I have been craving chocolate a lot lately, and all I want to eat at this point is chocolate, preferably covered in chocolate. So I needed something healthy to satisfy my cravings and I needed something filling so that I wouldn’t have to make and eat 10 servings of it. Luckily, my brilliant mother likes to email me recipes she wants me to try, and Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding was among them. It was exactly what I needed. Can you imagine if I had baked and eaten 24 double chocolate chip cookies on my own? Or worse, bought highly processed ones from the store? I think I made a smart choice that day, because Lord knows it would not have been good for my thighs. This Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is super rich, absolutely delightful, vegan, simple to make, and only uses a handful of ingredients.

Pudding has always been one of my favorite desserts, especially back when I was younger. The Snack Pack Chocolate Pudding was the best thing since sliced bread to me. I could eat a whole pack of things and would still ask for more. But about a year and a half ago, I was introduced to chia seed pudding and I am happy to say that I have found a new love. I mean, I can’t get enough of this stuff! Yet, in that time, I had only ever made/eaten cinnamon-vanilla chia seed pudding.

Chia seeds are super healthy for you! Chia seeds are full of omega-3′s, fiber, phosphorus, manganese, protein, and calcium. AND they help you get full faster, so you don’t have to eat as much of it to be satisfied.

You don’t have to stand over the stove to make this awesome pudding! All you have to do to make this is throw all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. You can blend up the chia seeds first if you want, or you can add them after all of the other ingredients are mixed up. Then, let it sit on the counter or in the fridge for 10-15 minutes and voila!, you have yourself just about the richest chocolate chia seed pudding on the surface of the planet. However, if you want your pudding to be fully chilled, you can leave it in the refrigerator for an hour or so.

Here’s the recipe:

    Oh wow, this looks so good. Have never really tried it but anything chocolaty is high in my book.

    Mine came out super gritty. It tastes right but the texture scratches my throat. What could I have done wrong?

    • Margaret Anne September 26, 2014 at 8:56 am Reply

      I’m sorry to hear that, Eli. Some things that could have gone wrong are maybe you didn’t blend the chia seeds enough. I haven’t had this problem, but I’m sorry to hear that it didn’t work for you. You could also try not blending the chia seeds at all.

    I’m definitely going to try this, Margaret. I have been reading so much about the health benefits of chia seeds and they seem to be something that everyone should include in their diet. And who doesn’t love chocolate pudding! I’m with you, when I was a kid I just gobbled it up, lol.
    I love the simplicity of this and I have all those ingredients on hand. I use coconut milk in my protein shake every morning so I’m good to go. Thanks, Margaret!

    I never ate chia seeds before but I’d like look into it. The pudding looks simple and delicious! I’m gradually switching my breakfast from eggs into nutrition packed smoothies lately. Got to try out this one soon!
