Raw Vegan Dessert Recipes: Chocolate Chia Pudding

Here is one of my favorite chocolate vegan and gluten-free dessert recipes containing 1/2 tablespoon of organic raw coconut oil per serving. Enjoy this delicious raw , vegan and gluten-free chocolate pudding as a dessert or pre-work out fuel.

This recipe is strangely addicting! It takes less than 5 minutes to assemble. The ancient Aztec chia seed is one of the richest natural whole food sources of Omega 3 fatty acids and dietary fiber.

(Serves 4)

  • 2 cups unsweetened organic coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons raw coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder or organic unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a container; whisk well and cover tightly. Place covered container in fridge 2-3 hours or overnight. Chia seeds will plump up. Serve with fresh seasonal fruit (such as berries, diced peaches, sliced bananas, or pomegranate seeds).
