How Do You Make My Chocolate Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding Recipe?

Step 1. Make your Chia Seed Pudding

Combine milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt in a jar. Stir it with a fork and allow it to sit and soak for about 5 minutes.

Stir it again with a fork to break up any clumps of chia seeds. Cover with a lid and store in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

You can add the cocoa powder and a tablespoon of maple syrup before you serve your chia pudding. Or, you can add them to the jar before you let it sit overnight. I like to make up a large batch of basic chia seed pudding and then add then flavor the desired servings with cocoa powder and an extra tablespoon of maple syrup.

Step 2. Make the Cream Cheese Greek Yogurt Mousse

Beat whipping cream for several minutes until stiff peaks form. You could also use premade whipped topping. I like to use the beaker and whisk attachment with my immersion blender.

Step 3. Prep the Granola

Make my delicious Healthy Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Granola at least one hour before layering this pudding so it has time to cool.
