Cocoa coconut chia pudding

Fitness and nutrition · Jan 6, 2022

This delicious, low-sugar pudding makes a heart-healthy breakfast, snack or dessert. Chia seeds are packed with cholesterol-reducing soluble fibre and omega-3, an important fat that our bodies can’t make on their own.


  • 1/4 C cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 C coconut milk

  • 1/2 C chia seeds

  • ¼ C coconut flakes


  1. Place the cocoa powder, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, salt, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

  2. Add the coconut milk and whisk until smooth.

  3. Add the chia seeds and coconut flakes and whisk once more to combine.

  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 3-5 hours, until the mixture reaches a pudding-like consistency.

  5. Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola, nut butter or coconut whipped cream. Keep any leftovers covered in the fridge for 4-5 days, although the pudding tastes best when fresh.
