Chia Pudding & Vanilla Smoothie Layered Breakfast Pot

Chia pudding is ridiculously easy to make and an ideal choice for those busy mornings where you just want to grab something nutritious and go. Here's how I make it followed by my layered breakfast pot using both a simple smoothie and chia pudding in one super tasty meal!

The awesome thing about chia seed pudding is that the recipe is so versatile and lends itself to a variety of diets, tastes and culinary creativity. You can make it with nearly any milk including vegan and homemade types such as cashew, almond, or coconut.

Since the pudding itself is quite bland without flavourings or sweetener, this simple recipe works as the perfect wholefood base for chia pudding breakfast or dessert recipes. The flavour of homemade puree, compote and fresh fruits, raw sweeteners and even superfood powders works well to flavour the jelly-like seeds. You can even blend the basic chia pudding into a super creamy texture if you are not a fan of the jelly-like seeds in puddings.

To get you started here is my basic chia recipe. Adapt it as you see fit...

Basic Chia Seed Pudding Recipe


  • 3 tablespoons chai seeds, white or black

  • 250ml plantbased or dairy milk

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp Dutch cinnamon, ground

  • 1-2 tsp raw honey or maple syrup (optional)

Add all the ingredients into a 300ml mason jar. Whisk well to ensure the chis seeds do not clump (can be impossible to separate otherwise). Add the lid and store in fridge overnight (or for 2 hours) to set. In the morning top with a blob of your favourite yoghurt, fresh berries, a spoonful of wholegrain granola plus nuts and seeds. Delicious!

Nothing beats a smoothie for a super fast and easy nourishing meal. They are made in a matter of seconds and provide your body with all the nutrients you need to kick off your morning with natural energy and wholefood nutrition. But I love mixing them with chia pudding to make a super filling, high fibre meal like this Vanilla Bliss Breakfast smoothie that is almost like a dessert.

Vanilla Bliss Breakfast Smoothie


  • 250ml milk (I use coconut milk)

  • 1/4 cup cooked rice or cauliflower, cooled

  • 1-2 scoop of Vanilla protein powder

  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp maple syrup or 2 drops stevia

Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender and serve in a mason jar in between layers of chia pudding and fruit. Top with your favourite crunchy granola topping.
