Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chia pudding literally is the easiest to make! It’s also perfect to pack the night before (or the morning of when I want a mid-morning snack) and this particular flavor reminds me of those chocolate pudding cups I snacked on growing up!

Chia seeds may be tiny but they pack a punch when it comes to fiber, Omega 3 fatty acids (for happy hearts) and plant-based protein. Chia pudding doesn’t have a whole lot of carbs so I tend to pair it with a piece of fruit or a breakfast muffin for a well-rounded meal or snack!

Want to spruce it up a little bit? Add in some shredded coconut and a splash of coconut extract!

The Stuff

  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons of sugar (you can also use honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 cup of milk

The Steps

  1. Combine all ingredients in an 8oz mason jar, bowl, or Tupperware container
  2. Shake or mix thoroughly
  3. Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or overnight
  4. Top with fruit (and whatever else sounds good) or enjoy as is!

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @bitebetanutrition on instagram.
