  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Small Glass Jars or Bowls (120-160ml)



  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup dairy free milk (I used coconut) I used coconut milk
  • 1-2 tbsp full fat coconut cream optional but recommended
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp organic raw cacao powder depending on how chocolatey you like it
  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • Pinch of pink salt


  • Coconut yogurt
  • Organic strawberry jam and/or fresh diced strawberries
  • Drizzle of melted dark chocolate*


  • Add all pudding ingredients to a small mixing bowl. Whisk thoroughly until fully combined.**
  • Pour and dived among 3 glass jars or small bowls. Cover and place in the fridge to cool (30-60 minutes, or overnight)
  • When ready to eat, layer toppings into the jars/bowls. Serve and enjoy right away!


  • *For a tasty chocolate drizzle, melt 1/4 cup dark chocolate with 1 tsp coconut oil in the microwave for 30-40 seconds, mix well with a fork to ensure all chocolate pieces melt.
  • **If you don’t like the texture of chia seeds, you can add all chia pudding ingredients to a small high speed blender for a minute or so until seeds are fully blended. Then add this mixture to the jars and refrigerate. 
  • Coconut cream is optional but I recommend as it adds a nice creamy texture.
