Happy almost Thanksgiving to everyone! I thought maybe a super food packed filling and healthy breakfast would be a really great recipe to have after ya’ll fill up on too many vegan of course food tomorrow! In all honesty I don’t partake in that, I’m thankful for things of course! But the stuffing my face and feeling like total crap… no I’d rather not, I like having energy and feeling my best! 😉 how about you?
on to the recipe…
Do you love blueberries? How about pudding? And chocolate? If you said YES of course to all three then I think you will LOVE today’s blueberry chocolate chia breakfast!
Chia pudding nothing new right? I’m sure you have already read my 12 reasons to eat chia seeds by now but if you haven’t be sure to read that also so you can totally be on board with how yummy and HEALTHY those babies are!
Ok, so chia seed pudding basically you just soak chia seeds in milk, I used almond milk. Now depending on the consistency you like your pudding to be will make a difference of how much milk to add, I usually do 3 TBSP chia seeds to 1 cup almond milk and that gives a gel like consistency but if you want it to be a little less gel like then you can add another ¼-1/3 cup !
Also I didn’t sweeten the chia seeds very much in this recipe because it really doesn’t need it once you add the chocolate date sauce and the fruit, that provides enough healthy natural sweet-ness that you really won’t miss a thing. Of course if you plan to eat the chia mixture alone then you may need a little more sweetener added like, more maple syrup or some kind of nut butter blended with the milk mixture like I did in this chocolate peanut butter chia pudding a couple months ago!
Another thing when making chia pudding the best way to avoid it getting all clumpy is to stir the mixture really well and place it in the fridge for about 15 minutes and then remove it and stir it really well again (repeat one more time for BEST results) before leaving it sit overnight to get plump and pudding like!
Now of course you can also mix and match the fruit and top it with your favorite!
And don’t forget the chocolate date sauce! It’s healthy made from medjool dates, coco powder and water! It’s the natural sweetener that brings this recipe to life! So don’t leave it out, mmky? 😉

Blueberry Chocolate Chia Breakfast
- 3 TBSP chia seeds
- 1 cup vanilla unsweetened Almond Milk (I use SILK brand)
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- 2-4 TBSP Healthy Chocolate Date Sauce
- Raw cacao nibs
- Start by adding the chia seeds, almond milk and maple syrup to a container and stirring really well. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes and then give it another stir to avoid clumping and place it back in the fridge overnight. If you can give it another stir in 15 more minutes that is ideal, but it will be ok if you don’t.
- Prepare the Healthy Chocolate Date Sauce (this will keep well in the fridge up to 5 days)the recipe makes about 8 oz. but I suggest making the whole thing and dipping fruit in it or topping nice cream with it!
- Once ready to enjoy start assembling in a glass, cup, jar or bowl start assembling! For mine I did the chocolate sauce smeared on the side of the glass, then chia pudding and topped with more fruit on top!
- Serves 2
