This recipe is SUPER simple and makes for a perfect ‘on-the-go’ breakfast or even a quick snack/dessert. It’s thick, creamy, tangy, and packed with nutrients.

I personally love and tolerate dairy very well but I know some people are more sensitive to it than others. Kefir is generally a great alternative for those who are lactose intolerant and it typically contains a wider variety of beneficial bacteria and yeasts compared to ‘normal’ yogurt.

And if you want to take it up another notch, goat milk kefir is also a great option because the average size of fat globules in goat milk is smaller than in cow’s milk making it even easier on digestion. This forms a smaller, softer curd in the stomach and allows it to be more rapidly broken down by stomach enzymes.



  • For the Chia Pudding
    • 1/2 cup (120 mL or 4 fl oz) Kefir or Goat Milk Kefir
    • 1 tablespoon (13g) chia seeds
  • Toppings (Optional)
    • Blueberries
    • Pecans
    • Cacao Nibs


  1. In a small bowl, add Kefir and chia seeds. Mix until well combined.
  2. Place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (preferably overnight) until thickened.
  3. Add toppings of choice and enjoy!


I love the taste of this kefir on its own, but you can always stir in your favorite protein powder or dash of sweetener to give it a bit more flavor. I'd recommend Perfect Keto Chocolate Collagen or Whey Protein Powder.
