Prep Time
20 min
45 min


  • 1 13.5-oz BPA-free can full-fat coconut milk
  • ⅔ cup chia seeds, divided (Try: Navitas Organics Organic Chia Seeds)
  • 20 drops liquid monk fruit sweetener, divided
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 10-oz bag frozen mixed berries, thawed
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Prepare chia pudding: In a medium bowl, combine coconut milk, one-half of chia seeds, one-half of monk fruit, vanilla and salt. Stir to mix well. Cover and refrigerate until thickened, at least 4 hours. (Note: Check after an hour to make sure seeds aren’t clumping at the bottom; if so, stir to redistribute.)
  2. Prepare berry mixture: In a small saucepan, combine berries, orange juice, water and remaining one-half of monk fruit. Bring to a simmer on medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until berries are juicy and have softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Mash with a fork, then transfer to a bowl and stir in remaining one-half of chia seeds. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer half of each mixture to a food processor and process until combined.
  4. Divide pudding-berry mixture from processor among 4 small bowls or parfait glasses. Divide remaining chia pudding over first layer, spreading evenly. Divide remaining berry mixture over top of each bowl. Cover and chill before serving.
