I already shared with you my basic chia seed pudding recipe in a previous post, but something was telling me that this healthy chocolatey goodness deserves a separate post.

This is pretty much the same chia pudding, but this time we add unsweetened saw cocoa powder and slightly more sweetener (to balance the taste).

The result – protein, fiber and healthy fatty acid rich pudding, that is great for breakfast or guilt free sweet treat.

Chia Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Basic ingredients:

  • Chia seeds
  • Nut milk (coconut or oat milk will work), for best results, the milk should be lukewarm, so it easily combines with the cocoa powder
  • Raw unsweetened cocoa powder

Other ingredients:

  • Salt (optional, but enhances the chocolate flavor)
  • Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • Berries for topping
  • Chopped nuts (topping)
  • Chopped vegan dark chocolate (topping)

How to make:

  1. Stir together the cocoa powder and chia seeds. Add the milk, sweetener and salt. Stir very well.

Nutritional information does not include the toppings.
For best results use lukewarm milk, instead of cold, this way the cocoa powder disperses better and the pudding gets more smooth.
