This Chocolate-Cherry Chia Pudding is a delicious and indulgent dessert that is surprisingly healthy too. It’s a light, low calorie treat that is perfect for a date night in, or a healthy snack option.  


Units Scale
  • 2 14 oz cans Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup Badia Organic Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Navitas Organic Cacao Powder or Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Wyman’s Frozen Cherries (dark, sweet & red tart), slightly defrosted
  • Toppings: Cacao Nibs, sliced almonds, coconut flakes


  1. Make the pudding base: In a large bowl, combine the coconut milk, cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla. Start the hand mixer on low and, once the mixture has come together a bit, bump it up to high and mix until well incorporated.
  2. Stir in the seeds: Add the chia seeds and mix until combined. To prevent lumps, stir a couple more times over the next 15 minutes.
  3. Refrigerate: Divide the chia pudding among 4-6 serving containers, cover, and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Assemble: Serve with sweet cherries, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, chocolate chunks or chocolate chips.


  • Tools: Using a large bowl and hand mixer works great for this recipe. 
  • Coconut Milk: If you want to mask more of the coconut flavor, just add a bit more cacao/cocoa powder. 
  • Powder: If you don’t have cacao powder, replace it with cocoa powder at a 1:1 ratio. 
  • Cherries: Fresh or frozen works. Be sure to cut them in half, because they are easier to eat that way.
