What is Chia Seed Pudding?

Chia seed pudding isn’t exactly pudding like you are accustomed to. It doesn’t require milk at all but does have a similar consistency to what you think of when you hear the word “pudding”.

But it’s more this the texture of a tapioca pudding than anything else. If you like the seedy but creamy consistency of tapioca pudding you will love chia seed pudding.

When chia seeds get wet they form a gel around themselves and get thick and gooey. It’s really quite phenomenal. They can be added to your drinks for a fantastic boost of fiber or be used to make a “pudding” like we are going to today.

What makes this Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Healthy?

Chia seed pudding is like any other recipe, it isn’t healthy just because it contains a healthy ingredient or too. You could load up a chia seed pudding with sugar and excess carbs and end up with something not much healthier than a store-bought pudding. (Ok so it wouldn’t be AS bad as those packaged things loaded with who knows what that you can’t even pronounce in it, but not much better.)

But this chia seed pudding is just loaded with good for your nutrients, fiber, and flavor! Plus if you are breastfeeding, like a lot of my audience is, this can fit perfectly into a breastfeeding diet plan.

The ingredients are rich in nutrients and the recipe contains tons of galactogogues known to increase breastmilk supply.

So, let’s look at some of these tasty ingredients because I cannot begin to describe how good for you this recipe is and how amazing it tastes at the same time!

Chia Seeds:

Chia seeds are loaded with fiber and are one of the few foods that contain an equal and substantial amount of both soluble and insoluble fibers. Meaning they help your digestion whether you get backed up or the opposite. Chia seeds also contain a lot of heart-healthy fats.


Dates are superstars for bone health, brain health, and digestive health. Dates are naturally very sweet. They contain a lot of fiber and antioxidants and are even known to ward off disease.

Cocoa Powder:

This is one of my favorite healthy ingredients to add (I may or may not have just finished a bowl of cocoa powder, coconut oil, and monk fruit) into recipes. It tastes so indulgent but it actually contains a powerhouse of nutrition. Once again… more fiber! And it also has low calories and tons of flavor.

Cocoa powder also is known to decrease inflammation, improve heart health, boost brain health, and help blood sugar levels just to name a few benefits. Remember I am NOT talking about chocolate sweetened with sugar. This is raw bitter cocoa.


Honey is naturally antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and full of antioxidants. Be sure you are getting raw unfiltered honey for these health benefits. Also, be sure to scoop your honey with a plastic or wooden utensil. It’s believed that metal will quickly destroy the beneficial enzymes in honey.

Protein Powder:

Ah, another of my favorites. I write all the time about the benefits of GOOD HEALTHY protein powders. I research protein powders often and here are the best of the best for breastfeeding moms or really anyone. Be sure to include a high-quality protein powder without yucky additives.

Hemp Seeds:

Hemp seeds contain a lot of protein and healthy fats that benefit your skin and hair. Additionally, hemp seeds are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3s.

I like making a long column of them along the top shelf on the right side of the fridge… but that’s me.

You make this recipe in a blender so it’s really hard to mess up and very easy to make multiple batches at once.

This breakfast is a win-win-win.
