Overnight Chocolate Almond Chia Seed Pudding - Sound Shore Moms of Westchester

This delicious and protein-packed recipe is your new go-to!  Here’s what I love about it:


  • It’s super versatile. It can be a sweet breakfast, a light snack or a healthy dessert.
  • It pairs well with all types of toppings – salty or sweet!
  • It is easy to make and very forgiving. I struggle with strict recipes that have zero room for error. This is a great one to have fun with and experiment with substitutes.
  • It’s prep-friendly. The total prep time is 5 minutes and then the fridge does the work.
  • It can be made the night before but it can also be made an hour before – it can be “overnight” or you can whip it up in the morning. It’s all about your personal preference for the consistency and temperature.


1 ½ cups unsweetened original or almond milk

1/3 cup black or white chia seeds

¼ cup cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons powdered almond butter (less fat and calories than traditional almond butter!)

2-4 tablespoons agavé (adjust to your preference)

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon sea salt



Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine until thoroughly mixed.

Divide into 3-4 small mason jars and fill to about half to two-thirds to the top to leave room for topping.

Cover the jars in the fridge overnight or a minimum of an hour.

Serve chilled with your preferred toppings. Toppings we love:

      • Fresh or dried fruit
      • Nuts, seeds and granola
      • Coconut flakes
