After making our Keto Dalgona Coffee Chia Seed Pudding last week, I could not stop thinking of another variation of chia pudding we can have in our lifestyle.
As you can see, we really love our puddings. I have started with plain mixed almond milk with Chia seeds a few years ago and developed the love of Chia seeds from then on.
I have spent a few weeks playing with our Rainbow Low Carb Chia Pudding and have made it on several occasions for our barbecue parties.
Then I moved on to something really quick but coconut-y with our Chia Coco pudding which is quick and easy as well.
All of those being toped up with Keto Whipped Cream and you have a full meal.
And now after Dalgona coffee pudding comes to a perfect chocolatey mousse Chia pudding nobody will ever refuse.
Ground Chia seeds
The first time I have used Ground Chia Seeds was for our Dalgona Coffee Keto Chia Pudding just because I wanted to mimic the milk-white looking base for the Dalgona Coffee topping.
That pudding was not only good looking but so tasty, that I had to try another recipe with ground Chia seeds.
Ground Chia Seeds and not only great for making your pudding much faster but they’re perfect for extra smoothness and having mousse-like texture pudding.
Additionally to this, the omega-3 fatty acids which are a part of Chia seeds are much better absorbed once the Chia seeds are ground. This is the same case as with the flaxseed where it is always advised to use ground flax seeds instead of the whole seeds.
And then I thought of chocolate.
Keto Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding
Mixing a Chia seeds together with a bit of cacao and one of the nut milk will give you an unbelievable Keto Pudding in a few minutes. And the best part is that it’s so easy.
All you do is put all the ingredients together, blend it, pour and there you have it.
As you see on our video I use most of the time our Magic Bullet, which works pretty well for all of the recipes.
But I have realized, to get a really fluffy and mousse-like looking Chia Pudding, you need something much stronger.
After about a week of making this recipe (which do not get me wrong – the magic bullet is just perfect) as I thought.
I was on Instagram and somebody just dumped something similar to this recipe into the Vitamix Blender and blended it. And then when I saw the real mouse coming out of the blender I had to call my friend, who’s got a Vitamix and see if my recipe would do the same.
I gave her my whole recipe and my full instructions and asked her if she could make it in her Vitamix. I was not sure if it was a blender or the steps I made that I didn’t really get that fully fluffy chocolate mousse pudding.
And there you go, she made it. She sent me a picture and it was the best mousse looking pudding you can imagine.
So, if you have a really strong blender like Vitamix or a Ninja, you should get a double mousse pudding from this Keto Chia Seed Recipe.
And I have to tell you, I have just ordered a blender hopefully strong enough. It’s not Vitamix but it’s coming tomorrow and can’t wait to try all of the recipes on it.
Maybe I will even redo the pictures. Or maybe not.
Maybe I will just make some new recipes for you all.
Chia seeds are the perfect addition to a low-carb or keto lifestyle. Extra rich in antioxidants with a huge amount of fiber content without sugar unlike most of the fruits, Chia seeds are one of the best ingredients to use in our lifestyle.
Chia Seeds are so versatile, that you can make various dishes either keto, low-carb, or in general any lifestyle.
You can make various Keto Puddings as you can see from our website I have already made for.
You can mix jams, preserves, or Jellies.
Furthermore, you can add Chia Seeds into different sweet sauces to thicken them up a little.
You can add them to our Raw Seed Keto Bread Crackers to use as binders.
You can add a bit of Chia seeds into summer drinks, which are actually pretty popular at the moment. Just add a few berries, Chia seeds, and you have it.
For Keto Chia puddings, you can use any of the nut milk we have available. You can have a look at our post in the Pantry where I mention almost all of the Milk Alternatives available for our low-carb and keto lifestyle.
You can even make your own milk like our Coconut Milk made from scratch.
You can also use a heavy cream mixed with water if it is too thick for you.
To make a perfectly thick but still on a soft side Chia Puddings, I always use the ratio of a quarter cup of Chia seeds to 1 cup of milk.
In this recipe I have used 2 cups of milk with half a cup of ground Chia seeds.
Remember that when you’re using ground Chia seeds for pudding, you do not really have to wait 20 or 30 minutes as usual with ground Chia seeds mixed with one of the nut milk.
The pudding comes thick in just a few minutes.
When making plain nut milk (mostly almond milk in our case), I never use a sweetener.
It should be enough to normally top it up with berries, add Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam, sprinkle it with nuts, or use cinnamon or Sugar-Free Keto Sprinkles on top.
That is more than enough for me and my family.
But it is really up to you.
If you use any of the sweeteners, I would suggest either mix Erythritol with Stevia or use already pre-mixed sweeteners such as Lakanto or Besti.
That will give you the exact sweetness you are looking for.
For our keto chocolate Chia pudding recipe I have added sugar because of the cacao.
In this recipe, I have used pure unsweetened cacao which is a pretty strong tasting without a bit of sugar sweetener.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Why is my Chia Pudding Runny?
The advantage of Chia seed pudding is that you can easily adjust the thickness.
If you feel that your Chia pudding is runny and not thick enough, just add a bit of extra Chia seeds and mix it.
When adding a whole Chia seeds, you might have to wait 15 to 20 minutes for the pudding to thicken up.
With Ground Chia powder, the thickening should happen immediately or within a few minutes.
On the other side, if your pudding is too thick, adding a bit of extra nut milk, should loosen it up and make the Chocolate Chia Seed pudding or any other Chia seeds pudding more liquid.
What can you serve Keto Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding with?
With our Keto Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding it is perfect to layer a Greek yogurt.
Greek yogurt will give you that additional soury taste and mixed with chocolate pudding it is the best flavor you can imagine.
You can either layer the pudding with yogurt and repeat the layering as you see on one of our images or just add the Greek yogurt on top of the pudding.
You can additionally sprinkle it with either raw cacao, sugar-free sprinkles, berries, pieces of nuts or cinnamon.

How long can I store this Keto Chocolate Chia Pudding?
This keto chocolate Chia pudding, same as any other Chia Pudding made with nut milk should last stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Once you want to unfreeze it just take it out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw naturally.
