Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chia Pudding


Creamy coconut milk, chia seeds and sweet strawberries are mixed together and topped with a drizzle of chocolate to make a decadent, yet healthier dessert. No one will ever guess it’s vegan and paleo-friendly!


  • 1 (13 oz) can classic coconut milk*
  • 1 cup strawberries, divided
  • natural sweetener of choice — maple syrup, honey or stevia (optional)
  • 6 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Place coconut milk, 1/2 cup strawberries, vanilla extract and sweetener of choice (if using) into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Place chia seeds in a large sealable container. Pour strawberry coconut milk mixture over chia seeds and stir well to combine. Cover chia coconut milk mixture and place in the fridge to set up for a couple hours.
  3. Bring chia pudding out of the fridge, stir well and portion into small bowls for serving.
  4. Meanwhile place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds or until chocolate has melted.
  5. Top each bowl of chia pudding with fresh slices of strawberry and drizzle chocolate on top. Enjoy immediately.


*Using full-fat coconut milk makes for a seriously rich and creamy pudding. For a lighter version, sub another non-dairy milk (like almond milk) for the full-fat coconut milk. Or use light coconut milk.
