These Acai Chia Pudding “bowls” are perfect for those days when you want to slow down and enjoy an Açai Bowl, but just don’t have the time! Made with only 5 plant-based ingredients, the Açai-Chia pudding base is perfect for on-the-go, and sweetened naturally with fruit.

While I love a good Açai bowl, my mornings are usually pretty busy. I just don’t have the patience nor the time to sit down and enjoy a melty smoothie bowl! That’s when I got the idea for these Açai Chia Pudding “bowls.” They still have a thick and creamy Açai base (that can be enjoyed both cold and warm), but are much more portable and easy to prep ahead of time.

You can still top them like normal Açai bowls too! I decided to go the classic route of Granola with Fresh Fruit. Plus some Cacao Nibs…because I’m obsessed.

An added bonus? Chia Pudding is much more filling! I tend to digest Smoothie Bowls quickly and feel hungry almost right after I eat one. Chia Seeds, however, are full of FiberHealthy Fats, and Plant-Based Protein. They help to keep me full and satisfied until lunchtime.

You only need Chia Seeds, Açai Powder, Non-Dairy Milk, Blueberries, and Medjool Dates to make the Açai-Chia Pudding! I opted to use Dates instead of Maple Syrup for this recipe, so it’s entirely sweetened with fruit. Just add them to your blender with the Non-Dairy Milk and process until smooth! I actually made the entire Chia Pudding in my blender as well, to save time and dishes.

Also, I used Sunfood’s Organic Açai-Maqui Bowl Mix to flavor my Chia Pudding. Not only does it have all of the great antioxidants and Flavor from Açai, but it also has some extra added goodness from Maqui, Lucuma, and Maca Powders! Talk about an all-in-one superfood 😉

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • This recipe is perfect for Meal Prep! Simply portion out your Chia Pudding into smaller jars, and keep in your fridge. It’ll stay fresh for up to 7 days, so it’s great for the school or work week.
  • If you do not have access to Medjool Dates, I’ve also included substitutions for Maple Syrup or Banana sweeteners in the notes below.
  • Don’t like the texture of Chia Seeds? Simply blend the entire Chia Seed Pudding after it sets to get a smooth and creamy consistency. As you can see in the photo below, you’d never guess the blended Açai “Bowl” (right) was made from Chia!

  1. First, add the pitted Dates and Non-Dairy Milk to a high-speed Blender and blend on high until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the Blender and pulse or blend on low until everything is well incorporated. Let sit for 5 minutes, then blend again – the “pudding” should be noticeably thicker. If you do not have a Blender with variable settings, you can also transfer everything to a bowl and whisk by hand.
  3. Transfer the Chia Pudding into jars, and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. I layered my Acai Chia Bowls with 2 tbsp of Granola + Fruit on the bottom, plus more Fruit, Granola, and Cacao Nibs on top!


  • Sweetener Alternatives: If you don’t want to use Medjool Dates, feel free to blend in 1 ripe Banana or 2 tbsp of Maple Syrup.
  • Texture Hack: If you don’t like the final “crunchy” texture of Chia Seeds, return the thickened pudding to your blender and process until smooth and creamy!

  1. Hi, can I use anything else to replace the acai powder? I have peanut butter powder – would it work?

    1. Peanut butter powder would really change the consistency where acai powder would be for the flavor, wouldn’t recommend swapping it out as it’s a main ingredient! Otherwise it kind of becomes a completely different thing!

    1. Thanks so much! We don’t calculate calories for the recipes but if you’re interested there are some calculators available online.
