  • 3 cups hazelnut milk homemade or we like Elmhurst 1925
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup plus more to taste if needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao or unsweetened chocolate powder
  • 1/3 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Optional Toppings



  • Add milk, maple syrup, vanilla, sea salt, cacao or chocolate powder, and flax seeds to a high powdered blender. Blend on high until smooth and fully incorporated, 1-2 minutes. Alternatively, you can whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl, mixing in chia seeds last. This will have a different texture than the blended version, but works great as well.
  • Add chia seeds to a large airtight storage container and pour pudding mixture on top. Stir chia seeds into the pudding until incorporated. Then transfer to the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Shake the container or stir the pudding a couple of times to prevent lumping.
  • Arrange pudding in small individual containers such as mason jars, ramekins or drink glasses. Layer toppings between pudding or add them right on top. We like a little bit of everything.
