Chia pods are so simple to make, they can be made with any milks to suit any type of dietary need.  I love using a combination of coconut milk and cashew milk….yum! And I really like soaking them overnight, I love the thickness that overnight soaking produces.

I love berries with my chia pods in the morning.

The kids love theirs with a swirl of organic maple syrup.


Chia Pods
Recipe Type: Paleo Breakfast
Author: Jess Rath
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 4
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup of nut milk (I love cashew)
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Mesquite powder (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon of sweetener (optional, or 1/3 dropper of liquid stevia)
  1. Place all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and whisk.
  2. Let the mixture sit on the bench for 5 minutes and whisk again, repeat after another 5 minutes.
  3. After the third whisking (this avoids clumps and makes sure that the mixture is fully combined) place the bowl in the refrigerator, covered.
  4. Chia pods are ready to be eaten within 30 minutes, but overnight soaking produces a thicker consistency.
  5. You can add fruit puree, a mashed banana, maple syrup or whatever flavour combos you like.
