Vegan Berry Almond Chia Pudding [Gluten Free, Paleo]


Are chia seeds paleo? Are fruits and vegetables paleo? I am going to assume so and call this recipe paleo. My second recipe in two days and dietary restriction friendly as well!

If you’ve known me for more than two seconds, you know I’m kind of bad with time management, in the fact that I think I can accomplish more than I can in a given amount of time. Since I am constantly on the run (literally and figuratively), it’s nice for me to not worry about food sometimes. I sometimes substitute solid lunch at the office for a nutmilk blend when I’m super busy. It keeps me full the rest of the day and gives me a ton of energy.


Chia seeds are so hot right now.

I also do enjoy solid food and have been all about the chia puddings lately. I’ve been trying to eat less dairy in the afternoons and evenings (Is my life a constant “how can my nutrition be tweaked experiment”? Yes.) so chia pudding has been an alternative to my beloved Greek yogurt. Since it’s berry season, I thought subbing in Naked Juice’s new Berry Almond Nutmilk for normal almond milk would be a summery switch-up. Plus, each bottle contains 26 blueberries, 8 blackberries, 2 raspberries, 1 strawberry, 24 almonds, 1 3/4 apples and 1/3 of a banana, so basically my fruit servings for the day are taken care of in one serving.

Both the Berry Almond Nutmilk and another new Naked Juice, Peachy Almond Nutmilk, are hitting shelves early next month. I know it will be equally as good because of Naked Juice’s commitment to finding the best blends of fruits and vegetables to put in it’s bottles and deep tradition of goodness. They are both great non-dairy breakfast substitutes, post-workout refuel or mid-day snack.

This chia pudding is naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and free of added sugar while still being slightly sweet thanks to the Berry Almond Nutmilk. Plus, one bottle has 11 grams of Protein (!!!) and is a good source of both magnesium and vitamin E on top of all the health benefits of chia seeds. Uh, also this recipe has two ingredients so you’re basically crazy if you don’t make it right now.

We are on the same wavelength today, Cassie! Love the idea of using a Naked drink to make chia pudding a one-step process. Would be great for when I’m really in a pinch for time. Thanks so much for linking up with Meatless Monday today!

Love love love chia pudding! In the summer I love starting my mornings with soaked oatmeal or chia pudding. Super easy and yummy! Naked Juice is way too sweet for me but I’d love to try this recipe with some homemade nut milk/juice :)

Good spin on a classic. I usually use coconut milk, but this is a refreshing option as well.

Hi Cassie! Loving this nutmilk! It’s so thick and creamy. And you know, I’ve never made chia pudding at home. I should give this one a try. Time management? Believe it or not, I’ve got it down! :) hahahh!

This chia pudding looks so good and refreshing. I’ve fallen off the chia pudding wagon a while ago but I need to hop back on, seriously.

Such a clever use of Naked Juice! Love it. Chia pudding is great because it’s so easy but still satifies plenty of cravings.

Okay, so I’ve never made chia pudding and I’ve still never had avocado toast (ran out of time in Cali). Need to make this. Love how Naked Juice has basically revamped all of their drinks to have lower sugar and so many new types!
