Chocolate Chia Pudding paleo recipe

Chocolate Chia Pudding

A couple of years ago my mother-in-law (MIL) asked my to make her a healthy chocolate chia pudding recipe. Although it took some time, I now have one. My MIL loves that my recipes are the easiest out there, and this Chocolate Chia Pudding has only six ingredients –chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla stevia, water, and salt.

I use stevia rather than maple syrup or honey as I am eating a lower-carb diet these days which has helped quite a bit in restoring my health. If you are not a fan of stevia feel free to use maple syrup or honey instead to sweeten this healthy dessert. I haven’t tried it myself so I’m not exactly sure how much sweetener you would need in place of the stevia. It would also depend on how sweet you like your desserts to be –I would guess a tablespoon or two would suffice.

Chocolate Chia Pudding
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Combine blended coconut milk, water, and chia seeds in a jar and shake well
  2. Add cacao powder, stevia, and salt and shake well
  3. Refrigerate overnight to let chia seeds soften and absorb liquid
  4. Serve

For this recipe, it is important to blend the coconut milk prior to combining it with the other ingredients. This way you will have a smooth and creamy pudding, rather than one with little lumps of coconut milk in it.

If you’re not a chocolate lover try my regular chia pudding recipe.
