  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Coconut Milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup or Agave Syrup (*optional)


In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and about 1/2 cup of the milk until smooth. Whisk in the remaining milk and vanilla extract. Taste the mixture. Depending on the type and brand of milk, and your taste buds, you may want to add the maple or agave syrup. Stir to combine all contents thoroughly.

Stir in the chia seeds. Cover and chill in refrigerator until thickened to a pudding-like texture. Overnight is ideal, but at least 3 hours is recommended.

Yields: 4 (1/2 cup) servings
