Chef John's Chia Chocolate Pudding

Rated as 4.59 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."

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.

It is unbelievably delicious! I admit that I was not expecting that it would be that good. I made half of the recipe, so I could have a good daily portion of chia and used 3 packages of sweeten...

This is the first chia seed recipe I have made that I actually like and I'm not a big chocolate fan! I will make this again. Mine set up fine but I made sure to whisk and let it sit like the ins...

Easy and tasty!
