Five-Minute Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding [Vegan!]

sneak peak: easy, quick and with minimal washing up - this recipe for chocolate chia pudding will impress, whether being served to a crowd or just for one

This is a deceptively easy pudding and it tastes like chocolate cake mix or brownie batter so really that should be all the convincing you need to make it.

Unlike a lot of chia seed puddings, this one thankfully does not have that questionable frogspawn-like texture, because it gets blended up into a gorgeously smooth, creamy, silky chocolate gloop instead.

It's perfect for enjoying on the sofa with a nice cup of tea to go with it, but it is equally happy in fancy crockery being served to dinner guests with a little sprig of redcurrants or a neatly sliced strawberry on top.

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
serves 1, scale up for more
vegan, gluten free if you use GF non-dairy milk
takes five minutes, plus chilling time


1 tbsp chia seeds (3 tsp)
1/3 cup oat milk (4 tbsp, 60ml)
1 heaped tbsp cacao powder
2 dates (if they're particularly dry, soak them in a little bowl of hot water for a few minutes first)
teeny pinch salt
teeny splash vanilla


1. Blend.
2. Fridge.
3. Eat.

Or to expand slightly:

1. Add all the ingredients to a small blender like a nutribullet (it will just get lost in a big one, unless you're making loads) and whizz until it's one big chocolatey goo. I've said five minutes, but realistically this takes about one at most - I know right, magic.
2. Pop into a ramekin/glass/dinky teacup or other serving dish of choice, and leave to set in the fridge for a while - at least half an hour is best, a bit longer is better - all day is also good.
3. Remove from the fridge half an hour or so before serving so it's not completely ice-cream-headache freezing when you eat it, top with anything you like (those aforementioned redcurrant sprigs?) or leave as is, and tuck in!
