This easy chocolate chia pudding is so healthy you can have it for breakfast! Creamy, rich, delicious and ready in 30 minutes.
The awesome thing about this chocolate chia pudding is that you know you’re eating something super healthy.
And while being ridiculously good for you it still manages to be insanely delicious.
I’ve always had a thing for chia pudding, as evidenced by the fact that there are a couple of awesome recipes for chia pudding on this site, our peaches and cream chia pudding and our mango chia pudding.
It’s actually so healthy that this is a pudding you would be perfectly justified in having for breakfast! Yes, pudding for breakfast, life is just that good.
And then there’s the fact that this is a really easy dessert to whip together.
How To Make Chocolate Chia Pudding
You will find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a summary of the process to go along with the process photos.
It’s just a case of throwing some chia seeds and cocoa powder into a bowl.
Then you pour over coconut milk and maple syrup and whisk until it’s all well mixed. Then you just place it into the fridge for 30 minutes.
If you take it out for a stir half way through, that’s good, but if you forget, that’s also fine (I forgot!), you can just stir it a bit more vigorously at the 30 minute mark.
Then you divide it into bowls and serve.
If you serve it with some dark chocolate pieces and mint leaves, well, that’s even better.
It’s best served right away, if you leave it in the fridge overnight, it sets more and more firmly until it’s quite solid, which is less good.
As you see it served here, it’s a delicious consistency, very ‘pudding-like’ in all the good ways.
