Dark Chocolate Blended Chia Pudding is a Snack Pack cheat that is good for you and will bring you childhood memories at first bite! If you’re timid about the texture of traditional chia pudding, try my Blended Chia Pudding and you’ll fall in love!
I’m in a childhood memories kinda mood. Maybe because it’s back-to-school time and beautiful, alluring new school supplies are all over Target. Give me a heart attack! I have absolutely zero control when it comes to new school supplies.
So, I have been resisting the desire to load up my cart with those traditional Snack Pack pudding cups, because man oh man I LOVE me some double chocolate pudding packs. Gahhhh. Drown me in pudding. [but I think that would be a terrifying way to go, so please don’t]
Anyways! So, I’m making you some “adult” pudding. And it’s so easy, it’s silly. If you’re familiar with chia pudding, that’s what we’re making here. If you don’t like the texture (I actually like it, so call me crazy), then you’re going to be SO in love with me when you see that blending it turns your pudding into a fake-out pudding you’d never guess wasn’t made like traditional pudding.
And, if you don’t believe me that this tastes like the best pudding you’ll ever make, just ask my husband, who has no clue that his dessert last night was actually made from chia seeds. Ultimate success.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 2 Tbs. cocoa powder
- 2 Tbs. coconut sugar (or sugar of your choice)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- In a bowl, combine the ingredients and whisk together (really whisk here, it’ll take a little while to get the cocoa to really blend into the milk).
- Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight.
- Once the mixture has set, pour the whole thing into your blender. Blend until smooth.
- Serve up your pudding in cups. If you’re nice, add whipped cream (I used Rice Whip) and sprinkles and cocoa nibs. Be nice. Enjoy!
