Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding – 100% Healthy!!

Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding – 100% Healthy!!

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 I’ve included a breakfast version of this dessert too!!


Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding


  • 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)


  1. Mix all of the above ingredients together in a bowl and keep mixing until all of the cocoa/hot chocolate powder is dissolved
  2. Pour into your chosen bowl or glass ( x 2)
  3. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.. and enjoy!


And here is my breakfast version of this recipe.. inspired by YOUR comments (thank you!!)

Ingredients (serves 1): 45g (1/4 cup) chia seeds, 200ml milk, 1 tbsp stevia, 1/4 tsp vanilla plus toppings of frozen berries & honey.

Method: 1) Combine the chia seeds, milk, stevia and vanilla in a bowl 2) Stir well, cover & chill in the fridge overnight or for at least two hours 3) Give the breakfast pudding a final stir before topping with fruit & honey!

    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
