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)


What’s great about smoothies is that they’re quick to make — perfect for those days when you don’t have time to make yourself a healthy breakfast.

Serves 1


  • handful of kale (stalks removed)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon spirulina

These are the perfect pick-me-up treats to have stored in the freezer and contain a range of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants.

Serves 6


  • 3/4 Bar 70%+ dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 banana, diced
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. shredded coconut
  • pinch of sea salt


One unassuming little fruit that packs a big nutritional punch is the blueberry. It’s bursting with nutrients and anti-aging benefits. Rich in fiber, minerals, and the vitamins A, C, E & K, fresh blueberries are lower on the glycemic index than many fruits, and also offer a good dose of fiber — both of which are helpful in managing blood sugar.

  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 big handful of kale or spinach
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • ¼ cup of blueberries
  • 1/3 of a banana
  • ice as desired
