Recipe: Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Breakfast Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

You might think this easy recipe is more fitting for dessert than breakfast, but when it’s this nutritious, it’s a great way to start your day. Prep the three-ingredient recipe the night before and you’ll be all set to go for the morning. The chia seeds will thicken the whole mixture into a pudding-like texture, plus, the base is so simple that you can add whatever mix-ins you’d like. I prefer fresh raspberries to put on top in the morning, but you can try anything from unsweetened coconut to granola.

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 2 serving(s)


  • 1 to 1.5 cups chocolate cashew milk (depending on desired thickness; the less milk, the thicker it will be)
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Optional Toppings
  • Blueberries or Raspberries
  • Slivered almonds
  • Whipped cream
  • Unsweentened coconut flakes
  • Chocolate chips


  1. Combine three ingredients in a bowl or glass and stir together until well mixed.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight until thickened.
  3. Serve with desired toppings.
