To print this recipe, choose a print size:



1 cup unsweetened plant-based "milk," such as almond-cashew milk blend
3 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. flaked coconut, unsweetened, raw or lightly toasted
1 date, pitted and finely chopped, or 1 tsp. maple syrup or date syrup
3/4 cup chunks fresh apricot
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. chopped nuts (optional as garnish)


For a pudding with a tapioca-style texture, stir all ingredients together, except nuts, in a mason jar and refrigerate. For a pudding with a silky texture, combine all ingredients, except nuts, in a high-powered blender until very smooth. Pour into small bowls or wine glasses and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Top with fresh apricots and chopped nuts right before serving.

Serves 1 to 2
