Posted by Marie-Eve Maitland on 18th Jul 2016

This is perfect to start your day or as a sweet pudding at the end of a meal. Very versatile and filling. Both the chia pudding and jam need to be made the day before to give them time to set and cool.

This recipe is vegan and gluten free.


(makes 2-3 generous servings) 

Chia Pudding: 

  • 1/4 cup a chia seeds 
  • 2 cups almond milk or coconut milk*

Gooseberry Vanilla Jam: 

  • 2 cups of either... gooseberries/blackberry/raspberry - your pick!
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of Himalayan Salt

To serve: your choice of nuts and/or seeds (1/4 cup)


  1. Mix the chia seeds and almond milk (or coconut) in a bowl, cover and let it rest in the fridge overnight 
  2. To make the jam, mix all of the ingredients together and let it simmer on low heat for 20-30 minutes stirring now and again. Let it cool completely 
  3. To serve, you can alternate layers of jam and chia pudding or serve a large dollop of the jam over the pudding
  4. Top with your choice of nuts and/or seeds for a delicious crunch.
