- Almond milk- plain unsweetened almond milk was used in this recipe but if you'd like a little sweeter pudding you could try it with a sweetened dairy free milk. Vanilla almond milk would be another great choice for this.
- Cacao powder- you could substitute with unsweetened cocoa powder if needed.
- Chia seeds- if you prefer a thicker pudding you can add an extra tablespoon of chia seeds to the pudding.
- Maple syrup- you can adjust the amount of sweetener based on your tastes
How to make chocolate chia pudding
It's really so simple to make. So you'll probably want to add this to your rotations.
All you need to do is add the cacao powder to a mixing bowl, along with almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract and whisk it together.
Then stir in chia seeds till combined making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all the chia seeds.
Recipe notes & tips
I recommend stirring the pudding after it's been sitting in the fridge covered for about 20-30 minutes.
You can then store it in airtight serving jars or a mason jar.
It's best if allowed to chill at least 4-6 hours but I find the flavors intensify and it's even better the next day!
How long can it be stored
It will keep in the fridge in an airtight covered jar for up to 5 days.
For longer storage you can freeze it in airtight freezer safe containers. Just allow to thaw in fridge the night before for a quick breakfast the next day.
