  • 1 ½ cups almond milk
  • 5 dates, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 ½ tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup chia seeds
  • fruits and granola for topping


  • Warm milk in the microwave. (this is so the coconut oil doesn't solidify when you mix it in) Place all ingredients except chia seeds in large bowl and blend with a stick blender until well combined or pulse in blender.
  • Add chia seeds and stir by hand for 5 minutes. (this is important to do for a full 5 minutes as it gets the chia seeds beginning to gel as well as mix them throughout) Cover and chill in the refrigerator overnight. Top with fruit and granola when eating.


  • To avoid lumps, you need to stir the chia seeds for 5 minutes which helps distribute the seeds.
  • If you have some lumps, just stir with a fork before eating.
  • If the chocolate chia pudding is too thick, add a splash of milk and stir.
  • If you don’t like the tapioca consistency of chia seed pudding and want a smoother texture, just blend it all together in a blender of food processor until it is smooth.
  • Toppings ideas: granola, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, coconut flakes.
