A chocolate chia seed pudding is a healthy breakfast recipe combining chia seeds and milk to create a smooth, creamy breakfast bowl.
It has a similar texture to tapioca pudding, it’s creamy with slimy round bites of seeds. However, puddings made of chia are healthier than the ones made of tapioca pearls. Indeed, the chia seeds are super seeds!
They contain almost no carbs, lots of vitamins, and fiber. Chia seeds are also loaded with 34 grams of fiber per 100 grams.
In fact, that’s this high amount of fiber that provides the amazing properties of chia seeds. They are highly liquid-absorbent and double in size when soaked in water or milk, creating a creamy, silky smooth texture like pudding.
Chocolate pudding with chia is a very easy 4-ingredient recipe. The only difference from one recipe to another is the chia pudding ratio and milk used in the recipe.
As a main rule, if you want to get a silky smooth texture, you must use 1/4 cup of chia seeds per 1 1/4 cup of milk or 45 grams of chia seeds per 300 ml of milk.

In this chocolate pudding recipe, we use unsweetened dairy-free milk to limit calories, carbs, and sugar. All you need to make this delicious chocolate chia seed pudding is:
Chia seeds are very bland in flavor, they mainly had a slimy texture to breakfast and desserts. If you are not a big fan of the viscous texture of the super seeds, you can grind them.
Grinding the chia seeds into a powder will essentially remove the slimy seed texture. Also, it will create smoother, creamier pudding more like a keto dessert.
But, hey who will complain about dessert for breakfast right? Of course, the chia seed ratio in my ground chocolate chia seed pudding is different as the ground chia seeds are more water-absorbent.
