Ingredients

  • 3 tbsps. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsps. chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tbsps. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • pinch salt optional
  • chocolate shavings for garnish
  • a handful of fruits frozen or fresh for topping

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic food wrap and leave it at room temperature to thicken, for about 1 hour.
  • Once it has thickened, stir together again, and add a little bit more milk if needed.
  • Chill in the fridge for a few hours.
  • When ready to serve, add fruits.
  • If desired drizzle some extra syrup or honey on top of the fruits.
  • Garnish with chocolate shavings.
  • Store chia pudding refrigerated in an airtight container or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Store without fruits for about 1 week. If stored with fruits consume the same day.

Notes

  • Store chia pudding refrigerated in an airtight container or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Store without fruits for up to 5 days. If stored with fruits consume the same day.
  • Feel free to swap the maple syrup for honey if you prefer.
  • Chia seeds don’t have any taste to them on their own and take on the flavor of the liquid it is in. In this case, your chia pudding will taste like almond thanks to the almond milk.
  • If you’re not a fan of almond milk, feel free to use cashew milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or dairy milk.
  • If you don’t have chocolate shavings, try cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips.
  • You can easily scale this recipe up to multiple servings.
  • Feel free to change up the toppings. Try using dried fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, hemp hearts, shaved chocolate, a pinch of cinnamon, nut butter, and more!
  • If you don’t like the texture of chia seeds, you can add everything to a blender and blend it up.
