Ingredients

Scale

CHOCOLATE CHIA PUDDING:

  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
  • 12 tablespoons cocoa powder (I use 2 tbsp of Dutch Cocoa for an intense chocolate flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla, optional
  • 12 tablespoons Maple Syrup or Coconut Sugar, more or less to taste
  • 1 cup almond milk or other milk of choice (homemade almond milk recipe HERE)

RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING:

  • 1 cup raspberries, fresh or thawed from frozen (or other berry of choice)
  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla, optional
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup or Coconut Sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk or other milk of choice (homemade almond milk recipe HERE)

TOPPINGS:

  • Fresh Fruit: berries, sliced bananas, or kiwi to top
  • Nuts and Seeds: hemp seeds, cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut, almonds, hazelnuts, etc.

Instructions

TO MAKE CHOCOLATE PUDDING:

  1. In a medium jar or container, mix together chia seeds and cocoa powder. Stir in vanilla, maple syrup and then almond milk until well combined. Cover with lid and store in the refrigerator for 2 hours to overnight. (If you can remember, it helps to stir about 15-30 minutes after it has been soaking to break up any chia clumps)

TO MAKE RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING:

  1. In a medium jar or container, mash together raspberries and chia seeds until the berries are broken down and there aren’t any big chunks remaining. Stir in vanilla, maple syrup, and milk until well combined. Cover container with a lid and place in the refrigerator to thicken for 1 hour to overnight.(If you can remember, it helps to stir about 15-30 minutes after it has been soaking to break up any chia clumps)

PUTTING IT TOGETHER:

  1. After chia seeds have gelled and mixture is thick, like pudding, stir with a whisk to break up any chia clumps. Layer puddings in a dish or jar, one on top of the other or you can alternate layers. Sprinkle fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds in between layers or on top of the pudding. Serve chilled. Makes two 1 cup servings.
