Instant Pot Coconut-Blueberry Chia Pudding
Print Recipe
Chia seeds are high in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, and they’re the perfect ingredient for a healthy breakfast pudding. The combination of chia seeds and oats also makes for a great chewy texture. I like this with blueberries because they’re not too tart, but you can use your favorite frozen berry instead, if you like.

    Super yummy! Only problem is both times I’ve made it, the dreaded “burn” appears… this may be best made on the stove under a watchful eye and frequent stirring. 🙁

    Would this be okay for the freezer as well? I’ve don’t use chia seeds often but I tend to meal prep a couple weeks in advance

    This pudding is actually delicious and my infant son loves it. The only issue as one person said is that i kept getting a “burn” message. I just swithced it to low and added more coconut milk to loosen it up.

    I too got the burn error, even after i added more liquid. This recipe tastes good, but needs to be revised and reposted as many people are getting the burn error for a very basic recipe. I ended up taking it out and cooking it on the stove.

    Came here because I wanted to see if others were having the same issue, with this recipe from the cookbook. I also got the burn message… will try as another, by adding more milk (sucks to open another can) and doing this on low pressure.

    Same! Got the burn message. It heated up for a bit and because if you leave oats/chia seeds overnight they will soften up anyways, I just went ahead and put them into their storage containers and let them cool before transferring to the fridge overnight. I can tell that the consistency will be fine by doing that. But yes, this recipe should really be updated as it is not suitable as is without getting a burn message.

    Got the dreaded burn message too. I am just going to mix it up and put it in containers. Hoping for the best overnight in the fridge!!

    I wish I had read these reviews before I attempted this recipe, TWICE. I thought I was doing something wrong, as I too got a burn message twice, even after adding extra water to the second attempt. Shame. This recipe definitely needs to be revised. Do not attempt this in your Instant Pot, you’ll be scraping burn marks off every time!

    I got the burn message too. I have made it many times trying different remedies such as adding more water, more coconut milk and using low pressure. Has anyone had any success making it without the burn message? If so, what have you done? It tastes good even with the burn parts, but I would like to try it made properly!

    I also got the burn message. I tried several times to scrape the bowl and try again, but got it every time. I would love to know a revised way to make this it seems like it would be delicious.

    I started to cook this per the directions and stopped when I read the reviews. Basically I just warmed it up to really hot and then stopped it and left for a couple of hours. Came back and it was perfect! All set up and pudding like!
