Today is Day 23 of Whole30. I feel both like a victim and a survivor. I’m not shaking from sugar withdrawal, my energy levels are high, and my cousin’s wife told me this weekend that I’m “glowing.” I told her it was from all the bacon grease (kidding, sort of). I also survived the long Memorial Day weekend, which has been in years past my primary excuse to kick off spending lots of time outdoors sipping wine and eating gigantic juicy burgers perched on yeasty rolls.
Instead, this Memorial Day, the hubby and I sat soberly (literally) on the sidelines eating burgers wrapped in romaine lettuce. Our kids, meanwhile, smothered their faces in chocolate-y smores at night and ran around in the backyard with flashlights. Oh, what I would’ve given to be them.

Wondering how long it will last in the refrigerator? Is it still good a day after the first breakfast?
Yes, should be good for a couple of days. I’ve eaten mine around 2 days after mixing the initial batch and it’s been fine, but I wouldn’t go longer than that.
This looks so good! What a great dessert meal prep for the week!
Thank you Suzanne! Hope you try it!
Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
Hi Vanessa! It will keep for a few days, but I’ve noticed that it starts separating after 2-3 days in the fridge.
Wholw30-ers beware – This is not Whole30 complaint or approved. Read the book.
I think the Whole30 requirements evolve and change, and at the time I published this recipe, the banana almond chia pudding was Whole30 compliant. I haven’t done a Whole30 in years, so please do let me know if the requirements have changed! 🙂
While whole 30 compliant, chia puddings are not in the spirit of whole 30. It all or nothing baby! They even tell you on the website to put away your chia puddings for 30 days!
Why shouldn’t you use Goya coconut milk? It’s my favorite coconut milk.
In my experience Goya isn’t as creamy as the other brands I recommend and made a more watery chia pudding. But this was several years ago, so you might try it and see if it works?
The whole 30 updated and now includes rustic idaho potatoes. Chia a almond milk are also whole 30 compliant. Since you can’t have oats, wheat any king of rice. Why not have this to add to your plan. I have done Whole 30 6 times. And I have lost 20-25lbs each time. I will be adding this to my plan. But will be putting cinnamon and nutmeg in mine.
Thank you. This is a perfect substitution for my 6 week workout challenge that had me eating oatmeal for every breakfast.
That’s great! Keep up the good work!
Will this work with Almond Milk? I have a coconut allergy.
It should but since almond milk is not as thick I would double the chia seeds and see how it turns out.
