Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

We’re big chia fans over here at Fit Foodie Finds, and you’ll find a plethora of recipes on our site with chia seeds like this Creamy Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding or this Chia Yogurt Power Bowl or this Chocolate Chia Overnight Oats or these Gluten Free Waffles with Strawberry Chia Compote just to name a few. We love chia seeds for a few reasons: they’re a complete protein (win), and they pack great nutrients including omega 3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and calcium (quadruple win).

How to Make Chia Pudding

There are only 3 steps in this recipe (and the third step is really just you enjoying your delicious chia seed pudding). We’re talking easy peasy lemon squeezy dessert prep over here. And we promise it will wow whoever you’re whipping up this perfect pudding for.

Step 1: Place all of your ingredients (chia seeds, cocoa powder, maple syrup, sea salt and almond milk) in a medium-sized bowl and whisk together until the cocoa powder is completely dissolved. We like to use a bowl with a lid for this recipe, so you can safely store it in the fridge without worrying about your chia pudding spilling.

Step 2: Cover your chia pudding and place into the fridge for around 6 hours. You’ll be able to tell when the chia seeds are ready when they’re jelly-like and the pudding thickens. You can store this chia pudding in the fridge for 3-5 days, so feel free to whip up a batch the night before you’re going to serve it to be sure it’s completely ready to eat.

Step 3: Top your chia seed pudding with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

We topped ours with some vanilla Greek yogurt and fresh berries, but you’re more than welcome to keep things dairy-free and use coconut whipped cream. It’s your dessert after all :D Here are some additional toppings to inspire your chia seed pudding loving heart:

  • fresh berries
  • sliced bananas
  • white chocolate chips
  • chocolate shavings
  • whipped cream
  • orange zest
  • mandarin oranges
  • coconut flakes
  • slivered almonds
