  1. Sift the cocoa powder into a bowl to get rid of any lumps. 

  2. Whisk together all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth and well incorporated. 

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight if you prefer. The longer you let it set, the firmer the pudding will be.

  4. Once it has set, garnish with freshly whipped cream, strawberries, and mint and serve (or just enjoy it as is!) 

Recipe Notes

Storage: The chocolate chia pudding will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
