  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk {or any dairy/non-diary milk}
  • 9 tablespoons chia seeds {i.e. white chia seeds}
  • 2 "ginger tea" bags {i.e. Pukka Three Ginger herbal tea}
  • 2 matcha green tea bags {i.e. The Republic of Tea Double Green Matcha Tea}
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod sliced open OR 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk {i.e. Native Forest canned} or other dairy/non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • 2 cups cut up fresh strawberries and/or fresh mango


  • Pour almond milk in to a medium sized sauce pan, the add tea bags and sliced open vanilla bean {if using} to the pan. Heat on high until boiling, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 or more minutes, depending upon how strong you want the tea/milk base.
  • While the milk and tea are infusing, add 9 tablespoons chia seeds to a medium sized jar, along with cold coconut milk, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. If you aren't using a vanilla bean, add vanilla extract as well.
  • When the infused tea/milk is ready, pour it in to the jar with the other ingredients {be careful since the mixture will be hot}, place the lid to the jar on tightly,and shake well to combine ingredients. You will also want to remove the lid from the jar, and stir the seeds with a fork to remove any clumps.
  • Let sit for ~ 10 minutes for warm pudding, then top w/ strawberries and/or mango, OR refrigerate for ~ 2 hours to allow to cool before serving, then top with fruit.


The total time is approximate based on whether you prefer warm or cold pudding. Warm pudding will be ready ~ 10 minutes after combining the ingredients in the jar, but if you prefer cold pudding, refrigerate for ~ 2hours before serving. For future reference, if you choose to make chia pudding without heating the liquid first, allow ~ 4 hours to thicken in the refrigerator.
