Peanut Butter Chocolate Chia Pudding Ingredients

  • Peanut butter: It goes without saying that peanut butter and chocolate make an incredible pair in many sweet treats. This chia seed pudding is no different!
  • Oat milk: we prefer unsweetened, plain oat milk for this delicious recipe, but you can use any kind of milk or liquid you want. Coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, cow’s milk, etc., work just as great.
  • Maple syrup: maple syrup compliments the cocoa powder in so many ways. I love how warm and nutty maple syrup is! Feel free to use honey or agave, or any other liquid sweetener.
  • Cocoa powder: This recipe calls for unsweetened cocoa powder. You can also use dark cocoa powder or cacao powder, but you may need to use more maple syrup to offset the bitterness.
  • Chia seeds: any kind of chia seeds work. The most common chia seeds you can find are black and white chia seeds. We’ve used both! Our #1 tip is to make sure your chia seeds are as fresh as possible and not expired, or they will not expand.
  • Salt: a pinch of salt makes all the sweet ingredients of this chia pudding even sweeter.

How to Make Blended Peanut Butter Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding


Add the peanut butter, oat milk, and maple syrup to a bowl and stir all of the ingredients together until the mixture is homogeneous. 

Then, add the cocoa powder, chia seeds, and salt to the mixture and stir until combined. 


Next, cover the chia seed mixture and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight for the best results. 


Once the pudding has set and is a pudding-like texture, transfer the chia seed mixture to a high-speed blender and blend the mixture until it’s a thick and creamy consistency. 


Serve immediately with your favorite toppings, or store the chia seed pudding in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy your wonderful pudding!

Are peanut butter and chia seeds good for you?

What does chia seed pudding taste like?

Chia seed pudding is creamy and has a slightly seedy, gelatinous texture. As a result, it’s the perfect neutral base for adding various sweet flavors. In other words, the taste of your pudding will ultimately depend on what ingredients you add to it.

Why didn’t my chia seeds turn into pudding?

Chia pudding that doesn’t thicken is due to either stale chia seeds or poor mixing. Next time you make chia seed pudding, check the date on your chia seeds and thoroughly stir your ingredients together.


Store your chia seed pudding in an airtight container (like a mason jar) in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
