Coconut Chia Pudding

Brought to you by Alicia Bevc

Chia pudding is such a simple breakfast or snack idea for work or university that you can make easily the night before.

It is filling, nutritious and rich in omega-3 fatty acids to aid cognitive function, neurotransmission, synaptic plasticity and membrane fluidity within our nervous system.

Serves 1-2


– 40g (1/4 cup) chia seeds

– 1/4 cup coconut yoghurt

– 1 tbsp flaxseed meal

– 1/2 cup coconut or soy milk

– Desired toppings (I used fresh peaches, passion fruit and pumpkin seeds)


– Combine the chia seeds, coconut yoghurt, flaxseeds and coconut milk in a bowl until well combined

– Place in the fridge for at least an hour, but preferably overnight to thicken

– Simply serve with your favourite toppings and enjoy!

About the Author

I am currently in my final year at Torrens University studying a Bachelor of Health Science (Clinical Nutrition). I have been so incredibly grateful to see so many patients in student clinic this year, and have found a deep interest/connection to the brain/nervous system and all its ailments.

Everything from of mental health, cognitive function, ADHD, addictions, alzheimers/dementia to depression, anxiety, OCD and eating disorders are so incredibly interesting to me and I would absolutely love to focus on this in my own clinic in the near future.
