Lemon Curd Chia Pudding

Dessert, Misc, To Try


Zest of a large lemon or 2 small lemons

Juice of 2 large lemons

13.5 or 15 oz (400 or 445 ml) can full fat coconut milk about 1.5 cups

1/4 cup (62.5 ml) water optional

3 tbsp or more sweetener I use raw sugar

a good pinch of salt

1/4 tsp (0.25 tsp) or more turmeric

3 tbsp or more chia seeds 5 to 6 tbsp for well set pudding


Blend the lemon zest, juice, coconut milk, water, sweetener, salt and turmeric until well combined. Add chia seeds and pulse once or twice to distribute the chia seeds well.

Taste and adjust sweet and tang. Add more lemon juice or zest to taste and mix/blend in.

Pour the mixture into glasses. Chill overnight in the refrigerator. Stir once after an hour or so to distribute the chia seeds if needed.

Garnish with whipped coconut cream and lemon zest and serve.


Variation: Use lime juice and zest for Lime pudding. Use a mix of full fat and lite coconut milk for a lower fat content.

For a more set pudding use 1 tbsp more chia seeds. I like my pudding with less chia and more of the lemony coconut milk. Chia seeds take atleast overnight to hydrate and set the pudding.
