Key Lime Kefir Pudding w/ Coconut Hazelnut Crumble

I’ve always been a lover of citrus and key lime pie – but this was like key lime pie in a cup. I wanted all of it. And the best news… kefir is a fermented yogurt product with TONS of probiotics. Plus there is an avocado blended in. So this pudding is amazing for your digestive health AND tastes great. My mind is imploding right now. Drop everything. Go make this pudding.

Now I can’t take credit for this recipe, while I altered a few minor things, it’s the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) who are behind this delicious pudding.

I styled a food segment highlighting digestive health and fermented foods at CKCO News in Kitchener Waterloo with the lovely Holistic Nutritionist Michelle Book. She demoed this recipe on air which I prepped the heroes (finished product) for and my goodness, it was phenomenal… Like so phenomenal that I immediately went home and made more.

You can find the original recipe on the CHFA website, along with TONS of other delicious things to make!

Key Lime Kefir Pudding w/ Coconut Hazelnut Crumble

Print Recipe
Serves: 6


  • Pudding
  • 2 1/2 cups kefir (plain)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds
  • Topping:
  • coconut whipped cream*
  • 1/4 cup coconut chips (find them at your local health food store- you can sub shredded coconut)
  • 1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts



Blend all ingredients for the pudding in a blender until smooth. Distribute pudding into 6 glasses (~1/2 cup servings). Place in fridge for an hour to allow the ground chia to thicken the pudding slightly (it will still be fairly fluid - like a thick smoothie).


In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts and coconut chips until coarse. Set aside.


Top with a dollop of coconut whipped cream, and a tablespoon of the hazelnut + coconut crumble.


* Either make it yourself by refrigerating a can of coconut milk and scooping off the cream from the top- whip with a bit of honey as you would whipping cream OR you can now buy coconut whipping cream in a can - similar to the aerosol whipping cream cans in the grocery store!
