Creamy Blueberry Overnight Pudding

Categories Breakfast, Featured, Recipes

Hey everyone, last week I posted this photo on Instagram, the caption said it was warming up and I was enjoying overnight recipes again. Fast forward a few days and it’s now –3 again and snowing, in March, again. So, this may not be the most relevant thing I could post today, but this creamy blueberry dish is my new favourite breakfast. I say blueberry, the photo is of a blueberry one but I’ve also made it with cherries and raspberries which is equally as delicious.  

This breakfast comes in three parts then they all get layered nicely in a jar. The layers consist of a vanilla and almond chia pudding, a layer of dairy free yoghurt and a fruit compote layer.  

I usually make my chia pudding to the ratio of 1tbsp chia seed per 80ml milk. As I need this one to be thicker to hold the weight of the other layers I’m using 1tbsp chia seed per 50ml milk.  

This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, vegan and contains no added sugars.  

Ingredients 

250g dairy free yoghurt 

Chia Pudding:  

  • 4tbsp chia seeds 
  • 200ml almond milk 
  • 1tsp ground almonds  
  • 1tsp vanilla  
  • 1tbsp flaked almonds (optional) 

Compote: 

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries (or fruit of choice) 

Method 

Chia Pudding: 

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl or jar, stir thoroughly then leave in fridge overnight or at least four hours 

Compote: 

  1. Heat blueberries in a small saucepan on a low heat. If you’re not using frozen berries, add 3tbsp water as well.  
  2. Leave to simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  3. As it starts to thicken up, mash blueberries slightly with a fork, leaving some texture.  
  4. Set aside, leave in a bowl in fridge until cool. 

Assembling Jar: 

  1. Place about a third of the chia pudding in the bottom of the jar as the base layer.  
  2. Proceed to layer the three ingredients on top of one another until the jar is full and/or you run out of mixture.  
  3. Add some fresh fruit or nuts to the top layer to serve.  

Enjoy! 

Until next time,  

Sophie

    1. Thank you! I made it the other day with only 3tbsp chia and I believe my cronometer said the recipe was about 350 so it would be around 400 for 4tbsp. You could make the serving smaller if you wanted less calories. This jar is quite big so it actually makes a fairly large serving x

  1. I’ve always wanted to try overnight breakfasts but they all seem to be oat-based, but I love this alternative! Will definitely be trying it out!

  2. This looks amazing! I never know what I feel like for breakfast but this looks like something I’d definitely be keen to eat in the mornings. I also love berries so this sounds delicious!

  3. I will have to try this at least once since I see similar recipes all the time. And I’m always tired in the morning so this could be a saver! I’ll bookmark this so I can try it when I have the ingredients :)!

  4. Bloody hell this sounds amazing! I love the sound of doing it with cherry too, cherry is my absolute favourite along with lime and raspberry! Vanilla Chai sounds super tasty and I bet it’s so beautifully creamy with a sharp fruity cut through. NEED to make this!

  6. I’ve never tried making something overnight like this but it seems very interesting! It looks super tasty too

  7. I’m incorporating chia seeds into my diet very consciously now because of the many health benefits it offers. A pudding with chia seeds and almond milk would be great for my acidity issues.

  8. This is a great recipe Sophie! I’d definitely try making this with raspberries or strawberries. It looks like a great pudding or breakfast for spring and summer x

  9. That looks so yummy and filling! Would be perfect on a warmer day too (fingers crossed that is the last of the snow for a long while).
    Think I will have a go at making this 🙂

  10. I always think that these types of breakfasts look so nice but I just can’t bring myself to try them! I just stick to my toast/bacon sandwich! Your photos look lovely 🙂

  11. This looks delicious and probably easy enough even for me to try it 🙂 I love the idea of cherries, I’m not a huge fan of blueberries (although Flora is) and I find raspberries tend to squish too easily (or maybe I’m just too rough?). Thank you for sharing- and gorgeous photos as always xx

  12. I wish you had the “like” button, I just want to go on a liking spree on all your recipes! This sounds like a great source of protein. I would’ve never thought to make this tbh but it looks like something I’d berry much enjoy! Thanks for another breakfast option for me

  13. I reaaaaally need to make an overnight pudding of some sort soon! I’ve been putting chia seeds in smoothies but still haven’t made a chia pudding. Will be sure to try this when I do xx
