Coffee and chocolate chia seed pudding
Here you have it, another variation of chia seed pudding, coffee and chocolate chia seed pudding to be exact. This one is also amazing. If you like coffee you will like this one.
Last week I made the banana chia seed pudding which was the bomb. This week I experimented with another version. Since I got a huge bag of chia seeds I am getting really creative with it in the kitchen and so I made this coffee and chocolate chia seed pudding.
For this variation I used cacao nibs which I placed on a coffee grinder and pulverized. Cacao nibs are really high in antioxidants, that is why I used them. They are a little bit bitter but that is OK with me. If you don’t have cacao nibs you can use cacao powder instead. The coffee and chocolate chia seed pudding will still be as good.
For this variation I didn’t use my food processor. I just used a wire whisk to mix all of the ingredients and that was good enough.
I am going to keep coming up with other chia seed pudding variations. It is so easy and so healthy. Having this as a snack is also great. My kids actually think they are having a treat when in reality they are having something great. Next time I am going to make a pineapple and coconut flavored one. I love those two flavors together and since I have the ingredients on hand I think I will make it this week. I hope I don’t forget…
I hope you get to try this variation. It is truly sensational.
Place the cacao nibs in your coffee grinder or food processor and pulse until they are pulverized. Mine are not totally pulverized but good enough.

In a coffee grinder add the cacao nibs and pulse until pulverized. In a large mixing bowl add all of the ingredients. With a wire whisk, mix all of the ingredients until combined. Place the pudding in the refrigerator and serve when chilled, about 4-6 hours.
I am obsessed with chia seeds these days. Your pudding looks marvelous and I love the extra doses of chocolate protein.
This looks delicious. However, I hate coconut…..can I just sub in more almond milk as a replacement?
For sure. Thanks for visiting my blog!!
Oh this pudding looks so delicious!!
I am very intrigued by this recipe. Chia is such a amazing thing and this version with the coconut milk is amazing.
Excellent recipe! Easy, healthy and delicious – the perfect combination.
Great stuff :)
Just made this except substituted coconut water for coconut milk. Tastes great!
How long will this stay good in the fridge for?
You can leave it for up to 3-4 days I would say. Thanks for stopping by.
What type of protein powder do you use?
I normally use the one they sell at Trader Joes but I need to find a better alternative. I have used hemp protein powder sometimes but whole foods if far away from my house :-( I hemp protein powder is best though!!
hi, is there any replacement for the chocolate protein powder?
You can omit it or add some cocoa powder instead :-)
Um..whatttt?? This looks amaze. Need to try!
That seems just amazing! I keep in mind this recipe ;)
Oh my goodness…this just sounds fantastic! I’ll definitely be trying this for breakfast!
Wow…that looks good! But what brings the saturated fat to 102%? Should I replace the coconut cream?
Oh wow I didn’t see that. The nutrition facts label is wrong so I am correcting it right now. The saturated fat is actually 36% :-) Thanks for letting me know!
With 2tsp of cinnamon. Amazing
I know everyone is on a coconut oil kick right now, but people it has saturated fat as well and you still need to watch the numbers. A truly healthy recipe has less than 3 grams of saturated fat according to a program at our local hospital for heart healthy recipes. Just say-in….
Coconut oil saturated fat is not the same as the saturated fat from butter, cream, fried foods etc. It is made of medium chain triglycerides so you may want to do some research for yourself. Coconut oil is not bad for you!
I buy Chia powder rather than the seeds. I find it mixes so much easier into other foods. What is your take on this, do you find it makes a difference in recipes ?
To be honest i have never bought it before so I have not tried it. I suppose it will also still be fine specially for pudding and things of that nature :-)
Can’t wait to try it looks great! How many servings does this make?
Whoops Nevermind i found where it says 4
This looks awesome!! I have never made the Chia pudding before so this is new to me!! I am not yet into the coconut milk or almond milk so would regular milk work as well.
Yes. Regular milk would work just fine!
