Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

“Chocolate what? You can EAT chia?” That is the comment I got after I told my neighbor that I made chia seed pudding.

In our house we tend to eat “clean” which means nothing processed, no refined sugars, whole wheat flour etc… although if the right recipe comes along that I just can’t resist, I am not one known to turn down sweets. lol

Anyhow, I love chia seeds. Love, love, LOVE chia seeds. They are full of fiber, omega 3 and are just awesome for you. Please say that you will try this recipe before you say “ew!” because the same person that couldn’t believe that you could eat chia seeds actually tried my pudding and LOVED it.

This recipe is REALLY easy! All you do is:

Take a mason jar or another container with a tight fitting lid and pour 1 cup of non-dairy milk into it (coconut, almond, soy, hemp) and then add in 1/4 cup of chia seeds, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tbsp cacao powder, and stevia to taste.

Put the lid on securely and shake it like a Polaroid picture! Shake, shake, shake what your mama gave ya. Shaking burns calories, so shake this stuff for about a minute.

Then, after you have shaken your pudding to be, you need to stick it in the fridge for several hours so that the chia seeds can plump up. After about 2 hours you can remove the lid and either dig right into the jar, or pour it into a small bowl. The consistency is NOT like the typical pudding. It has a chewy consistency sort of like a rice or tapioca pudding. It’s not smooth like chocolate pudding, but I can assure you that this is MUCH healthier and you will LOVE it!

So, are you brave enough to try? If so, report back on what you thought of it!

  1. I’m definitely brave enough to try it! Do you think it would work with dairy milk? If not, I’ll use almond, but I do like my dairy.

  2. Mmmhmmm! We do this all the time! So yummy! :)

  3. I love chia seeds but never thought of putting them in pudding, I am going to make this for sure!

    I have seen many recipes with chia seeds and I am always intrigued. This looks really good and I would love to try it. I just have to find a place that sells chia seeds.
