  • 1/2 cup whole chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups plant-based milk any variety
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 -4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup granola
  • 15 oz plant-based vanilla yogurt
  • 1 fresh mango or banana diced
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds or berries


  1. To make the chia pudding, add the chia, cacao powder, cinnamon, and salt to a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

    Add the plant-based milk, vanilla, and maple syrup to the dry ingredients. Stir, whisk, or blend with a hand-mixer or in a blender until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

    Pour the mixture into 3-4 small (8 oz) glass jars or airtight containers, or just cover the bowl and divide it up later. Store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  2. When the chia pudding has set, transfer 1/3 - 1/4 of the mixture to clear glasses (or you can just use the jars if they are big enough).

    Layer granola, diced mango or banana, yogurt, granola, more mango, more granola, and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds or berries.

    Add a final dollop of yogurt and enjoy!
