Tips & Tricks
We love serving this pudding-like, fruity treat in pretty glasses or jars for a light breakfast or snack. It's so pretty, it feels like you're dining in a fancy cafe.
The results will be far richer, but you could use cashew cream instead of tofu or yogurt to make this soy-free. Be sure to prepare it to the consistency of yogurt by adding extra water, if needed. It must be super smooth!
Adjust the quantity of extra sugar, to your own taste. You could also simply use more maple syrup instead of adding any sugar.
Regular chia seeds are okay to use, but white chia seeds make for a prettier result.

Raspberry Chia Breakfast Jars
- 12 ounces frozen raspberries thawed but not drained
- 12 ounces soft silken tofu or unsweetened plain vegan yogurt
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons maple sugar or light brown sugar optional
- ¼ cup white chia seeds
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 6 ounces fresh berries raspberries or blueberries, rinsed and thoroughly drained
- Place the thawed raspberries in a blender or use an immersion blender to blend the berries until smooth. If you don’t like berry seeds, pass the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve.
- Add the tofu or yogurt, maple syrup, and sugar to the berries and blend again until smooth. Place into a large bowl.
- Stir the chia seeds and vanilla into the mixture. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight. Stir before serving.
- Place a few of the fresh berries at the bottom of the serving dish. (You can also stir the berries directly into the mixture, keeping a few for garnishing.)
- Divide the chia preparation on top and sprinkle with the remaining berries. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
