This chia pudding with figs and berries combines the creaminess of chia pudding and elevates the flavor with fresh seasonal fruit and flavor. Make it the night before or thirty minutes before you’re ready to enjoy it.
I remember making my first chia pudding. I made it the night before and grabbed it on my way to work the next morning. And well…I loved it! It made me realize just how easy it was to whip up a quick bite for busy mornings.
Chia Pudding Ingredients
This chia pudding with figs and berries is made with the following ingredients:
- Almond milk: You can use any plant milk of choice. While we use homemade almond milk for this recipe, alternatives include cashew milk and oat milk.
- Chia seeds: these superfood seeds are what bring this pudding to life. As they absorb the milk, they plump up and create and creamy texture.
- Maple syrup: To add sweetness, we use maple syrup in this recipe. Other alternatives include honey, chopped dates, or mashed banana. You can also omit sweetener completely.
- Vanilla extract: To add flavor. Omit completely if using vanilla-flavored almond milk.
- Figs: Fresh figs taste best with this chia pudding. Slice them up and add them to your chia pudding.
- Blueberries: Fresh blueberries compliment the flavor of figs to bring this chia pudding to life.
How to Make Chia Pudding with Figs and Berries
Once you have the ingredients, making the chia pudding is quick and easy:
- Prep the chia pudding: In a medium bowl, combine the almond milk, blueberries, chia seeds, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined. Let it sit for 5 minutes and whisk again. Pro-tip: Be sure to mix the ingredients a few times, otherwise, you’ll end up with clumpy chia pudding!
- Refrigerate overnight: Cover the bowl or pour the mixture into another container with a lid. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, preferably at least 6 hours or overnight.
- Serve: In the morning, stir the chia pudding and top with figs and berries.
