What is a chocolate chia seed pudding?

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.

How to make chia seed 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 – you can use either black or white chia seeds, it’s up to you, they have the same properties.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – I love to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk from Almond Breeze. Indeed, this dairy-free milk contains no sugar added and just a few calories. It’s a great addition to a healthy breakfast.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Erythritol 

 How does a chia seed pudding taste?

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.

  • In a glass mason jar, add the chia seeds, unsweetened cocoa powder, erythritol, and unsweetened almond milk.

  • When ready to eat, serve in an individual serving bowl with extra unsweetened whipped cream, cocoa nibs and fresh berries on top.
  • Can be stored in the fridge in a glass mason jar for up to 1 week.

  1. Hi, I’m fairly new to keto and experimenting a lot. Do you think this would work with homemade hemp milk (vs. almond milk)? I’m trying to get into using more hemp for its nutritional properties. Thanks!

    • As mention in the recipe this recipe serve 8 people. Nutrition panel is for 1 serve – divide your full pudding into 8 bowls each one is a serve. It is about 1 /2 cup. I hope this help. XOXO Carine.

    • Hi Julie, I am not eating any sugar for 3 yeas now and stevia does the trick for me. The first 15 days going sugar free are pretty difficult because your taste buds are so used to it. But then it gets natural and after years you can’t barely eat sugar. Stevia is really a great solution as it doesn’t rise your blood sugar level. I hope you try the recipe! You will love it. Carine.

    • Hi Annemarie, thank you SO much for this lovely comment. I hope you enjoy the recipe too. See you soon on the blog xoxo Carine.

    • Hi Lisa, it is rich indeed but very healthy and conforting for breakfast. I am very addicted to this chocolate pudding, I had to share it here!

    • Hi Lis, Emma love the popsicles too I will share some pictures of them next time. Such a delicious healthy treat even during NZ winter!
