Chocolate Chia Pudding

A healthy pudding that's full of rich, decadent chocolate flavor. If you're turned off by the idea of trying chia seeds, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how good this is!

Total Time 4 hrs 5 mins


  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract vanilla works too
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice

Optional toppings


  • Add all of your ingredients to a medium-sized bowl or a 16 mason jar. I use a short, wide-mouth mason jar.
  • Give all of your ingredients a good stir. If you're using a mason jar, screw the top on tightly and give it a good shake.
  • Let the pudding sit for about 15 minutes, then give it a good stir using a spoon. Most of the seeds will have settled to the bottom, so be sure to scoop them up and stir well to break up any clumps.
  • Cover your bowl or jar, and let the pudding rest in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 4 hours.
  • When you're ready to eat your pudding, pull it from the refrigerator and give it a good stir. Scoop it in to your serving dish and top it with your whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and a few sliced almonds.
