  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (may substitute milk of choice)
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder (may substitute cocoa powder)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (may substitute honey or sugar-free sweetener)
  • 1/3 cup organic chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender (best to add chia seeds last).
  2. Blend away for several minutes until pudding is well combined.
  3. Pour pudding into a glass jar with a lid and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Recipe Notes

The pudding thickens over time in the refrigerator.

When serving, add berries, chopped nuts or other favorite garnishes (coconut whipped cream).

Adding the chia seeds last works best because chia seeds tend to "stick" to the sides of the blender otherwise.

When making this pudding, I add one tablespoon of maple syrup. My theory is that you can always add a little to your serving if you desire; but, like salt, you can't take away if too much is added.

Most times, it is sweet enough for me as is. So, taste and add to your preferences.
