2 (13.5-ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk

2 to 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup, depending on desired sweetness

1/3 cup collagen peptides (optional)

4 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup chia seeds

Fresh berries, for topping, if desired


  1. Place the coconut milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder, collagen peptides, and vanilla extract in a blender and blend until fully incorporated.
  2. Transfer the coconut milk mixture to a bowl and whisk in the chia seeds.
  3. Pour the chia seed mixture evenly into 8 4-ounce mason jars or similar-sized containers, seal the lids, and shake the containers. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. After 1 hour, shake the jars again to make sure the chia seeds don’t sink to the bottom, then place in the refrigerator and let set overnight, or for at least 3 hours.
  5. Top the chia pudding with berries and enjoy!
