Overnight Chia with Berries

Categories > Breakfast, High Protein, Vegetarian

Summer is a time for the beach, barbecues and fun in the sun. However this year with COVID-19 and mandated social distancing, the 4th of July may feel a little different. We want to help everyone feel a little more festive — and that starts with breakfast. Get into the red, white and blue spirit with this make-ahead overnight chia pudding. 

Full of antioxidants, filling, and packed with nutrients with healthy body benefits — it will quickly become a family favorite all Summer long. 

Plus, if you are hosting a party this summer, you can put the pudding in cute mason jars for easy, social distance sharing.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

4 Servings


2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup chia seeds

3 tablespoons organic maple syrup

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon Blue Spirulina powder

Toppings: Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Cherries, Coconut Whipped Cream (Optional)



  1. Combine the milk, chia seeds, blue spirulina powder, maple syrup and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir the mixture again to smooth out any chia clumps.
  4. Cover bowl tightly and let sit for 8 hours overnight.
  5. Transfer to small jars and top with strawberries, blueberries — or your other favorite toppings.


Chia is high in protein, omega-3s, and fiber.  Plus, you get an extra fiber boost with the blueberries and strawberries, so you’ll feel full and satisfied longer.
