Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

I highly recommend this Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding.  I have been really into chia seeds lately.  They are so good for you and the high fiber content keeps you full for a long time.  So when Pacific Foods sent me a few samples of their unsweetened non dairy milk, I knew I had to make a chocolate chia seed pudding.

I already have a Chia Seed Pudding on the blog, but this time I decided to switch it up and do a chocolate version.  I used Pacific’s new unsweetened hemp milk for this recipe.

I love the unsweetened milk because I like to control the sugar in my recipes.  This tastes decadent enough to have for dessert, but it’s also healthy enough to have for breakfast!

I have been pretty stoked lately to see the organic berries coming back to the supermarket.  I have been waiting for them all winter.  They taste so good.

Both my kids loved it.  Even my daughter Olive, who is tube fed, ate this up as you can see from the messy face in the next picture. Who can say no to anything chocolate?

Another great thing about this healthy chia seed pudding is that you can easily take it to work with you.  Just put it in a small mason jar and you are on your way to work!  It’s a healthy breakfast recipe that should keep you fueled all the way until lunchtime.


Here are some recipes you can add chia seeds to:

  • Granola Bars
  • Cookies
  • Overnight Oats
  • Muffins
  • Smoothies

So you can see they are very versatile.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is super easy and my kind of recipe! If you like a thicker pudding though, you can add a bit less milk.

  1. Do you use fresh or frozen fruit? Just mix it by spoon? Also 2 tbsp raw cacao or cocoa powder or does it matter? I don't have organic cocoa powder just the organic raw cacao powder .
  2. This was great! I made it last night for this morning. I actually tripled the batch (family of five and I figured it'll last 2 days this way). I didn't have fresh berries so I made due with what I had, and used dried cranberries (which plumped in the process and were GREAT) and some coconut. Next batch, I'm thinking of adding a dash of vanilla and cinnamon for fun. That'll be my winter batch until our berries show up in the farmer's market. Delicious, filling and I'm full of energy! (Plus calcium and fiber!)
        1. No cooking required. The chia seeds will absorb a lot of the liquid to create a gel-like texture. Just chill in the fridge for it to set.
  3. I have customers who make the chia seed pudding with coconut milk. Sounds wonderful, I'll have to try it sometime soon.
  4. I read that flax seed need to be ground to be digested, otherwise the pass straight through. Have you heard that too, and do you know if the same is true for chia seeds? Love you recipes, thank you!!
      1. I'm sure that chia digests. I started consuming between 4 and 5 tablespoons a day to see if it would work for my migraines. Apparently, I have had an Omega Fatty Acid deficiency for most of my life. I went from 3 to 4 migraines a week to about 1. If I miss some of my seeds, I'll likely have a migraine the next day. Proof's in the pudding! Haha
    1. Yes, I didn't realize that at the time I wrote this post. I make my own now. I still buy my daughter their oatmilk. It does not have carrageenan.
      1. There are 2 kinds of carrageneen: degraded and undegraded. Degraded carrageenan is a known carcinogen and is not permitted in food. Undegraded carrageenan, on the other hand, is considered safe by numerous agencies including the FDA. So Delicious ONLY uses undegraded carrageenan, which is considered safe.
          1. I should apologize. I should have stated that I'm new here but like what I see and I should have noted that it was just info I had. Thanks for being so gracious!
  5. I added some agave to this as it was too bitter for me (I get unsweetened almond milk, so perhaps thats why). Very tasty and healthy snack!! :o) Thanks
