Chocolate pudding for breakfast? Absolutely! My raspberry chocolate Chia pudding is made with only four ingredients and garnished with your favorite toppings. It’s a perfect no fuss healthy breakfast.
Are Chia seeds healthy?
I’m a recent enthusiast of Chia seeds and love them in my homemade strawberry chia jam and as an addition to my granola.
Chia seeds are a superfood high in fiber and rich in omega 3s, antioxidants and minerals. They keep you full for hours and and did I mention they are gluten-free.
Left to soak in liquid the seeds act as a pectin and thicken after several hours.
Chia seeds are a great way to create a tasty pudding that’s delicious and healthy with no guilt.
Even the kids had no idea they were eating something that was good for them. “Yum…this is chocolate pudding?”
This tapioca- like pudding is packed with protein and can be made easily in a few minutes and stored overnight for a hearty breakfast that is as easy as grabbing it out of the fridge.
For this recipe I picked up several individual servings of 100-calorie Greek yogurt.
I chose raspberry because I love the flavors of chocolate and raspberries together.
And because I chose a flavored yogurt there was no need for any added sugar. It was perfectly sweetened.
The possibilities are endless when making Chia seed pudding. As long as you follow the simple ratio of 1/4 cup of Chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid you’re in good shape.
Create your own pudding by using almond milk instead of milk. Switch up your sweeteners.
Use honey, maple or agave syrup. I think fresh fruit adds the best kind of sweet flavor.
Enjoy this raspberry chocolate Chia pudding and serve it tomorrow for breakfast or dessert.

I love chia pudding!! Gonna try this out!
I wonder if this would work using dairy free milk and yogurt alternatives? I’ll try it out and let you know how it goes. Thanks for the recipe!
Yes…I think any kind of liquid would work. Let me know how it goes. Thanks Elizabeth.

This Raspberry Chocolate Chia Pudding looks delicious! I love the combination of Raspberries and Chocolate.
Thank you so much Michele…love the chocolate and raspberry combo too. 🙂
This looks great! How many calories are in half a cup serving?
Thanks Helen. There are about 150 calories in each half to three-quarter cup serving before adding granola, chocolate chips and raspberries. Using skim milk will also cut the total calories. The brand of yogurt that I used had 80 cal per serving. Good luck and enjoy every bite ?
