Whip Up This Simple Apricot Chia Pudding For a Sweet Snack

Last Update: May 15, 2024

Think of this quick and easy apricot chia pudding as a healthy update to the tapioca pudding cups your mom used to throw into your school lunches. An apricot sauce lends a delicate fruitiness to the creamy coconut chia pudding base.

Apricot Chia Pudding Recipe

Yield: 2 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes


1 1/2 cups pitted fresh apricots
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup coconut water
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chopped dried apricots and pistachios, for garnish


Place fresh and dried apricots in a blender with coconut water. Blend on high until a thick, homogenous sauce forms. Evenly distribute between two glasses. Place in fridge to set.

In a large bowl, stir together coconut milk, chia seeds, honey, and vanilla until the chia seeds have released their gel and the mixture resembles a pudding. Let sit 5 minutes. Divide evenly and pour chia mixture over apricot sauce. Cover and place in fridge, 1 hour, to set.

Top with apricots and pistachios to serve.
