Sugar Free Chia Breakfast Pudding


(AKA Shrek Brek)

Deceptively filling breakfast pot, with protein, fibre, antioxidants and omega 3..these tiny little seeds really do pack a nutritional punch.

We use a mix of white and black chia seeds..that is purely a personal aesthetic thing as I don’t find the grey pudding that all black seed creates all that appealing.

You could easily make up the whole breakfast pudding the night before for a grab and go breakfast..but… these little seeds will soak up liquid with an exponential thirst, meaning that you will need to add more liquid before eating to loosen up the mix.

On detox retreat I like to up the nutritional density of these breakfast pots and so I add a small handful of fresh baby spinach…hence the nick name Shrek Brek.

Shrek Brek chia-seed-2

Serves 2
  • 1/4 Cup Black Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup White Chia Seeds
  • 2 Cup Coconut Water
  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp Organic Soy Yoghurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 20 gms coconut Flakes
  • 10 gms flaked almonds
  • optional 1 small handful baby spinach


Start the night before.

Mix the chia seeds, coconut water and ½ cup still water in a bowl, cover and pop in the fridge over night.

The next morning bring the chia seed mix out and allow to stand at room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients.

In a blender mix the milk , vanilla and yoghurt, and spinach if using then add this blended mix to your chia seed mix and stir thoroughly. You may want or need to add a little extra still water now to get the consistency that you like.

Meanwhile in a dry frying pan gently toast the coconut flakes and almonds.

When ready to serve spoon the chia pudding into a glass and top with a splodge of soy yoghurt and the toasted nuts.

  1. This is SO GOOD (especially with pistachios and cherry compote) but I find this quantity makes about four portions? More than happy to eat the lot in two sittings if it’s definitely two servings though!!
