Ingredients

Instructions

  • Sift cocoa powder into a medium deep mixing bowl. Add maple syrup, vanilla extract and pinch of salt. Whisk to combine until smooth.
  • Add the coconut milk on top and whisk to combine. Pour the chia seeds on top of the mixture and whisk to combine one more time.
  • Cover and refrigerate until the mixture thickens, and becomes pudding like, at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
  • Enjoy with fresh coconut whip cream and berries, if desired.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 7 days in the fridge but best within 5 days of mixing.
Freezer Instructions: Did you know you can freeze chia pudding? You can freeze it for up to 3 months in individual servings. Use freezer-safe ziplock bags or small mason jar containers. To thaw, just place in the fridge overnight.
Sourcing: You can find chia seeds at all major grocery stores, usually located with the grains or with oatmeal.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of coconut milk, you can use any other plant-based milk or regular milk.
  • Replace maple syrup with honey, agave syrup, granulated sugar or another sweetener or choice.
Product Reference: I use these mini tulip shaped jelly jars when I make chia pudding. The chia pudding fills up about half the jar, leaving room for toppings.
