Up Your Chia Pudding Game With Chai Spices & Lucuma Hero Image

Lucuma is a fruit native to Peru that can be found in powdered form. What makes this fruit extra amazing is that its flavor is reminiscent of sweet potato and maple syrup. It also contains iron and protein, making it a great addition to enhance both the taste and nutritional profile of a dish—that’s kind of the ultimate win-win, right?

Important Note: If you want to make this fabulous recipe, you’ll need to leave the chia pudding in the fridge overnight, so make sure you do that the night before!

Serves 2


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lucuma powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 clove
  • shredded coconut and cacao nibs for sprinkling (optional)


1. Blend coconut milk, ginger, lucuma, pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, and clove in a blender until combined thoroughly.

2. Combine coconut milk–lucuma mixture with chia seeds in a bowl. Stir until chia seeds are distributed evenly.

3. Pour into two glass jars and refrigerate overnight.

4. Remove chia seed puddings from refrigerator and sprinkle with shredded coconut and cacao nibs, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
