This Healthy Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is an easy meal prep recipe for breakfast or a nutritious snack! It’s packed with health benefits and full of chocolate goodness!

What You Will Need:

  • Milk of choice – I usually use almond or oat milk when making this recipe.
  • Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 and fiber.
  • Cacao Powder – This plant-based superfood is less processed and a healthier alternative to cocoa powder. Cacao has a delicious, rich chocolate taste and is high in iron and magnesium.
  • Honey – I always purchase local honey for it’s healing properties and ability to help fight seasonal allergies. Raw honey boosts immunity, aids in digestive and gut health, and is full of antioxidants.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Optional Toppings: nuts, shredded coconut, and berries

Let’s Make Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding!

The health benefits of this Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding are amazing, but one of my most favorite reasons to make this is because it is so quick and easy! I can meal prep this chia seed pudding for an entire week in less than five minutes. Here’s how:

I make this recipe in mason jars, but any container that seals will be fine. First, I decide how many servings I want to make and get out that many mason jars. I go in order and fill each mason jar with milk. After the milk is in each jar, go down the line and pour in the chia seeds.

Next, add the cacao powder and vanilla. Finally, add the honey. I add the honey last so it doesn’t sink straight to the bottom and get stuck at the bottom of the jar. Cover the container with a tight fitting lid and shake until mixed. You can also stir the ingredients after shaking if it looks like it’s not mixed well enough.

Put the jars in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow the chia pudding to set. You can eat the pudding ‘as is’ but I like to top mine with raspberries and shredded coconut.
