I first blogged about the amazing chia seed in my ‘over night oats with chia seeds’ recipe and had some left over to experiment with, which led me to making this delicious dessert!

 

It was a twitter follower who first told me about this recipe and as soon as I saw the words ‘chocolate’ and ‘pudding’ I couldn’t wait to get started. This chocolate pudding is packed with 100% healthy ingredients and is super quick and simple to make.

 

P.S Scroll down for a breakfast version of this dessert too!!

 

Ingredients

  • 300ml almond milk (rice milk also works)
  • 45-50g (4-5 tbsp) chia seeds*
  • 2 tbsp cocoa (swap for tsp if this is too rich for you, or use hot chocolate powder instead)
  • 1-2 tbsp honey, agave nectar or sweet freedom (again swap for tsp if desired)

*Available from health food stores such as Holland and Barrett or Amazon.

    Hi Nic – made this a few hours ago but it isn’t really setting :( Tastes great though! Only reason I can think is that I used ‘milled’ chia seeds. What do you think?

    Hey Nic!
    I always have problem with chia pudding :( i don’t know why but it doesn’t absorb the water… What kind of chia do you use? (Black, white, red?) And do you think it matters?

      Hello! I use the normal black chia seeds… I didn’t actually know there were other varieties! Do you leave it to soak for long enough or use enough? x
