You are going to love this Almond Joy Chia Pudding. It’s dairy-free, and only required 6-ingredients! You can make it ahead of time and serve them to guests as a grab and take dessert.



2 1/2 cups coconut milk

4 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips (mini preferred)  + more for garnish

3 tbsp maple syrup

1/3 cup slivered almonds

2 tbsp coco powder, sifted


In a mixing bowl, add the coconut milk, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Stir all the ingredients until well-combined, set aside.

In another mixing bowl, add half of the coconut milk chia mixture. Sift in the coco powder, add the chocolate chips, and mix well until all the ingredients are well-incorporated.

Cover both bowls with ceramic wrap or a lid and place into the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours or until both liquids become pudding-like. When ready, let’s put it all together.

Putting it all together

In your favorite 4 oz serving glass, first layer the bottom with the coconut chia pudding. Next, layer the chocolate chia pudding until you reach the middle of the glass.

When you reach to the middle of the glass, add slivered almonds and chocolate chips. Layer and repeat until all of your ingredients have finished.

Garnish the top of the pudding with more slivered almonds and more mini chocolate chips.

Enjoy immediately or make them ahead and store them in the fridge for up to three days.
