This blueberry coconut chia pudding is an easy, healthy dessert you can feel good about eating.

Last year at this time I was 10 days into a paleo challenge with my Crossfit box.

This year, they’re all about to embark on another one and I’m eating more carbs than I have all year. Ironically enough, I’m also stronger than I ever have been and making my way through my fitness/Crossfit goals one by one.

So yeah, the paleo challenge can kiss it this year because I have absolutely zero motivation to entertain that again.

For example, this dessert in my mind is completely healthy and good for you. It’s packed with coconut milk, chia seeds and antioxidant filled wild blueberries.

The paleo gods however, would take all my points away for the day because there’s 1 tablespoon of honey in it. Ain’t got time to live like that.

I talked a bit about resolutions on Monday in this balsamic steak stuffed portobello recipe post or more so, how I don’t do them. And while that’s true, I have been a bit more mindful of what I’m eating so far this month.

That doesn’t mean restriction in anyway, it just means more balanced choices with dessert. Yes, dessert. There’s no way I can go cold turkey on dessert and there’s really no reason anyone should in my opinion!

Winter nights are for cups of tea (specifically Trader Joe’s candy cane green tea), a piece (or 2) of dark chocolate or…chia pudding.

If you’re not someone who gets freaked out by the texture of tapioca, then I promise you can do chia pudding. If you are…well then, sorry. This probably isn’t your thing.

I love the coconut/blueberry flavor combination but really, anything is possible here. Keep the liquid to chia ratio similar and just add whatever fruits and flavorings you like!

  1. Please specify on what type of coconut milk. The one you buy in the milk section in a carton…or…the one in a can.
    Thank you!

    1. You can use either. If you use the can, just stir it so the cream and water parts are mixed well. For this recipe I used the coconut milk in a carton though.

  2. Made this last night and more than enjoyed it this morning! I used some real vanilla bean in it too! SO good! Thanks for the great recipe. 5 stars for both ease and tastiness! :)

  3. I wouldn’t say “kiss paleo goodbye” since Paleo in itself is not low-carb. To point a finger at some added honey or saying that paleo must be low-carb sounds simply absurd. The authorities, like Robb Wolf, are very clear on Paleo being carb-agnostic (if you are an active athlete with no weight-issues or other metabolic problems that would benefit from a more low-carbish approach).

    Anyway, never tried this recipe and will give it a shot. Have a nice day!


  4. I made this with unsweetened vanilla coconut milk and I really thought it was fantastic. I did not have blueberries on hand but did have frozen blackberries and they were wonderful. I’m so glad I tried this recipe, it will be added to my list of dessert recipes to use in a pinch. Thanks so much!

  5. Those little LeCreusets look familiar! I love this pudding and I’m firmly behind you, carb it up (reasonably) and own it.
