Satisfy your chocolate craving with this Triple Chocolate Chia Pudding. It starts with some chia seeds, plant-based milk, and then three different types of chocolate!

3 cups of chocolate chia pudding

This is an old recipe from the blog that has been updated to make it even better!

Question: What’s better than one kind of chocolate?

Answer: 3 kinds of chocolate.

Which is exactly what this chia pudding is made with. That’s right. THREE kinds of chocolatey goodness loaded into one cup of chia seed pudding. If you want a little less chocolate, Snickers Chia Pudding or Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding might be right up your alley.

How healthy is chocolate chia pudding?

It’s about time I’ve added a chocolate chia pudding recipe to blog. Chocolate chia pudding is definitely one of the most popular ways to enjoy a chia pudding. I wanted to make this recipe a little more special than your average chocolate chia pudding though, so we’re adding in even MORE chocolate in the form of chocolate chips and cacao nibs. 

If you’ve never used cacao nibs before, they are literally just little bits of crushed up cocoa beans. They can be a little more bitter in taste, (since they have no sugar added to them) but they are uh-mazing sprinkled in chia pudding, oatmeal, granola…really on anything.

Cocoa nibs have great health benefits! They are extremely high in fiber, loaded with magnesium, antioxidants and is a mood booster (but let’s be honest, what chocolate isn’t a mood enhancer 🙂 ) Then on top of that you have all the benefits of chia seeds too. Chia seeds are extremely healthy and are packed with tons of nutritional benefits. They are:

  • Loaded with Fiber 
  • High in protein
  • Packed with Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Expand in liquid so they keep you feeling full and satisfied!

Chia seed pudding with coconut milk

I make this recipe with not only coconut milk, but also almond milk. This creates a wonderful, creamy flavor while remaining vegan! You can use either unsweetened or sweetened nut milks depending on how sweet you want this chia seed pudding. If you want to keep this recipe as unprocessed as possible, try making your own nut milk first with this almond milk recipe, and then use it to make your chocolate chia pudding!

How to make chocolate chia pudding

The process to make this triple chocolate chia pudding recipe is so simple, that it can be prepared anywhere from the night before, to an hour in advance, before you want to eat it.

The base ratio for making chia pudding is 1 part chia seeds to 4 parts liquid. Though depending on the type of liquid you use and your personal preference, you may want to add 5 or even 6 parts liquid. 

Here are the steps: 

  1. Mx the base chia pudding ingredients together
  2. Let sit for an hour to thicken (or overnight) 
  3. Mix in the chocolate chips & cacao nibs

Some notes on the recipe

One thing to note for this recipe is to use a high-quality cocoa powder! Cheap cocoa powder tends to be more bitter in taste and doesn’t have the same rich quality as a good quality cocoa.

You can also use any type of milk you like. Both plant-based milks and dairy milk will work based on your preference.

If you’d like to make this recipe keto-friendly, just substitute the maple syrup for a sugar-free sweetener like stevia, and make sure to use chocolate chips that are sugar-free.

This triple chocolate chia pudidng is my favourite to make when I feel a chocolate craving coming on. Which, let’s be honest, is most of the time. I like to prepare a batch of this chia pudding in advance (on a food prep day) and store it in the fridge. That way I have it ready to go for the week when I’m in need of some chocolatey goodness!
