Chocolate Chia Pudding

  • Author: Joscelyn Abreu
  • Yield: 45 servings 1x


A simple yet delicious treat that can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert! Only a handful of wholesome ingredients and is gluten, grain, dairy, and refined sugar free.



Chocolate Chia Pudding:

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoon cocoa/cacao powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey, or other sweetener of choice (can use less or more, to taste)
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk or other milk of choice

Optional Toppings:

  • plain dairy-free/Greek yogurt or whipped coconut cream
  • fresh fruit of choice (I love cherries, strawberries, raspberries, etc.)
  • cacao nibs or chopped nuts, optional


  1. Blend together chia seeds, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl or container. Add vanilla, sweetener, and begin to whisk in milk a little at a time until cocoa powder and chia seeds are well blended. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 hour or more, or until seeds have gelled and pudding has thickened. Whisk again halfway through to break up clumps of chia seeds.
  2. Divide pudding into bowls and serve with optional toppings. Makes 4–5 servings.
