I love sweet puddings – but unfortunately, sugar does not love me. Sugar leaves me feeling foggy headed, lethargic and dulls my spirit. Not to mention the fact that sugar has been linked to countless health related illnesses, which is why I look for healthier ways to satisfy my sweet tooth!

This Chocolate Chia Pudding is so rich and tasty that you won’t even notice that it is completely free of nasty refined sugars. (Did someone say guilt free pudding?) Yes!!! Even my sweet toothed man gave it a resounding ‘YUM!’

And the best part? It is quick and easy to make and tastes amazing. Try it out and let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your comments below.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Vegan

(Serves 1)


2 tbsp Chia seeds
1/2 cup of almond milk (preferably home made – otherwise, organic unsweetened)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp frozen berries
1 tsp coconut flakes
1 tsp nut butter
1 tsp flax seed oil
1 tbsp organic maple syrup


Mix chia seeds with almond milk and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the chia seeds clumping together.

Add cacao powder and fold into the mixture until it has dissolved. Stir in the flax seed oil and nut butter.

Top with berries, maple syrup and sprinkle with coconut flakes.

Try not to inhale it in one! ūüėČ
