Tiramisu Chia Pudding features layers of creamy vanilla chia pudding and rich, chocolatey espresso chia pudding for an easy recipe that’s so indulgent you’d never guess it’s healthy. Perfect for breakfast, snacks, or dessert, it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan! 

We love a good tiramisu recipe and incorporate the flavors into quite a few of our favorite desserts including our Oreo Tiramisu, Easy Chocolate Tiramisu, and Tiramisu Bread Pudding. While it makes for a great after-dinner treat, we think the rich coffee flavors are begging to be enjoyed for breakfast, too. 

And what better recipe to incorporate them in than Tiramisu Chia Pudding? If you’ve been anywhere in the food space over the last few years, you’re probably familiar with this breakfast pudding recipe. There are endless flavors and variations, and our readers seem to love them all! 

Honestly, we’re right there with you. We enjoy the plan versions and fruit-filled varieties as much as the next person, but sometimes you just need something a little extra. Do you agree? Luckily, this Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding checks all the boxes, making it a recipe you’ll definitely want to keep on hand!

What’s In This Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding Recipe? 

Tiramisu Chia Pudding is unlike other chia seed pudding recipes because it has not one but two layers of pudding! When combined, they create a tantalizing flavor unlike anything else. Luckily, they require similar items, meaning the ingredient list is short. 

  • Non-Dairy Milk – Any non-dairy milk such as almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, or oat milk will work great. Just keep in mind that the flavor of your chia seed pudding recipe may change slightly depending on what you choose. For instance, full-fat coconut milk will yield a thicker, sweeter chia pudding than a lighter milk option. 
  • Vanilla Extract – This helps enhance the sweetness of the rest of the ingredients. Make sure it’s pure vanilla extract and not imitation varieties! 
  • Cocoa Powder – We prefer to use Dutch cocoa powder for an extra rich, chocolatey taste. However, any unsweetened cocoa powder will do. Or, for a super bold flavor, use cacao powder instead. 
  • Coffee – Brewed coffee or espresso works best! If preferred, instant coffee works, too. Also, feel free to use decaf varieties. 
  • Maple Syrup – Helps sweeten the pudding. Honey or agave nectar works well, too. 
  • Chia Seeds – You can’t have a chia seed pudding recipe without chia seeds! They act as the “glue” holding everything together. Use black, white, or a combination of both colors. They all work great. 
  • Whipped Coconut Cream – Technically optional, this makes the vanilla layer extra creamy and sweet. 

How to Make Layered Tiramisu Chia Pudding

The layers of this recipe may make it look complicated to make, but it’s actually super easy! Here’s what to do: 

For the Coffee Layer: 

  1. Add all the ingredients for the coffee layer to a large bowl or sealable container. 
  2. Stir to combine. 
  3. Then, cover, and refrigerate until the mixture is thick and pudding-like. 

For the Vanilla Layer

  1. Add the ingredients for the vanilla chia seed pudding to a separate bowl or container. 
  2. Stir to combine. 
  3. Cover, and refrigerate until the mixture is thick. 


  1. Once the separate layers have thickened, layer them into two large jars. 
  2. Start by placing ½ of the coffee layer in each jar. Then, spoon the vanilla layer on top. 
  3. Add your favorite toppings, and chill in the fridge for later. Or, enjoy it right away!

Tips and Tricks

  • Use Fresh Chia Seeds. Using fresh chia seeds helps ensure they absorb the liquid and swell, creating the thick, pudding-like texture we’re looking to achieve with this Tiramisu Chia Pudding recipe.  
  • Stir Frequently. To prevent your pudding from clumping, combine the ingredients, and give them a good stir. Then, wait about 5 minutes, and stir again. Repeat this once or twice before transferring the layers to the fridge. It helps prevent them from clumping, creating a smoother consistency. 
  • Adjust the Ratios. For this Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding recipe, we kept the layers fairly thick so that they don’t run together as soon as they’re combined. However, feel free to adjust the ratios to suit your preferences. For instance, if you prefer runnier chia pudding, add more milk. Or, if you want your pudding even thicker, use a little less milk. 
  • Blend. If you aren’t a fan of the consistency of chia seeds, try putting your pudding in a blender! Just follow the recipe as normal. Then, once both layers are set, blend them separately before layering. This helps break down the chia seeds, creating a smoother, creamier texture.

Serving Suggestions

This Tiramisu Chia Pudding tastes great on its own. However, we love to add a dollop of yogurt and cocoa powder on top! Other topping ideas include: 

  • Fresh fruit like bananas, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Chocolate shavings
  • Chopped nuts

Storage Options

You’re definitely going to want to add this recipe to your weekly meal prep list! Keep the layers stored in separate airtight containers. Or, layer them in your favorite storage jars. Either way, they’ll stay fresh in the fridge for up to 4-5 days

Or, if you want a longer-lasting option, keep your chia seed pudding in the freezer instead. It will last up to 2 months. Then, just let it thaw in the fridge, and enjoy.
