughout the week!


Layer 1: Chia pudding

  • 1 cup almond milk (or any milk of choice)
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (or your favourite natural sweetener)

Layer 2: Raspberry smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawerries
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any liquid of choice)

Toppings (optional toppings):

  • few frozen raspberries
  • edible flowers (completely optional)


  1. Mix all the chia ingredients together and stir well. Allow to soak for at least 30 minutes stirring well to avoid clumps (best overnight in the fridge).
  2. To stick fruits/veggies on the side of the jar, make sure to cut the fruit/veggie really thin and make sure the glass is dry.
  3. Blend all the smoothie ingredients.
  4. Layer the two and top with any toppings you like.

  3. Hi. I used cold fresh milk with Chia seeds in an airtight jar and left it in the fridge overnight, but the Chia seeds did not puff up. How long does it take to become a pudding? Thanks.

      Hi Sorry for the late reply Karen, that is very strange! Usually they sweet in about five minutes! I have a video on this next week, one quick solution would be to try with less liquid? in the one I put last night on my instagram page I put 1/3 cup chia to one cup liquid and it was perfect consistency even after just ten minutes! x

  4. Looks so elegant! What fruit did you stick on the side of the glass?

      Thanks so much Afraa, that is pink watermelon radish (very thinly sliced for decoration, but you can use any fruit, if you make it think enough it will stick) 🙂 x
