Recipe: Chocolate Chia Raspberry Pudding


From the Vitality Food Feature ‘WINTER COMFORT FOODS‘.

Pudding for breakfast? Sure! This pudding is healthy, nutritious, anti-inflammatory, and a fun way to start the day.


  • 4 Tbsp whole chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or alternative beverage of your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 3 Tbsp hemp hearts
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or thawed frozen)
  • Few drops of organic vanilla extract

1) Place all ingredients into a sealed container that you can shake. Shake vigorously to mix ingredients well.

2) Let sit for at least 10 minutes until the chia seeds absorb the liquid and take on a gel or pudding consistency (if the pudding is too thick, add more coconut milk). Stir.

3) Add your favourite topping, such as coconut flakes.
