    Chia pudding is one of my favorite things ever – much for the same reasons as you. I loved tapioca pudding as a child, and I love that chia pudding helps with satiation and digestion :)

    This almond butter chia pudding version is more indulgent, but I love this as a treat: http://www.citylifeeats.com/2011/04/april-in-raw-almond-mocha-chia-pudding.html

    I have also been obsessed with chia puddings. For some reason I alternate phases between chia and hemp seeds. Right now, I’m in a chia phase :) I hadn’t thought about using unsweetened choc. almond milk yet. I will try this!

    Oh my goodness! I can’t wait to try this with coconut milk and cacao powder, maybe a little honey for sweetness so my kids will go for it :) I think I might throw my seeds in the grinder first, one of my sons doesn’t like whole or pieces of nuts and I’m guessing these will qualify as nutty in texture.

    @Rachel, Rachel, I have tried making pudding with ground chia seeds and it tends to have a grainy texture.

    @Rachel, The chia seeds get soft like tapioca pearls once they’re soaked. I’ve tried grinding them first and the texture isn’t as smooth.

    I am excited to try this. Currently the only way I am using chia seeds is in my morning smoothies.

    I tried a chia seed pudding with coconut milk, but I don’t really love coconut milk. I do love almond milk, so I am sure I’ll love this recipe. I just bought 10 lbs of chia seeds for $2.75/lb. That’ll make a lot of pudding!!! :)

    OH i cannot wait to try this! Tapioca reminds me so much of my childhood as my mom would make it often.

    I didn’t know Salba was more nutrirional. It was the very first kind of chia seed I ever bought, before i even knew what it was(recommended by my nutrionalist). I think i will leave the bulk bin be next time and go back to the Salba.

    Thanks Amy. Looks like a YUM to me!

    @Christianne, I know…but since Salba is about 2 times more expensive I’ve been alternating between Salba and regular chia. I’ve frugal blooded…

    do you think this could be made with coconut milk rather than almond milk?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @susan, Yes, I do. You might need more liquid, though. Coconut milk is usually a bit thicker. It’s fine to add liquid as needed the next day.

    This looks so exciting, thank you!! So glad I recently stumbled upon your site! I have tried Salba briefly in the past, and now with diverticular problems need the extra emphasis on good fibers. Will also LOVE, I’m sure, and benefit from the healthy non-dairy creamy treat, which is so hard to find otherwise.

    @Amy, A good pudding, especially for its thick, savorable consistency. I used the powdered stevia for the first try, without vanilla, but will purchase the liquid for next time. Yes, it is pretty “compulsive”!

    I made this and it is VERY GOOD. I couldn’t find unsweet chocolate almond milk so I just used sweetened and left out the Stevia. I am not as strict with the sugar as you are though. YUMMY!! And you are so right about the texture! It is really neat (AND EASY!).

    Hi Amy,

    So I ran out and got the ingredients to make this (already an unsweetened choc/vanilla almond fan) and put it together last night, checked it this a.m. and it was thick on the bottom and still just as thin as yesterday on the top. I gave it a good stir and put it back in – will it eventually thicken all the way up? Thank you!

    Looking for a ‘family-sized’ recipe now. I don’t think the 1cup serving is going to be enough!

    Great recipe. great results Amy. Thanks again for another winner!

    Also will try the vanilla almond milk and

    coconut milk version :)

    Amy Reply:

    @Christianne, Glad you love it! I’m sure you can just triple it…I always add a little almond milk the next day. It seems the longer it sits, the thicker it gets.

    Why no tapioca? Too many carbs?

    @barbara, Tapioca Pudding is just tapioca…I love it but there’s really not much healthier about it. I don’t counted carbs but I know it’s one of those once-in-a-long-while treats. :)

    I love chia pudding. I’ve never made it chocolate though! Definitely need to try when I’m allowed to eat chocolate again.

    [Reply]

    Mary Reply:

    @Alta, How about carob powder to replace the chocolate, Alta? Using the vanilla almond milk, of course. Carob lacks the caffeine kick of chocolate, but the taste is very pleasingly similar, IMO.

    [Reply]

    Alta Reply:

    @Mary, I have been avoiding carob too – I can’t find a clear yes or no as to whether I can have it on this elimination diet. Carob has fructose and saponins, which I’m supposed to avoid. Hoping this is temporary – for carob AND chocolate. :) I love both! I did make a vanilla version with homemade almond milk and vanilla stevia last night though. Hoping to enjoy tonight!

    Has anyone tried to freeze this? Is it anything like ice cream??

    I LOVE Ice Cream, but it does not like me.. it would be awesome
    if this worked!

    Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Sarah Standley, I would let it soak then puree it before trying to freeze it. If I had to guess it would be rock hard once frozen and you’d have to let it sit out before being able to dig in. I think it would be more like ice milk than ice cream. Just a guess, though.
