Chef John's Chia Chocolate Pudding

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"If you're looking for a rich and decadent chocolate pudding then keep moving. As nutritious as this 'superfood' is supposed to be, you can't expect the same results substituting birdseed for eggs, butter, and cream. That said, if you're craving something sweet, relatively chocolaty, and comparatively healthful, then chia seeds may be a good option."

Delicious and relatively healthy! I have made this 3 or 4 times now. One time I used buttermilk and it tasted weird; don't do that.

Made this with unsweetened almond milk, 2 Tbsp. dark chocolate cocoa powder, and 3 packets of Stevia.

I loved it! I replaced regular milk with vanilla almond milk and excluded the chocolate covered hemp seeds because I did not have them. It was delicious without being overly sweet.

Welllll…. ive made a super quick version of this : ) Last years when I discovered what chia seeds do when they get wet, I started throwing them into many edible liquids. My favorite 'quick-gott...
