This Blueberry Kefir Chia Pudding combines two heart-healthy ingredients, kefir and chia seeds to make a delicious and flavorful dessert or snack recipe! 

I like to think that I know a lot about health foods and trends. I can tell you about the difference between chia, hemp and flax seeds, inform you on lemon water, and tell you how to pronounce quinoa. BUT that doesn’t mean that I am always learning! I was recently chatting with my friend Lee and she casually brought up kefir. I had no idea what it was but in classic Davida fashion, set out to learn everything there was to know about this new-to-me food.

What is kefir?

Kefir is basically a drinkable yogurt. It is a fermented drink, traditionally made using cow’s or goat’s milk. It contains a wide range of probiotic strains that are beneficial for gut health.

You can actually make kefir at home but I have yet to tackle that project. Find it at your local health foods store in the refrigerator section.

You can drink kefir on it’s own, swap out your liquid in smoothies for kefir and/or use kefir as the liquid in chia pudding. I’m excited to keep experimenting with this ingredient!

How to Make Kefir Chia Pudding

Start by blending the blueberries and kefir in a blender until well combined. Mix the blueberry/kefir mix with the almond milk and chia seeds in an airtight container. I love using major jars! Refrigerate for at least 6 hours (or overnight), add your toppings and enjoy!

  1. I have yet to try Kefir but one of my co-worker raves about it. I think she makes her own actually…?

  2. I’m the opposite of a food know-it all – food idiot would better describe me. So, nope, I haven’t tried kefir. The pudding looks really good though.

  3. What? I don’t know what you are talking about … know it alls, what is that? Just kidding 🙂 I’ve tried kefir because it is supposed to help digestive issues (??) but yeah, its pretty new to me too! What a great use of it! This is one gorgeous dessert … or breakfast, because I take dessert for breakfast.

  4. I’d never heard of kefir either. Learn something new everyday. 🙂 This looks delicious!!

  5. What an awesome recipe! I’ve not heard of Kiefer, but I have heard of drinkable yogurt. I want a master degree in food too! Where do we sign up? Or maybe we need to start our own program!

  6. I’ve never tried kefir before but this chia pudding is making me want to try it out! This looks very flavorful and delicious!

    I’m definitely not a food know-it-all! lol

  7. Yes and Yes :mrgreen: My mom’s actually been making her own kefir at home for -years- now, so I know all about the magic drink. I tend to avoid her version because the fermentation process kin of skeeves me out, but I do love the store-bought kind. Never tried it in puddings or smoothies though!

  8. confession time – you are not alone trying to be know it all…i do that all the time, sometimes even at restaurants when they have exotic menus. kefir is something i keep seeing on the internet and stores but havent tried it myself..need to change that.

  9. somehow i’ve never tried kefir but i always stare at it at whole foods like i’m going to buy it. it’s really fun to say too.

  10. That 50mm is doing wonders for your photosssss!!!! Hoorah for keef keef! What flavors do they have up north in Canada? My fav is the cherry or strawbs here in the south.
