This Mint Chocolate Chia pudding is delicious and versatile, and easy to make! Plus it has oats too, so it’s sort of like a cross between pudding and overnight oats.
Mint and chocolate – is there a better combination out there? I love it even more when the chocolate flavor comes from antioxidant-filled raw cacao powder! This pudding makes for a wonderful breakfast, snack, or even a dessert.
This chia pudding has oats too, so it’s sort of like a cross between pudding and overnight oats. I like the addition of whole grains for extra long lasting energy!
The chia seeds (which absorb the water and create a pudding consistency) offer protein, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. I’m so glad we stopped using them as just plant pets and decided to start eating them too!
After you combine all the ingredients, feel free to play around with the measurements so that the consistency and taste is right for you. (And keep in mind that the pudding will thicken over time thanks to the chia seeds!)
The fresh mint is just for garnish because the real minty flavor comes from mint extract! I can think of so many uses for it – smoothies, cookies, protein balls, etc.
These weck jars are so cute for storing puddings like this or salad dressings, overnight oats, and anything that needs to sit pretty!
No thank you, Gussie!

Looks delicious, Kath! 🙂 I love mint and chocolate, it’s the ultimate combo! But then again, I do like coffee chocolate (mocha? Haha) just slightly more. 😉

Mint and chocolate are a delicious combo!
This looks really good! Will it work with almond milk? I ask because I tried making chia pudding with almond milk before and it never really thickened up? Just wondering if I should use an alternative for this recipe? Can’t wait to try it!
Yes almond milk should work just fine!

I’m loving all things mint! When I first bought mint extract I was like why the heck did t take me so long to buy this?
Evelyn Hayes says
Yum! I’m planning to make this, asap! I’ve never coked with raw cacao before. Where can I find it?
I imagine It’s pretty mainstream these days, but you might need to check more specialty stores like whole foods
Evelyn Hayes says
This looks like a yummy snack!
So yummy! I am definitely going to make this soon for our family! I know that they will gobble it up 🙂

Chia pudding is delicious! I’ll be making this soon!
I loveeeee chia pudding. So yummy! Never thought about adding mint, but I am a mint chocolate chip addict, so I’ll definitely have to give this one a try.

I love how thick the chia pudding looks! It can be tough to get a consistency that doesn’t send me running for the hills, but when I nail it I really love this as a snack to look forward to in the afternoons at work.
Yum! I’ll be trying this for sure! Thanks!

Yum! My issue is that I don’t want to wait 4 hours for it to thicken 😛
How long will this pudding be good for? I want to make it for breakfast but I am the only one who will be eating it. Will it last in the fridge for a couple of days? Or will that impact the consistency?
Kath Younger says
It should last a couple of days. You’ll want to stir it before enjoying!
