Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

I am completely and totally late to the chia seed pudding party. I was a late bloomer too…so maybe that has something to do with it. But I’d like to think I’ve got a chocolate chia seed pudding recipe that you’re really going to enjoy. It’s also gluten free, vegan and Paleo (for some people).

I’ve been using chia seeds for quite some time in my morning smoothie, but I really had a craving for some pudding the other day and decided I would bust out the chia seeds for that. Since I’m lactose intolerant, making traditional pudding is something I just don’t do. It’s not pretty, oh the pudding is, but I’m not..

Chia seed pudding is so easy to make I can’t believe I’m just getting around to making it now. I’ve actually made this recipe everyday for a week now.

You’ve got a couple of choices when you’re making the pudding. You can either chuck everything into the blender or not blend the chia seeds. It just depends how you like it. I prefer everything blended because when the chia seeds gel they get stuck in my teeth. It’s not a good look for anybody. I also like putting everything in the blender, when I make this, because it just makes the recipe that much easier to make – and who doesn’t like easy?

There’s a lot of flavors going on in this chia seed pudding too. Since there’s vanilla, chocolate and maple syrup in the recipe. I like it because the cocoa nibs give it a nice chocolate flavor but it’s not an overly rich chocolate flavor. The vanilla kind of brings all the flavors together in this pudding.

So why not make up a bowl of this chocolate chia seed pudding. Since it makes 2 servings you can have one for breakfast and another for a snack or dessert.

Hi Crista, so I’m not the only one? Yes, it’s super simple to make and actually tastes good too. I like that you can play around with the flavors too.
