Easy Chocolate Chia Pudding

As a child, I loved those chocolate pudding snack pots that my mum would buy from the supermarket, especially when they were packed as a treat in my lunchbox for school. Unfortunately as I’ve gotten older, I came to the realisation that they were packed with sugar and other stuff that wasn’t really that healthy for me. Chia puddings are a nutritious and filling snack, or an easy quick breakfast. You can choose to blend this recipe if you like, which creates a smoother, more pudding-like texture, but it is just as nice left un-blended.

Easy Chocolate Chia Pudding


1 & 1/4 cups milk of choice

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder

3 tbs maple or rice malt syrup

1/4 tsp vanilla essence

Toppings of choice, optional (fresh or frozen fruit, chocolate or cacao chips, nuts or coconut)

  1. Combine all ingredients in blender and blitz until smooth. If not blending, mix together well in a bowl.
  2. Divide mixture between 2 small bowls, or 4 small snack pots if packing in the lunchbox.
  3. Place in fridge and allow to set for at least 3 hours. Serve with favourite toppings.

Make 2 large individual serves for breakfast, or 4 smaller individual serves for snacks/lunchboxes.
