This delicious and simple recipe makes the perfect summertime breakfast or dessert. It’s kid-friendly and easy to make in large batches for your healthy meal prep, too! It’s Paleo, vegan, and has no added sugar.


  • 1 can light coconut milk (full-fat will also work, just avoid any weird added ingredients in either)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 4 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (optional)*
  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • dash fine sea salt
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, thinly sliced, 3-4 whole ones reserved for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, mix coconut milk, almond milk, chia seeds, and collagen powder, if using. Stir well, cover, and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
  2. To make shortcake, place macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, and sea salt in food processor and pulse until it forms a crumble consistency. Be careful not to over process, or you’ll end up with a nut butter.
  3. Slice strawberries very thinly, reserving 4 whole ones for garnish.
  4. After removing chia pudding from the fridge, stir well. In 3 pint-sized mason jars or 4 smaller ones, layer ingredients starting with the chia pudding, then strawberries, then the shortcake crumble. End with a nice mound of shortcake crumble at the top with a whole strawberry for garnish. If using for grab-and-go, screw on a lid. Enjoy!
