Unsweetened Chocolate Chia Pudding

Blub. blub, glug.  Mingus pours the Unsweetened chocolate soymilk, himself.


“What are those?”  Despite all the times I’ve given him Chia pudding, he doesn’t recognize raw Chia seeds


Fffft.  They slide into the jar.


ZZtt, Zzzt, Zttt.  The cap goes on.


A moment of wild shaking… and the precious concoction is revealed.


His appetite won’t wait.  Slurp, Slurp.  


In the time it takes Mingus to drink down half of the jar, the pudding begins to congeal.

He chirps, “It was like chocolate milk, but now it has the same texture as ketchup!”

Hearing “ketchup”, Beluga comes running to claim his share.  I stand aside and make another set of puddings to put in the fridge for tomorrow.


Unsweetended Chocolate Chia Pudding
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
There are so many variations of chia pudding and sometimes it’s worth remembering how simple it can be. Personally, I love using almond milk and a dash of cinnamon, but the kids love chocolate, so chocolate it is!
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Chocolate Soymilk
  • 3 Tbs Chia Seeds
  1. Exact measurements aren’t necessary. Just pour the unsweetened chocolate soymilk into a jar.
  2. Add a little pile of chia seeds, any color will do.
  3. Then screw the cap of the jar on tight and give it a very big shake.
  4. Store the jar in the refrigerator overnight. The following morning, afternoon or evening, take it out and eat it right out of the jar.

    I love chia pudding! Haven’t tried it with chocolate soymilk yet and it looks like I’m missing out so I better make this soon! :)

    What a wonderful idea! I have almond milk and chia seeds right now in my house. LOVE the cinnamon idea, too. I’ll most definitely be making this. :)

    PS – I love your photos. The light is simply lovely in them and your perspective is cool, too.

    I tried your suggested almond milk/cinnamon combo and it was tasty! Took a little longer to set up – more like 24 hours but my chia seeds aren’t fresh so maybe that’s it. Either way, it was a fantastic treat. :)

      Yes – if you want your pudding thick, then 24 hours is more accurate. We typically eat it on the runnier side so that it’s still drinkable.

        Ah, that’s good to know. It was good either way! :)
