Why We Like It


Homemade chocolate pudding...and even better, packed with nutritious chia seeds!  When added to homemade pudding, chia seeds turn gel-like, similar to tapioca, and help create a delicious pudding.   Feel free to top with your favorite toppings such as chopped nuts, cacao nibs, or sliced strawberries -- super satisfying!  Try our fruit versions too -- Berry Chia Seed Pudding and Mango Chia Seed Pudding!

Mix Together:

  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened, or skim or soy milk)
  • 1/4 cup dried chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (OPTIONAL)

Add to a medium sized bowl and stir until well combined.

Divide and Refrigerate:

Divide into two half pint size (8 oz) mason jars, or into 2 small containers.

TIP:  let sit for about 10 minutes, and then stir again before placing in the refrigerator.  (This will help prevent the chia seeds from clumping.)

Place in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 4 hours.  This pudding will keep well in the refrigerator for at least 4-5 days.

Serve and Enjoy!

  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or almonds, OPTIONAL)
  • 2 Tbsp cacao nibs (or crushed dark chocolate, OPTIONAL)
  • 2 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut (OPTIONAL)

Top with any or all of the optional toppings if desired just before serving.
