Raw Orange Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

I have been having a craving for oranges lately. Big juicy oranges. Maybe it is because we are actually starting to get hints of spring, or maybe because I just need some citrus. I also was longing for some new and interesting breakfast ideas. It’s been a long winter! I bought a big bag of oranges and put together this raw food recipe for Orange Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding. It’s a hit. Honestly, you could eat it any time of the day but it made a beautiful breakfast for me this morning. I topped this with the granola recipe from Rawmazing Transitional Foods.




Orange Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding


  • 1/4 cup almonds, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 dates, softened with pits removed
  • 3 oranges
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • Granola for topping if desired (from Raw Transitions)
  1. Place almonds and water in high-speed blender. Process until well blended.
  2. Remove to nut milk bag and strain.
  3. Place almond milk back in blender with dates. Blend until very smooth.
  4. Remove the zest from one orange and add to the almond milk date mixture. Segment the insides of the orange and set aside.
  5. Juice the two remaining oranges. Add juice (aproximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup) to the almond milk and zest. Stir.
  6. Add chia seeds, stir. Let set for 20 minutes.
  7. Stir in orange sections that you set aside.

      Hi, Annette, Since none of the on-line nutritional info calculators that are online and most websites use are not accurate, I do not use them. Cheers!

    regarding your raw orange chia seed breakfast pudding :-)
    I don’t know what a nut milk bag is? Though I feel sheepish for not knowing can you explain?
    Thank you so much

      It is a mesh bag that you strain the nut pulp out of the nut milk with. We carry them in the Rawmazing store. Cheers!

    Just made this and it is delicious. I didn’t have peas so I hooped a big handful of cilantro and it still tasted great. Thanks!!!

    I would like permission, please, to include some of your recipes in an e-book I am making in raw food diet and recipes. I would of course, indicate where I got the recipe and accompanying photo.

    I just bought your great dessert book. Are all of the recipes on your site in your Rawmazing: Over 130 Simple Raw Recipes for Radiant Health?

    I made this for breakfast this morning and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it all day. Can’t wait to make it again. It’s so easy. The couple of times I’ve given my husband chia pudding he hasn’t liked it but this recipe won him over. Thanks Susan!

    Hello from New Zealand, Firstly I’d like to thank you Susan for all the hours you pour into your amazing recipes. I’ve yet to find one that doesn’t work out and I don’t believe that will happen. This breakfast recipe is WONDERFUL and REFRESHING. Initially when I stirred in the orange juice, it curdled and I was horrified. I left it alone for 20mins and when I checked back it was not only curdled but it had separated too. I’m pretty sure this happened because I started making half the amount that the recipe called for and then somehow ended up doing the full amount for some ingredients, so I had to go back and readjust some things. I just want to assure people that a simple stir and the addition of the orange segments solved the whole thing and turned it into the most filling and sustaining breakfast. I will definitely be making this on a regular basis and sharing with others too. Have a great day :)

    to Jeani:
    thank you for being so patient and loving towards your mother, many adult children would not show such love and kindness in caring for their parents, especially while dealing with such a difficult disease. I have what is called “younger onset Alzheimers” and while to most, I am still highly functional, most don’t realize the frustration of never knowing what I will remember and won’t, what I can do and can’t because it changes from day to day. Take good care of yourself while you care for your mother. God will bless you many times over.

    is it ok to use the zest of oranges when even organic oranges still contain chemicals?
