Cake Batter Chia Pudding

Do you lick the batter off the spoon? If you said yes, then our Cake Batter Chia Pudding is the perfect dessert for you! With chia seeds soaked in kefir and whipped coconut kefir, each spoonful is a cake lover’s heaven. This may be a sweet treat, but the superfoods in this recipe pack it with protein, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and prebiotic fiber to fuel the 12 live and active probiotic cultures in our kefir.

Your Gut Matters

Eating habits also play a role in mental health. Research has shown that probiotic-rich foods decrease anxiety and boost the mood. That makes kefir a great wellbeing tool because it contains 12 live and probiotic cultures. Psychiatrist James Greenblatt explained that “‘the gut is really your second brain. There are more neurons in the GI tract than anywhere else except the brain.’” As research continues to develop, it’s becoming more and more apparent that there is a link between the gut and the brain. What was once suspected as one-way communication (brain to gut) is now understood to be more of a two-way system. Thus, the health of our gut may directly impact the health of our minds.

Servings: 1 - 2


  1. Chia Pudding:
  2. Stir chia seeds with the vanilla kefir in a bowl and add the dates, almond butter, and oats. Cover and place in the fridge for at 3-4 hours.
  3. Scoop the mixture in your blender with the cacao nibs, vanilla, add another splash of kefir and blend until fully smooth and creamy.
  4. Refrigerate in a sealed container until chilled. The pudding will thicken a bit more as it sits.
  5. Whipped Coconut Kefir:
  6. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape off the solid white layer and place that in a mixing bowl (you can discard the rest of the water from the can or use it another time). Beat the coconut cream with maple syrup, plain whole milk kefir, and vanilla extract. Chill until ready to use and whisk before serving.
  7. Top the chia seed pudding with the coconut whipped kefir and a sprinkling of cacao.
