Recipe Directions

  • 1. Blend cashews and water until nice and smooth.
  • 2. Add everything else (except the chia seeds). Blend again.
  • 3. Place the chia seeds in a bowl. Add the blended mixture. Stir thoroughly to ensure the chia seeds are well distributed.
  • 4. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 1 hour - ideally longer). (The purpose for refrigerating is to allow the chia seeds to plump up over time. They will increase approximately 10 times their size! And they will thicken the pudding in a few hours.)
  • 5. Eat in the morning or for dessert in the evening! Stir well again before eating.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Another chia pudding recipe for you! And this one has a how-to tutorial to match :)

This is a delicious raw chocolate chia pudding recipe. If you get the ratios right, it tastes like melted chocolate ice cream.

If you have trouble finding chia seeds in your local community, try requesting that your local health store bring them in. They can also be ordered online here.

Can this be made with a nut other than cashew, almond or peanut? (I'm intolerant to them.)

Ahhh! This was so tasty!! The only change I made is I used walnuts, as I didn't have any cashews. Since it did in fact taste like chocolate ice cream, I decided to put it in the freezer for 20 minutes. Yummy, yum!! Thank you for sharing!

I love this pudding! Do you think fresh mint would be nice in it? If so, would you blend it in the pudding? Thanks for all your delicious raw recipes - they always turn out great!

You could try blending the mint directly in with everything else. Not sure how strong you like your mint flavor, but start small! Let me know how it turns out!

Hi Anna, I'm sure you've eaten your pudding by now! Did you enjoy it? It sounds like it thickened up a bit, so that’s good! You didn't do anything wrong if it's still a bit runny. This happens.

This is so delicious! Tastes like melted chocolate ice cream. My husband and 3 year old love it too. I also love the chocolate mousse, so rich and smooth.
Thank you so much for these recipes, it's great how simple they are to make.

I was wondering if there was something else I could use instead of cashews?

Hi Eggy!

The cashews are there for creaminess. I suppose you could use a banana instead - but it will alter the flavor.

This pudding is delicious, I added 3 tbsp of hemp hearts to make it even healthier

Hi, I love those ideas for most of your recepies (I don't like mashrooms :) ). I was just wondering is it possible to replace cocoa powder in all your recepies with carob powder - unit for unit? Have you ever tried it?
Thank you

Hi Kristina,

Yes, you can use carob instead of cacao. I don't use carob very often myself, but when I do use it I use this ratio (since carob has a weaker flavor than cacao):

For every 1 part cacao I use 1.5 parts carob :)

can you replace the chia seeds with ground flax meal?

Hi Kat, No sorry, you cannot replace the chia seeds with ground flax! This is because the chia seeds plump up like tapioca, whereas flax seeds do not do the same thing :( sorry
