My two favorite flavors are coming together as one in this delicious mouth watering chia pudding recipe. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo friendly!

 


 

Just like overnight oats, chia pudding was an acquired taste for me but once after a few tries, I was hooked. Now I just can’t stop eating it! Not to mention that chia seeds are a superfood so the health benefits are well, pretty freaking super!

Chia seeds are naturally high in fiber, protein, omega-3, omega-6, calcium, copper, potassium and zinc!

 

 

This pudding recipe is so simple to make and takes just a couple of minutes to prep!

Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding so healthy you can eat it for breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp agave
  • 2 tbsp all natural peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Place the chia seeds, cocoa powder and protein into a mason jar and give it a swirl just to combine the ingredients. Add in the almond milk and agave. Put the lid on tight and shake until completely mixed. Place the jar into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Remove from the fridge and separate chia pudding into 4 serving bowls and layer with peanut butter.

  1. As I commented to you on Instagram, this recipe came at the perfect time – thank you again for sharing it! Hope this isn’t a dumb question; but how long will the 4 portions last in the fridge?

      Thank you, Liz!!! You are so sweet! I usually eat mine up with 3-4 days. I’ve never kept them longer than that.

      • Oh yes, definitely – I figured 3 days, but just wanted to ask to make sure šŸ™‚ Thank you again! And I have 3 flavors of PEScience in my pantry, including the one you used, so I’m all set to make these soon. Always appreciate your awesome recipes.

        • P.S. – Last comment, I promise! (I hope I can promise, haha). Since I have a lot of maple syrup on-hand (just purchased some from a local maple farm, at the farmer’s market), can I use that instead of the agave nectar? I hate to be one of those commenters, asking about substitutions; but since it’s what I have on-hand, I wanted to check.

            Absolutely!!! And no worries about all the comments! Please, comment away! šŸ™‚

          • Okay, I lied – back with another comment/question. Even though I DO like chia seeds, I think I might prefer that this pudding have a smooth texture… would I totally screw up the recipe if I blended all the ingredients as a last step, before putting into jars and chilling in the fridge?

            I’ve seen some recipes that blend the chia until smooth before placing in the refrigerator but I’ve never actually tried it. It should work though šŸ™‚ let me know how it goes!
