Satisfy your chocolate craving with this triple chocolate chia pudding. It starts with some chia seeds and almond milk and then three different types of chocolate: cocoa powder, cacao nibs, and chocolate chips.
Whats better than one kind of chocolate?….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 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. As I was making this recipe I stood there thinking to myself…how can I make this even better?
Cue the cacao nibs…AND chocolate chips.
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.
They’re like little crispy chocolate sprinkles. Cacao nibs are also considered a superfood. They’re rich in magnesium and shown to be a big mood booster. But hey, I’m sure you already know that eating chocolate can put you in a good mood. My friend Buffy over at be good organics shares some great facts on cacao.
The cacao nibs in this triple chocolate chia pudding makes this pudding a little richer in flavour and adds a nice crunch. The chocolate chips add some more chocolatey flavour on top of that because you can never have too much chocolate! I use 70% dark chocolate chips in this recipe, but you can use any kind of chocolate chips you like.
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.
This is my favourite recipe 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!
Some notes on this triple chocolate chia pudding:
I use a mix of almond milk and coconut milk in this recipe, so the pudding comes out creamy and rich. You can use any of your favourite plant-based milk for this recipe.
I like the texture of this chia pudding as is, but if you want to make this into a smooth pudding, simply add it to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Just make sure to add in the cacao nibs and chocolate chips after you blend it if you want to have those crunchy pieces in there!
This triple chocolate chia pudding goes well topped with fresh fruit, (like strawberries, raspberries or bananas) nuts, shredded coconut, or more chocolate. Feel free to play around and add whatever toppings you like!
