Vegan Mofo: HOT! Cranberry Orange Chia Breakfast Pudding

My faithful reader, Cristina, asked if I ever did the breakfast chia pudding warm. Nope, but boy that sounded super yummy so I had to give it a try! Instead of (or in addition to!) cranberries, you could use raisins and add bananas! Yum!

HOT! Cranberry Orange Chia Breakfast Pudding Recipe (vegan)


  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk from a carton
  • 2-3 TB chia seeds (The more you use, the thicker the pudding will be.)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 TB chopped, dried cranberries (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • dash cinnamon
  • 1/2-1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 TB chopped nuts (I used dry roasted pecans.)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk, chia seeds, vanilla, cranberries, orange zest, and cinnamon until it boils. Let simmer, uncovered, for about 10-15 minutes. Give it a stir every few minutes so it does not stick to the pan.
  2. Let cool for a few minutes.
  3. Top with maple syrup, nuts, and cranberries.

  1. I bet that is delicious warm. I've only ever had cold chia pudding, and I'm not so sure how I feel about it cold. Its tasty. And I like the texture. But the cold temperature and the texture ... not so much.


I love comments! Thanks for saying hi!
