Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • fruits of choice to top (I used raspberries)

Instructions

  • In a bowl combine chia seeds, cocoa powder, almond milk and maple syrup. Whisk to combine. Let sit 5 minutes, then whisk again to remove any clumps that may have formed.
  • Cover, and let chia pudding rest for at least 10 minutes before eating. Or, place in fridge overnight to thicken. The longer you wait the thicker it will become.
  • When ready to eat, top chia pudding with your favourite fruits.

Notes

Chia pudding will keep in fridge for up to 4 days. Feel free to double or triple the batch for meal prep. 
Chia pudding takes only 10 minutes to make, but the longer you wait the thicker it becomes. I recommend to prepare this chocolate chia pudding overnight, so you can wake up to the perfect consistency.
Additionally, you might like your chia pudding a bit thicker or thinner. Feel free to add splashes more almond milk to thin, or sprinkle with a pinch more chia seeds and stir to thicken (a few chia seeds can go a long way).
I recommend using my homemade almond milk for this recipe for a thicker and creamier chia pudding. However, store-bought works well. See blog post above for further details.
