Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe


One of the hardest parts about eating well is finding the time to prepare healthy recipes.  I love the science behind what real foods can do for your body and I love sharing that knowledge so you can feel your absolute best.  I think the hardest part is preparing and cooking healthy food ALL OF THE TIME! I love the end product, but getting there is often a battle.  So when I find a recipe that is truly easy, I love to share it! Here is a super simple one you can prepare the night before and then enjoy for breakfast or as a snack! Yes, chocolate for breakfast, what’s not to love about that?!

Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding 

Prep time 15 mins Total time 15 mins Serves 4

Simple, 6 ingredient chocolate chia seed pudding that’s naturally sweetened and so thick and creamy. Simple, loaded with nutrients and perfect for breakfast, a snack or dessert!



  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Milk
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-5 Tbsp  maple syrup if not blending (can sub 5-9 dates, pitted if blending)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. If not blending (which I preferred!), sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time. If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
  2. Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it’s achieved a pudding-like consistency).
  3. If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
  4. Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
  5. Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola or coconut whipped cream.
