This is a terrific little breakfast (or snack) that you can make ahead of time and take with you to work/school. For those who are a little unsure of the texture of chia seed puddings this raw cacao (chocolate) one is a great introduction. This is super easy to make. I use the toppings to add sweetness.

Chia seeds are high in dietary fibre, protein, antioxidants, Omega 3, calcium and is gluten free. Who would have thought in such a tiny seed! Cacao is a rich source of magnesium, protein, iron, calcium and is a super antioxidant.

Recipe Ingredients (makes 4 serves):

  • 1.5 cups (360ml) milk of your choice (almond, coconut, soy etc)
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup cacao
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Greek yoghurt
  • Raspberries
  • cinnamon
  • Choice of nuts/seeds


  1. Place ingredients into a jar or container and mix.
  2. Let sit in the fridge for about an hour and stir thoroughly.
  3. If pudding is too thick and clumped together add a little more milk.
  4. Leave overnight or 6 hours in the fridge – this mixture can keep in the fridge for about 4 days.
  5. Once done, spoon into individual serves and top with Greek yoghurt, raspberries, cinnamon, nuts/seeds etc. *Topping with frozen berries means your pudding will stay cool until you get to work.
  6. The internet is filled with chia seed pudding recipes so have a browse and see what other healthy varieties you can make. Enjoy!
