I had been making Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding this fall (to follow the Chia Hemp Breakfast Pudding I made this summer), but as we approached Christmas I wanted something with slightly different spices.  I finally put my thoughts together on how this recipe should work and made this pudding last night for this morning’s breakfast – yes, a little late for Christmas, but so delicious.

It was so easy, took under five minutes to make, and tastes rich and delicious.  I think this version is full-bodied and the creamiest I have made!

Special thanks to Frugal Babe and Kristen’s Raw who shared their great buys from The Raw Food World (they have a special running now – 18% off food using coupon code HOLIDAY18).  I joined the fun and bought a 5lb bag of chia seeds (and lots of other raw goodies!).

Chocolate Gingerbread Chia Pudding (Dairy-Free)

  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2T chia seeds
  • 2T maple syrup (sweeten to taste)
  • 2T raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon*
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger*

Add all ingredients to bowl and wisk well. (I add all my ingredients to a medium sized glass Pyrex container (with lid), wisk in the container, and refrigerate.)

Refrigerate overnight for best results.

As you can see, we LOVE chia puddings.  Have you used chia before? What is your favorite way to use them?

Happy New Year!
