Vegan Layered Blueberry Chia Pudding 

Prep Time: 15 minutes (active), plus at least 2 hours for chilling.
Servings: Makes approximately 2-3 servings in 8 oz cups.


  1. 1/4 cup chia seeds
  2. 1 cup unsweetened soy milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
  3. 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  4. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1 cup vegan yogurt (unsweetened or vanilla-flavored)
  6. 1/2 cup fresh blueberries (for mixing with yogurt)
  7. 1/2 cup fresh blueberries (for topping)


  1. Prepare Chia Pudding: In a bowl, mix the chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes, then stir again to prevent any clumping. Our functional medicine Los Angeles providers suggest covering and refrigerating for at least 2 hours or overnight until it thickens into a pudding consistency.
  2. Prepare Blueberry-Yogurt Mix: Blend half of the blueberries into the vegan yogurt. Our functional medicine Burbank specialists propose blending it until it has reached your desired consistency.
  3. Assemble the Puddings: Start with a layer of the blueberry yogurt mixture at the bottom of each cup, followed by a layer of chia pudding. Our functional medicine Studio City doctors highly recommend finishing with a topping of fresh blueberries.
