Overnight Chia with Berries

mason jar of overnight chia with berries and a spoon

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.

  • 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)


  • Combine the milk, chia seeds, blue spirulina powder, maple syrup and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Stir the mixture again to smooth out any chia clumps.
  • Cover bowl tightly and let sit for 8 hours overnight.
  • 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.
