Breakfast on the go just got a whole lot better. These easy raspberry lime overnight chia puddings make a delicious breakfast, snack, or even dessert with some whipped cream! YUM.
Did anyone else have raspberry lime rickey’s growing up?! My dad loved them and they still remind me of summer and going out to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. I made these raspberry lime chia puddings with that drink in mind. They’re sweet with a subtle tang and super easy to make. I’m going to be eating this overnight chia pudding allll summer long.
Why is chia seed pudding good for you?
Chia seeds are an amazing little seed that seriously pack a nutritional punch. They are high in fiber and plant based protein, and contain a significant amount of zinc, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids (source). Chia puddings are one of my favorite on the go breakfasts because they’re easy, delicious, and surprisingly filling. The protein and fiber content of the chia seeds will keep you full through the morning.
How long does chia pudding take to thicken and how do you make it?
I generally make chia pudding at night before I go to bed so that it’s ready to go when I wake up. If you forget, however, you can make it in the morning or as a mid-day snack and let it sit for about an hour to thicken. All in all, chia pudding takes about 5 minutes to prep and will last in the fridge for about 5 days. There are SO many different ways to make it, so feel free to get creative. This lime and raspberry chia pudding is fresh, light, and perfect for summer.
To make this chia pudding: All you need to do is combine the 2 cups of almond milk (or any non-dairy milk), fresh raspberries, 1-2 dates, the juice from 1 lime and a splash of vanilla in a blender. This will be our raspberry milk that we then will soak with the chia seeds to make the chia pudding. After the milk has been made, add it to a large bowl, container, or jar with 1/4 cup chia seeds. Let sit for at least 1 hour or ideally overnight. This mixture will make 4 servings, so feel free to adjust as needed. I suggest always using a 1:4 ratio of chia to liquid to get the best result.

This raspberry lime chia pudding recipe is the perfect on the go breakfast.
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 2 cups milk
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 2 pitted medjool dates OR 2 tbsp maple syrup/honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Juice from 1 lime
- Make the raspberry lime “milk” by blending the almond milk, fresh raspberries, lime juice, vanilla, and dates or maple syrup.
- Process until smooth.
- Add to a bowl, jar, or container with the chia seeds and mix well.
- Cover and let sit overnight or for at least 1 hour to thicken.

You can likely use frozen raspberries in place of fresh, but I would cut the amount in half so the milk doesn’t get too thick.
