Alkaline Recipe #160: Coconut Chia Cream Pot

Alkaline DESSERT OR Breakfast Recipe: Coconut Chia Cream Pot

Oh. My. Gosh.

I am predicting this might be my favourite recipe of the year. My Coconut Chia Cream Pot has been tested on some of my most happily unhealthy friends (heh) and they LOVED it. My most healthy friends? They loved it too!

It’s an alkaline, delicious dessert you can serve to the family, at a dinner party, you can take it to work in your packed lunch…

And it packs a whole lotta omega 3, fibre, alkaline minerals, vitamins, antioxidants…it’s amazing.

There are a couple of not 100% alkaline ingredients in here, but they are outweighed easily by the alkaline ingredients. But they add some delicious flavour and make this a huge hit.

Remember, we’re never aiming for perfection, we’re aiming to make being healthy a fun, enjoyable and delicious experience for life 🙂

Here’s how you do it:

Coconut Chia Cream Pots

Serves 4


1 cup of (organic) coconut milk
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1 date
1 cup of coconut yoghurt
1 tablespoon of flax seeds, ground, or 1 tablespoon of flax meal
1 tsp of sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Toppings for 3 varieties:

1 handful of blueberries
1 handful of mixed nuts (almonds, macadamia, pistachios, brazil nuts etc)
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 fig

Instructions to Make the Chia Cream Pots!

Alkaline Diet Recipe Book BannerFirstly, sweeten the coconut milk by blending with the date. This little touch of sweetness and flavour from the date makes a huge difference!

Next combine the coconut milk in a large bowl with chia seeds, vanilla, flaxmeal (ground flax) and sesame seeds.

Put into the fridge for 20-30 minutes until the chia has expanded.

To serve, fill a small glass with a layer of coconut yoghurt, followed by the chia mix, then a little extra layer of coconut yoghurt.

Top with your choice of toppings!

The three varieties I love are:

  • simply with blueberries (a fruit that is very mildly acid forming, but delicious with this mix and the dish is still overall alkaline forming)
  • with mixed nuts and cinnamon – yum!
  • with fig for a sweeter, more exotic flavour to complement the coconut!

A final variation would be to mix 2 teaspoons of raw cacao powder in with the chia or with the coconut milk (when you blend in the dates) to make it a chocolate chia cream pot!

Enjoy and test it on your family and friends!

It’s creamy, delicious and alkaline!

    When you say coconut milk do you mean ALPRO Coconut milk in carton or is it the tinned coconut milk? Also I cannot find coconut yogurt can I use Greek yogurt instead?

    • ross Reply

      The tinned stuff. Needs to be thicker than the milk alternative version.

    Please Ross, help me, I know Alkaline is the way to go and I am doing it. I am also exercising everyday but I have completly stopped losing wight, my stools are floating, I’m belching after almost everything I eat and I’m bloating and getting a painful belly from eating. I’ve looked into it and I am certain I have fat malabsorption. What do i do??? Nothing is helping and I’m not feeling well. (I am still sticking with the alkaline diet) I am new to email and ordering on the computor a friend set me up. I tried to order from you but don’t know if it went through. If so will the books be coming in the mail? I hope so.

      Hey, I am definitely no authority on the subject, but I do know that when poo floats it has to do with fat. It could be malabsorption (which I am not familiar with), or the result of a diet with a lot of fat on it (this happens with a keto diet). Personally I get the painful, bloated, swollen intestines if I eat too many raw vegetables. I really wish I could eat my veggies raw, but it’s too hard for me to digest. But I have found that having a “balance” (and I mean just eating both unless you are diabetic) of fiber sources coming from both cooked vegetables and alkaline whole-grain sources has really improved my stomach issues, of which I had maaaaaany. Also my stools have just the right texture now, even though I eat a lot of fat. I’ve found that my limit for eating raw veggies is two meals or snacks a day (a green smoothie and a salad), if I go over that I suffer the consequences. You can try and see if maybe your issue is coming from the veggies? Try focusing on eating mostly cooked veggies, any kind is fine, but I think technically steamed is best. (I use a combination of sauteing, steaming, and roasting).

    Hi Ross
    Do you have any quick snack recipes for toddlers. My daughter has a 2 1/2 year old that is always hungry. She finds it hard to come up with different healthy snacks.

  10. Aardy Willow Reply

    Hi Ross, have been reading your emails and am not on the program as yet but hoping to get there soon because I think it is valid. I do have a concern about protein as it seems dense protein is the only food that really quells the hunger pangs. I’ve tried a lot of diets and it is always the same thing … eat a piece of chicken breast or fish and its so much easier to stick with the program. I see in your writings that meat is not alkaline so that is a major concern of mine. I work long hours and already eat light but am always hungry until I get that dense and acidic source of protein it seems. Thanks. Aardy

    Hi Ross,
    Sorry to say – I was liking the sound of your Coconut Chia cream pot- until I saw it, just reminds me of Frogspawn !! Pity because I love the ingredients but, the feeling on my tongue, not for me.
    My apologies,

    • Ludia Booth Reply

      When you refer to coconut milk in the recipe for chia pots, are you using the canned variety, or the coconut milk beverage?
      Thank you!

      • ross Reply

        Canned makes it more creamy, but the drinking kind is fine too.

  12. JoAnn Miller Reply

    Gosh darn there are so many recipes that call for “some sort of COCONUT”- but I am highly allergic to coconut of any form. Please tell me some SUBSTITUTE for COCONUT. Thanks for your help

  13. Sue Reply

    Can I just ask about coconut milk please. I’m in the uk, not London area and all I can find are the tins (which separate very definitely into solid and liquid) and cartons which all seem to have sweetener of some sort in them. When you use coconut milk in recipes such as smoothies, dinners, chia pots etc are you meaning tins, cartons or is there something else on the market not available here in middle earth?!!

    I love your site and recipes (It would be nice if they were printer friendly though)
    I’m just wondering if your book is available in hard copy?
    Kind regards,

    • ross Reply

      Hey Wendy

      Am slowly going through them all to make them printer friendly. It is taking a while 🙂

      The book is nowadays in digital format. Allows me to add new recipes/update, add new bonuses as I make them etc. plus customer feedback was that everyone was just reading it in their kitchen on their ipad or phone nowadays.

      Hope you still want to grab a copy!


    • Alison Reply

      I just highlight the recipe and copy it and then paste into a word document and save, and then you can print from there if you wish.

  15. Mia Reply


    Thanks for great recipes! I read that flax seeds can be toxic, what’s your take on that?

    • ross Reply

      Hey Mia – I don’t believe this is true at all.

    How much of this good kind of water should we drink a day? Is 8 glasses a day still suggested?

    • ross Reply

      Hey Cassie – 8 days really is the minimum. You ideally want to be aiming for more than that and up to 3-4 litres per day.

    Can never find anywhere I can go on chat even though your site says you can chat. Also, where is the recipie for Alkaline Springtime Soup. It’s not in the book and it messes up my first day.

    How much water in this Ross? looks good..great Night Duty pick up..Many Thanks for all your info….Jayne

    • Energise Ross Reply

      Hi Jayne

      I edited my recipe while I was testing and tweaking as I went and opted to use coconut milk instead of cream + water at the last minute with my final batch – keep it simple!

      Cheers for the heads up

    what is a coconut yogurt.I have never heard that before

    • Energise Ross Reply

      Hi Jacqueline

      It’s this:

      Basically coconut milk with an added vegan thickener to make a delicious, creamy, alkaline yoghurt!

    It’s hard to convince my boyfriend about alkaline water. He says it doesn’t
    Turn your body alkaline. What research do you have
    Or articles do you have to show me so I can show him

  30. Nancy Kaps Reply

    Wouldn’t the flax seed and sesame seed be more beneficial if it were ground? Can not receive any nutritional value from flax seed if it is not ground. Probably not from sesame seed either.

    • Energise Ross Reply

      Hi Nancy

      Yep, would be more beneficial. I try to keep my recipes simple and not too complex, but I may change the flax to flax-meal to help people keep it quick and easy.

      Thanks for the suggestion
