Chia Pudding with Almond Milk – Chia seeds, wild blueberry compote and a little vanilla and cinnamon makes this chia pudding with almond milk taste like a blueberry muffin. But, without the baking or cleanup!
So, if you love blueberry muffins, then you must give this Blueberry Muffin Chia Pudding a try!
Make Chia Pudding with Almond Milk
Our family loves chia pudding — and have started to make a large batch every weekend so the first few days of the week. This makes breakfast and snack time super easy in our house. A few weeks ago, I made chia pudding with coconut milk using strawberries and vanilla extract. This time, I wanted to try making chia pudding with almond milk and wild blueberries.
The almond milk is just as good as the coconut milk. So, if you struggle with coconuts, almond milk is the perfect substitute.
How to Make Blueberry Muffin Chia Pudding with Almond Milk:
You only need a handful of ingredients to make this chia pudding with almond milk and about 20 minutes in the kitchen. For our family of 4, we double (sometimes triple) the recipe and have enough for a few days!
All you will need for this recipe is:
- 2 cups almond milk (make homemade almond milk)
- 6 tablespoons organic chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the wild blueberry compote, you just need 2 ingredients!
- 2 cups frozen wild blueberries, we love Wyman’s brand
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Lastly, we top ours with fresh, homemade Whipped Coconut Cream, a few fresh strawberries and done!

Look for Wyman’s Wild Blueberries in the Freezer Section
Every week we load our freezer with at least 1-2 bags of Wyman’s wild blueberries.
Small but mighty, wild blueberries have a very high total antioxidant capacity (ORAC). In fact, wild blueberries are higher than almost all of the typical fruits and vegetables you see at the grocery store.
Compared to cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have a considerably higher ORAC value. The higher the ORAC value of a food the more powerful that food is at slowing the aging process, fighting disease, reducing inflammation and preserving health. You can learn more about the differences here.

- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: 4 1x
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, ground cinnamon and vanilla. Whisk together for about 2 minutes. Let rest for 2 minutes and then repeat as needed until the mixture begins to thicken. Set aside.
- While waiting for the chia seeds and almond milk to fully combine, prepare the wild blueberry compote.
- In a large stock pot, add the 3 cups of frozen wild blueberries and the lemon juice over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent the wild blueberries from sticking to the base.
- Continue to stir the blueberries until they break down into a jam-like substance and the liquid evaporates, about 6-8 minutes.
- When the blueberry compote has cooled for a few minutes, then add to the chia almond milk mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
- Cover the mixing bowl and place in the fridge until it firms, about 1 hour.
*If you want to add an extra layer of wild blueberry compote on top of your single serve containers, reserve 1/4 cup.
