Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding


Chocolate Macadamia Nut Milk:

  • 1 c macadamia nuts
  • 3 c water
  • ½ c pitted dates, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp high quality dark cocoa powder or cacao nibs
  • Stevia for added sweetness (use your taste buds to judge; I added almost a pack)
  • dash salt


  • 6 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 c chocolate macadamia nut milk


Chocolate Macadamia Nut Milk:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a VitaMix for a few minutes, till very smooth. You CAN strain through a nutmilk bag, but you definitely don’t have to. If you do strain it, you’ll get about two cups liquid; if you don’t, you’ll have about double. Not straining will yield a richer pudding.


  1. Add chia seeds to the nut milk. Stir. Come back in five minutes, and stir again. Repeat this until the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid, and the pudding has a thick and creamy texture (if it’s runny at all, just add another tablespoon or two of chia seeds).

  2. To make this a peppermint chocolate pudding, just add ¼ tsp peppermint extract to the whole mix (more if you want a mintier flavor).
