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. Can you believe I’ve never had kefir? But my grandparents have because they are trendier than me. I’m just scared of it I think. Same with miso. But I loveeeee chia pudding so maybe I need to buy a bottle!

  2. I’ve yet to try kefir, but I hear all sorts of delicious things, including that it pairs incredibly well with granola.

  3. I’ve sorta known what kefir is, but I’ve always been intimidated to try it. I don’t know why though, because I’m obviously a yogurt freak. I’m drooling over this chia pudding already, so I’d probably be a fan!!

  4. hehehe, I’m totally the same way about food knowledge! I did know what kefir was, but I think you have me beat on the distinctions/benefits of chia vs flax vs. hemp 😉 I love the tanginess of kefir though, so I know this pudding must be awesome!

  5. Hehehe you are too funny… I am so with you, if you find a Masters program for foodies, please let me know!!

  6. I haven’t tried kefir yet. And I like knowing everything as well. I’ll fake it then look it up later on the sly. My husband, on the other hand, is never afraid to ask any question of anyone. Sometimes he’ll ask me something random while he’s sitting at his computer, and that’s the only time I’m like, “you’re right there! Just google it!”

  7. Okeeee wait. I’ve never tried kefir. Can we still be besties?!! I already know the answer to that. Regardless, I want to faceplant into this beautiful blueberry concoction!!!

  8. I’ve heard of and seen it, but I’ve never tried it. I generally prefer to eat my food. 😉

  9. You know I’m a big lover of kefir! It seriously does magical things for my digestive system.

  10. Oooo I have never tried kefir before! And you are giving me a great excuse to get some on my next market run! And confession: I def didn’t know what kefir was until like a month ago? There’s always so many new health fads popping up, it can be hard to stay up to date! Pinning this kefir deliciousness for sure!
