How to Make Coconut Chia Pudding with Coconut Milk

Today, we’re going to learn how to make coconut chia pudding with coconut milk! Make sure to use full-fat coconut milk, since reduced fat coconut milk will be too liquidy for the right pudding texture and taste.

First, set aside 3 mini jars—these are the jars you will use to store your chia coconut pudding.

Second, scoop the contents of the full-fat coconut milk can into a bowl and melt it. Whisk until smooth and fully liquidy.

Next, whisk in coconut extract and maple syrup to taste. You’ll want to add more for a sweeter taste, less for a less sweet pudding.

After, add the chia seeds and coconut shreds into the same bowl. Whisk all the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.

Then, allow the chia seed pudding mixture to thicken for about 5 minutes.

Once thickened, whisk to evenly distribute the chia seeds and work through any clumps that remained. You’ve just created your chia pudding with coconut milk mixture!

Now, pour the mixture into the jars from earlier. You can use a measuring cup with a lip for easier pouring (mine is 1/4 cup), or a spoon that will fit into the jar.

Lastly, cover and refrigerate the jars for 2-4 hours, or overnight. Serve with coconut whip or toasted coconut and enjoy!

How Long Can I Keep This Coconut Chia Seed Pudding For?

If you use fresh ingredients, you can keep your coconut chia seed pudding for 5-7 days. Remember, the less fresh the ingredients, the fewer days you can keep your pudding. Same applies for Chocolate Chia Pudding (Coconut Milk).
