Blueberry coconut chia pudding is one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made. It’s just 3 ingredients, 5 minutes of prep, and the end result is a creamy, healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.
Over the years I’ve shared a lot of recipes on this blog. And I can’t think of a recipe easier than chia pudding. It’s pretty much foolproof. Even my disaster-in-the-kitchen husband has made it on his own without issue.
To make this blueberry coconut chia pudding, all you need are blueberries, coconut milk and chia seeds.
You give the chia seeds a quick stir into the coconut milk and then put it in the fridge. And that’s pretty much it! The chia seeds will thicken the milk, forming a pudding consistency. When it’s set, you spoon it into jars, bowls, etc, and top it with some blueberries. Super easy!
For these photos I did make it a little fancier because I always get this urge to decorate simple desserts. I added a layer of blueberry puree to the middle. It adds a little more blueberry flavor and color but it’s completely optional. I also froze some fresh blueberries to top it with because I really like the frosted look.

Blueberry Coconut Chia Pudding
- 2 cups coconut milk (see note)
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
optional blueberry puree
- 2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen
- Pour coconut milk into a large bowl or container. Stir in chia seeds. If your mixture is not sweet enough you can stir in a little sweetener, like honey. Refrigerate for several hours until thickened, or overnight.
- Spoon into bowls to serve. Top with fresh blueberries. You can also garnish with coconut flakes. To top with blueberry puree, see step 3.
- To make blueberry puree, simmer blueberries in a small saucepan over the stove until they begin to soften and burst. Crush blueberries with a potato masher for a thicker puree or you can also pour the mixture into a blender to get a thinner consistency. If your blueberries are not sweet enough, you can also add a little sweetener before blending. Spoon puree onto finished chia pudding.
- I recommend using Silk Coconut Milk for this pudding. The Silk brand is a lot thicker than other brands, so the pudding comes out really white and creamy and you don't need to add any additional sweetener.
