Chia Kheer Pudding: Healthy Vegan Dessert Recipe

Growing up, I absolutely enjoyed Indian Kheer made with rich ingredients like milk, sugar and rice. I tried to replicate this recipe using super healthy ingredients without compromising on flavor. Date Sugar is considered to be a healthy sugar alternative as it's made from dates (loaded with vitamins and fiber). Next time you crave something sweet, give this quick recipe a try!


  • 1/8 cup Chia seeds

  • 1-2 cups of nut milk (I used almond milk)

  • 1 tablespoon Date Sugar (You can also try maple syrup or honey)

  • 1 tablespoon Raisins

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

  • 1 tablespoon blanched almonds sliced


  • Soak chia seeds in 1/2 cup of water for half an hour

  • On a stovetop, heat 1-2 cups of almond milk and add chia seeds to the boiling milk and continue to stir for 5 minutes

  • Add more milk if you prefer thinner consistency

  • Add date sugar or any other sweetener, raisins, sprinkle some cinnamon and cook for another 2 minutes

  • Remove from the stove and top it off with almond slices and serve warm.

  • You can refrigerate for an hour if you prefer chilled.
