  • 1/2 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 9 whole dates (dried and pitted)
  • optional toppings: fresh raspberries, sliced almonds, bananas, strawberries, shaved dark chocolate


  1. In a large bowl, add coconut milk and chia seeds. Whisk until combined.
  2. Next add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and whole dates. Mix until slightly combined.
  3. Cover bowl securely and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. (it is better if you let it sit overnight)
  4. Remove pudding from refrigerator and spoon into blender. Puree until smooth.

If your pudding comes out to liquidy you can add more chia seeds to thicken it up, if it is too hard just add more coconut milk or almond milk to thin it out.
