Healthy Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

After making nearly a dozen chia seed pudding variations in my humble kitchen/healthy dessert factory (including Strawberry Vanilla, Ginger Peach, Blueberry Lemon Rosewater and Mango Cardamom), I noticed a pattern…  every single recipe had fruit!  Now, I’m not saying that’s not a bad thing, fruit is good for ya!  BUT, I was missing one crucial flavor:  CHOCOLATE 🍫

While fruit may be good for the body, chocolate is good for the soul.

And this Healthy Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding?  Well, it’s good for both your body and your soul.  Oh, and it’s pretty nice on those taste buds as well 😉

  1. Gimme ALL the chia seed pudding!! 🙂 I absolutely love all of the varieties you’ve been making!!

  2. Hi Jess
    How many servings does this make ? It says to put in individual jars but how many servings do we get from this entire recipe don’t want to eat 2 servings at one time lol! Thanks can’t wait to try 🙂

  3. When you say 7 packets of sweetener, how many teaspoons/tablespoons? I usually use bulk granulated sweetener (Splenda-please don’t judge! 😉 ) so I’m not sure how much to use in this yummy looking recipe.

    • I used Truvia for this recipe, which is 2x as sweet as sugar. According to Truvia’s conversion chart, 7 packets is about equal to 2 tbs of their spoonable version (or 5 tbs of sugar). I don’t have any experience with Splenda so I’d recommend checking out their conversion chart… or just go to a coffee shop and steal 7 packets of Splenda 😉

      • Thanks Jessica! With Splenda in the bulk box, 1 spoon of Splenda equals 1 spoon of sugar, so I guess I would use 5 tbs. For 3 servings, that sounds about right. I’ll see how it goes!
