Chia seeds can be found at virtually any grocery store these days, or you can order them in bulk if you plan on prepping them often.
I generally use almond milk, but you can use whatever kind of milk you prefer. Coconut milk is also a particularly good choice for this chocolate chia seed pudding.
How To Sweeten Chia Seed Pudding
If you’re using an almond milk that has already been sweetened, you might not need to add any sweetener. If your milk is not sweetened, you will want to add a little something to balance out the bitterness of the cacao. Honey, maple syrup, and stevia are all great options.
How To Keep Chia Seed Pudding From Clumping
The best way I’ve found to keep chia seed pudding from clumping is to whisk it together really well, place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes then take it out and stir again and return to the fridge and allow it so thicken overnight.

If your chia seed pudding did not thicken, you have either not let it set long enough in the refrigerator, or you used too many chia seeds and not enough liquid.
