Nothing says Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion more than a chocolate covered strawberry. Try this healthy spin on the classic treat with this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chia Pudding.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 23 tablespoons cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder*
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Strawberry filling:


  1. Combine all of the chia seed pudding ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a sealed container and place in the fridge overnight, or for at least 3-5 hours until the mixture has thickened to a pudding-like texture.
  2. At the same time, slice the strawberries and toss with the coconut sugar to coat. Cover with saran wrap and place in the fridge to macerate (aka get the juices flowing!). Strawberries can be left in the refrigerator until the chia seed pudding is ready to serve.
  3. To assemble: lightly mash the strawberries to resemble a jam-like texture. Pour half of the mashed strawberries in the bottom of 2 serving bowls or jars. Sprinkle with sliced almonds and top with half of the chia seed pudding, distributing evenly. Distribute the remaining mashed strawberries among the 2 jars and top with the remaining sliced almonds and chia seed pudding. Garnish with extra sliced strawberries and almonds. Grab a spoon and enjoy!


*some cacao and cocoa powders are stronger than others. I used Navitas Naturals cacao powder and went with 2 tablespoons. Adjust to your taste preference. [br]*If you’re not a fan of the tapioca-like texture of this pudding, you can blend to a smooth consistency in the blender or food processor once the chia seed pudding has thickened, just before serving!
