For The Pudding:

  • 1 1/2 cups original almond milk
  • 6 dates pitted
  • 1/3 cup black chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For The Topping:

  • 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp real maple syrup
  • Optional: fresh raspberries and/or mint leaves for garnish


  1. Add the milk and dates to a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combined the blended mixture with the chia seeds, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  3. Cover the mixing bowl with saran wrap or (more preferably) pour into 4 individually-sized air-tight containers and place in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 5-6 hours, to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid.
  4. When ready to eat, make the topping by combining the greek yogurt and maple syrup in a small mixing bowl.
  5. Place a dollop of the topping on each serving and garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves, if desired.
