5-6 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp hemp seeds

1 tbsp Grade A maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)

1/2 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries

A pinch of Celtic sea salt

*optional: 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

*optional garnish: coconut whip cream, coconut flakes


  1. Blend coconut milk, blueberries, maple syrup and vanilla (if using) . Pour mix into medium bowl, combining with chia seeds and hemp seeds. Stir well to ensure the seeds are evenly distributed and not clumping together.
  2. Place in fridge to set for minimum 15 minutes. Check for preferred consistency and taste. Stir in more maple syrup to sweeten it and if it is too thick add a little bit of coconut milk at a time and if too thin add another 1/2 tbsp of chia seeds, stir and place back in fridge for another 15 min.
  3. Serve in individual bowls and garnish with fresh blueberries and optional dollop of sweetened coconut whip cream and coconut flakes.

Tip:  *select Organic for some of all ingredients.  If blended blueberries and coconut milk gets too thick add a little additional coconut milk at a time.

Benefits of Chia Seeds and Hemp Seeds

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are tiny but mighty. They are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain health and reducing inflammation. They are also high in fiber, aiding in digestion and helping you feel full longer.

Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds are a complete source of protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. They are also rich in healthy fats, particularly omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are crucial for maintaining heart health and reducing inflammation.

Why Coconut Milk?

Coconut milk is a fantastic dairy-free alternative that is rich and creamy, providing a perfect base for chia pudding. It is also high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are beneficial fats that can boost energy levels and support metabolism. Select brands without any added thicken agents such as guar gum or carrageenan as those can irritate gut health along with histamines.

Blueberries for Antioxidants

Blueberries are known for their high antioxidant content, which helps combat oxidative stress and supports overall health. They are also a great source of vitamins C and K, fiber, and various phytonutrients.
