With all the holidays and 3-day weekends coming up, what better way to celebrate than with this colorful fresh Chocolate Chia Pudding Pie containing coconut and berries!
When it comes to dinner parties, potlucks, or picnics, I typically make an appetizer or main dish to share. But with our crazy summer days, ‘what to bring’ is sometimes the last thing I want to think about. Especially on the weekend when I’m feeling lazier in the kitchen.
If time is an issue, most people usually have their staples of favorite quick and easy dishes. Or ready-to-go store bought appetizers come in handy. But, if possible I always prefer to bring something homemade.
And now with this Chocolate Chia Pudding Fruit Pie of mine, ‘home-made’ is definitely a no-brainier!
Why This Chocolate Chia Pudding Pie Is Perfect For A Potluck
This Pie came about when I was thinking about just that…what to bring to a friend’s house for a dinner party.

My typical go-to dessert at home is this Fresh Mango Chia Coconut Pudding Parfait, using any fruit I have available. Everyone loves it. So I thought why not create a fun twist based on that original recipe!
I turned it into a chocolate version for the filling, with shredded coconut, covered the entire pie with all sorts of colorful berries, and topped it with chopped dark chocolate. It looked beautiful!
The best part is that this no-bake dessert works well as a single serving or turned into an easy chocolate pie recipe that’s easy to share!

Whether it's during the summer, the holidays, a potluck, or a weeknight...this 7-ingredient Chocolate Chia Pudding Pie requires only 10-minutes of prep, is vegan, no-bake, quick and easy, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free!
- 3 14-oz. can coconut milk lite or full-fat, both will work (see notes)
- 18 tbsp chia seeds
- 15 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 cup pure maple syrup , adjust amt. depending on preferred sweetness
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 pinches fine sea salt
- fresh berries , stawberries, rasperberries, blueberries, blackberries, diced and chilled
- vegan dark chocolate or chocolate chips , chopped
In a bowl, combine the coconut milk, chia seeds, shredded coconut, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Whisk until well combined.
Let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
Mix once more, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (for best results, refrigerate overnight).
Once the pudding is done, remove from the fridge, mix thoroughly once more, and evenly pour out into a round glass pie dish or single serving dishes.
Cover the top completely with freshly diced mixed berries. Top with some chopped dark chocolate and/or shredded coconut. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
If you made a pie, to serve, simply scoop out the pudding into bowls using a large spatula or spoon.
Nutrition and serving information is for making one large round pie. This serving size is slightly smaller than if you made individual smaller servings of this pie (10 individual size servings depending on size).
Measurements - For your reference, 4 tbsp = 1/4 cup. The amount of chia seeds and shredded coconut is in tablespoons because the optimal amount did not round to a convienent cup measurement.
Coconut Milk - I've tried many brands of coconut milk. Trader Joe's lite coconut milk does not work well with chia pudding. I recommend using Thai Kitchen lite coconut milk.
Toppings - This chia pudding tastes great topped with fresh berries, coconut, and dark chocolate. But feel free to add any toppings of choice such as hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, chopped nuts, granola, etc.
