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.

Unbelievably AWESOME, i blended 70% of the chia for thickness and kept 30% for a bit of chew!
Only trouble i have to not to overeat! I divided into 4 serves. Had to put chains on the fridge to stop seconds. Haa!
Thanks!!

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

Hello! Thank you so much for all your yummy recipes. I made this pudding last night. I have a vitamix and followed your video directions to a T (except I did use a vanilla bean). The taste was just as you said...melted chocolate ice cream! I let it sit overnight and went to have a bowl for breakfast. My question is this: should the consistency be thick like regular pudding or more batter like? Mine was still like a thin pancake batter. Very soupy. There were still crunchy chia seeds it it too. My chia was several months old. Could it have gone bad? I did what you said and stirred a little batter in first to chia and thoroughly mixed it before adding the rest. Oh we'll I'm drinking it with crunchy chia! Still yummy! But I'd love your feedback on what might have gone wrong. Thanks.

Hi Barbara, perhaps the chia seeds weren't mixed in properly? I have never had crunchy chia before :) I've never had chia seed go bad on me.

Definitely should be more like a slightly runny pudding - halfway between regular pudding and badder.

Sounds like something was a bit off with the chia seeds if I had to guess :)

I'm thinking of trying to do this for breakfast some day, and my question is: how long can I have in in the fridge after I made it? I thought if I do the whole recipe and leave it in the fridge one more day? It sounds like it's enough food for two breakfasts? :-) Hugs from Sweden!

Hi Terese, this is great for breakfast. This keeps really well in the fridge for about 3 days. Just stir up before serving.

This could probably do two or three breakfasts - I would also add some other stuff to it for breakfast, like maybe some sliced bananas or sliced or spiralized apples, etc. to builk it up a bit.

Hope this helps!

thanks for the best chia pudding recipe yet! i do have to say, tho, that i had to use twice as much chia seeds to get a thick-enough pudding. ...

Hi Jaimie - thanks for your note. As a result of yours and other comments I have now increased the recommended chia seed amount from 1/3 cup to half a cup. Thanks all for your feedback, you're what makes this place great!

I am so bummed! This pudding turned out too chunky and not smooth at all. :( By the taste of it I know this pudding could be very delicious. Any idea why it's not smooth?

Hi Becca, if you don't like the little chia chunks there is a simple solution... just blend the chia seeds in with the mixture instead of reserving them. I like the little lumps, but if you want it smooth that's the solution :)
