  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, divided
  • 6 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey or sweetener of choice*
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa  powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • toppings of choice: fresh berries, chocolate chips, nuts


  1. In a high powered blender or food processor (affiliate link) add 1/2 cup almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup and blend until chia seeds are seemingly ground.
  2. Add remaining almond milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a resealable container, cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.


  • If you don’t have a high-powered blender your chia pudding might not get as smooth and creamy and will have the texture of regular chia pudding, similar to tapioca pudding.
  • Use stevia instead of maple syrup or honey for a low-sugar option.
