Single jar of PB&J chia pudding which is layered with smashed blackberries for the jam and creamy peanut butter chia for the chia pudding recipe.

PB&J Chia Pudding

The combination of peanut butter and jelly, all wrapped up in a decadent PB&J Chia Pudding recipe.  Sweet mashed blackberries make up the jam and then it's topped with creamy peanut butter.  My fave chia pudding recipe!

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup blackberries, plus more for topping


  1. Add the chia seeds, pure maple syrup, pure vanilla extract, and unsweetened coconut milk to a mixing bowl.
  2. Stir this all together and place in the fridge to set. It’s ready to go in just about 30 minutes, but you could leave it overnight if you want.
  3. Remove it from the fridge and stir it together. You can see the chia seeds have formed a gel and the mixture is thicker, more like a pudding.
  4. To make the jam portion, mash the fresh blackberries using a fork or a potato masher until they’re pretty fully mashed. Then set aside.

  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the prepared vanilla chia pudding with some natural peanut butter and stir to combine.
  6. Add the blackberry puree to the bottom of a jar, and then top that with the peanut butter chia pudding all the way to the top. To serve, I like to add a little more peanut butter and some fresh blackberries.
