Why You Need This Recipe
- Chia pudding is great for meal prepping, as you can make it up to 4 days in advance.
- This recipe uses dairy-free milk and is perfect for gluten-free and dairy-free diets.
- Chia seeds are full of nutrition, including omega-3 fatty acids and minerals.
There are a gazillion chia pudding recipes on the web, but that’s probably because it’s just so versatile. I like this version because it tastes like a chocolate-covered strawberry!
The basic ingredients for making chia pudding are very basic. For this dairy-free version, I like to use unsweetened almond milk mixed with the chia seeds. Maple syrup adds a little bit of sweetness, without being overly sweet.
And, of course, cocoa powder or cacao powder is included to give that decadent chocolate flavor.
Combine the ingredients for your chia pudding (except for the strawberries and chocolate chips) in a bowl or a blender.
As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.
Divide the chia pudding mixture between two jars or bowls, and top with sliced strawberries and chocolate chips.
Serve immediately, or chill and serve later.
Yes, but your chia pudding will end up tasting very rich and the nutritional information on my recipe will not be accurate.
I like using an organic chia seed.
Prepared chia pudding will keep in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
