Extra-creamy and made completely in the fridge, this mocha-flavored raspberry chia seed pudding is the perfect way to get your healthy sweet tooth fix!
So I have a secret confession to spill, guys. It couples with the fact that I recently discovered a new-found love. Once again Sarah is 500 miles behind the food trends and is only at this moment (and like 10 moments yesterday and the day before) trying chia seed pudding for the first time.
And…I feel as though I should probably be eating it every.single.dang.second now to make up for lost time. Make sense? It sounded better in my head…
It was actually my mom who more or less pushed me on board the chia seed pudding train. A few weeks ago she texted me a video for chia seed pudding that she had apparently seen on Facebook and she then informed me that it looked insanely good and that needed to make it for
her us immediately.
I like to stay on my mom’s good side, so being the good daughter that I am, I came home and made Mom her chia seed pudding…
…and like the good daughter I am, I ashamedly nearly ate it all before she even saw it. Holy to the MOLEY, guys!!
I will freely admit to the fact that afterwards said pudding binge, my mom and I went a little crazy on Pinterest which involved lots of pinning of chia seed pudding recipes, much squealing of “OMG look at this one!” and frantic trips to the grocery store for more chia seeds.
And…this beauty of a recipe was born. And I’m currently dreaming up like 10 other versions because I’m obsessed. ♥
For those of you who have never tried chia seed pudding before, (and I sincerely hope there’s few of you) let me explain how it works. —>
- Chia seeds, milk, sweetener, and flavorings all get shook up in a jar.
- 4-hr to overnight chill time in the fridge.
- Hello, belly.
And that is seriously IT, guys! No cooking, no baking. Just waiting eternity for the chia seeds to soften and turn into the creamiest pudding ever.
Because you know I can never leave well enough alone, I totally had to kick things up in the flavors for this pudding. That may involve coffee. It definitely involves chocolate. And raspberries. Because Monday, yo!
Just a friendly warning from one pudding addict to a future pudding addict: you will be physically unable to keep a spoon out of this pudding.
Sorry, you’re welcome, and please enjoy. 😀

Oh this pudding looks so pretty, Sarah! I made chia seed pudding once a few years ago, so I definitely need to do that again! I love the chocolate and raspberry combo. Looks decadent but I love that it’s secretly healthy!
It’s so amazing right?? Almost like magic pudding. 😉 Thanks Gayle!

Rachel @ Bakerita says
Need need need! I’ve had chia pudding a couple times but never made it myself. This looks so creamy and dreamy and I’m loving those beautiful raspberries on top! 🙂
Girl, this pudding is SO up your alley! You’ve gotta try it asap! 😀
Like you, I am wayyyy behind on the chia seed pudding train. I just need to go make some right now so that I can also fall in love with it and eat it everyday (:
Right?? That’s my exact plan for making up for lost chia seed pudding time too! 😉
Ashley | The Recipe Rebel says
Okay so…… I’ve never had chia pudding. I actually just bought my first bag of chia seeds not that long ago! And adding them to my smoothies one teaspoon at a time isn’t going to get me to the bottom very quickly. This will definitely have to make the list!
Haha! I think you just found the solution for using up the rest of the bag! 😉 Thanks Ashley!
Denise | Sweet Peas & Saffron says
Now I’m totally intrigued…because chia seed pudding sounds so…weird to me, but you’ve totally convinced me that I need to try it! Especially if there is chocolate and raspberries involved 😉
YES you so need to give chia seed pudding the benefit of the doubt, Denise! I promise you will become as obsessed as I am. 😀
I’m so glad you posted this Sarah, because I love chia seed pudding! Looks delicious in its chocolate version! Pinning to try it!
Thanks for the sweet words and for pinning, Mira! xoxo

I’ve never had chia seed pudding before but this one is calling out to me. Raspberry mocha is a great combination, Sarah! I must try it.
Thanks Jen! You so need to try chia seed pudding!
I discovered chia pudding last year and LOVED it! I have yet to make chocolate, and I know that will probably be the best thing ever. This raspberry-chocolate version looks amazing, Sarah!
Isn’t it the best thing ever?? I’m a teensy bit obsessed. LOL. Thanks Marcie!
Jess @ Flying on Jess Fuel says
Oh my gosh, I looooove chia seed pudding! I’ve been sooo obsessed with it lately! I haven’t really tried a dessert version though, so I’m dying to try this one!!
It’s SO fun dessert-style, Jess! You need to try this one. 😉
Puja Darshan says
I have never tried chia seed pudding, rather I should say that I have never bought chia seeds.
But after seeing this recipe, now I am thinking of buying it and making this recipe.
BTW beautiful clicks Sarah!!!
Yes, you definitely need to try this one, Puja! Let me know if you do! 🙂
