  • 1/2 cup raspberry yogurt (I used Glenilen Farm Raspberry Yoghurt)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 handful chocolate granola (use your favorite brand)
  • 1 handful raspberries
  • additional yogurt - for topping (if desired) (you can use a plain yogurt if you want to reduce the total amount of sugar)


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt and milk. Stir in the chia seeds. Cover and set in the refrigerator overnight. If you can, stir the chia seed mixture a couple times after putting it in the refrigerator (after 30 minutes, after 1 hour). It is not necessary (ie. if you go to sleep), but it will help prevent clumps.
  • In the morning, give the chia seed pudding a good mix, breaking apart any clumps.
  • Stir in another spoonful or two of yogurt, if desired. Spoon into two bowls, or into reserved yogurt containers. Top with your favorite chocolate granola and a few fresh raspberries. 


If you use an individual pot of Glenilen Farm Raspberry Yoghurt, you will use the entire pot. To save time on measuring the milk, you can use the empty glass container. The amount of milk will be just about one full jar of milk.
