Decadent, thick and smooth chocolate chia pudding that’s has minimal prep and is ready to serve in under 1 hour. This easy vegan dessert is perfect for serving at dinner parties for a light, healthy yet flavor packed end to a meal.
I’m delighted at how easy this chocolate mousse recipe is. I think this will become a quick chocolate fix favorite in my house! Chia seeds are a great ingredient to use in recipes like this because it is a natural thickener.
I’ve seen a lot of recipes that include the whole seeds in the pudding, but I must say, I’m not a huge fan of that. I don’t like the little chunks in the pudding (it reminds me of those tapioca balls in boba tea…I’m not a fan).
How To Make Chocolate Chia Pudding Without Lumps
Since I’m not a fan of adding the whole seeds to puddings and desserts I have come up with an easy way to solve the problem! I grind the chia seeds in a coffee grinder to make a fine powder and then, viola…problem solved, smooth pudding with no lumps!
For me, it’s the best way to make puddings or chia chocolate mousse because it gives a smooth, thick texture, it’s healthy and there’s no lumpy texture…win win.
Making Chocolate Chia Pudding
As well as being healthy, this chia chocolate mousse is incredibly simple to make. I mean 5 minutes prep time and then they are left to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Even with the chilling time this easy vegan dessert can be whipped up and ready in only 1 hour. It’s perfect for entertaining because of the minimal prep you can throw it together then pull it from the fridge when you’re ready to serve.
Better yet it makes a great last min sweet treat to satisfy your sweet tooth without the nasty ingredients. Simply blitz everything in a food processor and pour into ramekins.

Decadent, thick and smooth chocolate chia pudding that's has minimal prep and ready to serve in under 1 hour.
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp powdered coconut sugar
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp ground chia**
- 2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
- 1 tbsp powdered coconut sugar
Mix all ingredients together using a food processor or hand blender ( I used a hand blender). If you want to make peanut butter and chocolate pudding add 2 tbsp peanut butter and 1 extra tbsp of sugar (the saltiness of the peanut butter requires extra sweetener).
Place in a bowl or in individual ramekins and put in the fridge to solidify for about 30 minutes-1 hour. I used these 3 inch ramekins.
- **to grind chia seeds blend in a small coffee grinder. This will make a powder that will thicken the mixture and create a jelly-like pudding texture.
