When it comes to chia pudding, it is so versatile. In this chia pudding, I used grapefruit, yogurt, grapes and honeydew melon keeping the pudding cool and refreshing. The maple glazed walnuts add a nice crunchy texture to the lightly sweetened pudding. If you feel creative choose your layers and toppings, it is so much fun. Kids especially love to create their pudding by adding bananas, raisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter or ice cream


  • 2 cups cashew, almond or coconut milk
  • 5 Tbsp. GF chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1 tsp. maca powder (optional)
  • ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp. butter or coconut oil
  • LAYERS; 1 cup full fat Greek plain yogurt. 1 cup halved grapes, 1 cup sliced honeydew melon, 4 grapefruit segments
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
