(1) I love throwing them in smoothies, using them in baked goods, adding them to my granola, or mixing them into coconut yogurt. But my favorite way to eat them is chia pudding! One of the most unique qualities of chia seeds is their ability to absorb liquid and “gel up” or thicken the liquid mixture into a pudding consistency. (2) Chia puddings are a great way to pack ingredients you love into a nutritious breakfast or snack. Using Vanilla Cloud is ultra  convenient for this purpose because it’s a nice blend of cold pressured almond and coconut milks already spiced and sweetened in just the right ratio so you can cut down the amount of ingredients you need to add!


Vanilla Cloud Chia Pudding


  • ½ bottle Suja Vanilla Cloud
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional if you want an extra vanilla flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut OIl


Mix all ingredients except the coconut oil in a bowl and stir well, making sure the chia seeds don’t clump. Place the bowl in the fridge overnight to allow to gel up with the Vanilla Cloud and form a pudding. Enjoy as is or add fresh fruit or extra coconut shreds to garnish.
