  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 ¼ cups nut milk almond or cashew
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or sub vanilla bean powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

To serve:


  • Sift the cacao powder over a glass bowl to remove clumps.  Whisk in the salt, vanilla extract, maple syrup, cacao powder, and 2 cups nut milk.
  • Add the chia seeds to the bowl and whisk to combine.  Cover and refrigerate for 1.5 hours until the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid.
  • Add Chia Pudding to a blender and add 1/4 cup nut milk. Blend until smooth and thick.
  • ** Taste the mixture to see if it's to your liking. If you want more of a chocolate flavor, add 1 tbsp at a time. If you need more vanilla flavor, add 1/4 tsp more. If you want more sweetness, add 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup at a time.
  • Transfer the mousse to serving dishes and refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight. Serve with preferred toppings: pomegranate seeds, coconut whip cream, cacao nibs, and coconut flakes.


Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
