Vegan Cocoa Chia Seed Pudding

In This Article

Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 3–8 hours

In just a few hours, the chia seeds absorb the liquid and thicken the mixture into a pudding-like consistency. They don’t dissolve, though; they hang around to add a seedy texture (and omega-3’s) to the pudding.

Since it’s gluten- and dairy-free, there are plenty of reasons to figure out a way to love it if it doesn’t come naturally. This version uses almond milk, but it works just as well with any plant-based milk (rice, oat, etc.). If you’re willing to take on more calories, coconut milk adds an extra creamy element (and coconut flavor) to the final result. Feel free to play around with the sweetener, too, and even add additional flavors, such as a pinch of ground cinnamon, cardamom or fresh fruit along with the cocoa powder.
