  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp. Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 3/4 tsp. sea salt


  • Sift the cocoa powder into a bowl to get rid of any lumps. 
  • Whisk together all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth and well incorporated. 
  • 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.
  • Once it has set, garnish with freshly whipped cream, strawberries, and mint and serve (or just enjoy it as is!) 


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