Chocolate Cherry Chia Pudding

My new favorite dessert

This pudding is very thick, smooth and delicious. Although it tastes decadent, it uses healthy ingredients. Based on the favorite Australian chocolate bar called Cherry Ripe, a concoction of dark chocolate, cherries and coconut, it is simple to make and makes a wonderful dessert.

This pudding is very thick and can be set in a smooth sided rammekin or glass and unmoulded using a knife to loosen it. The flavor and texture is a little like a chocolate mousse.

Ingredients per serve

One half cup of coconut milk

2 teaspoons of raw cacao powder

2 Tablespoons of milled chia seeds

1 teaspoon of granulated palm sugar

10 to 12 pitted cherries – fresh if you can or drained canned cherries

Coconut chips to garnish


Blend together the coconut milk, cacao powder and coconut palm sugar until the sugar is dissolved. A stick blender or magic bullet is ideal

for this.

Add the milled chia seedsand stir well, then stir in half the cherries.

Pour into a bowl or a rammekin or glass if you wish to unmould it.

Leave to set in the fridge for at least an hour.

Serve garnished with the rest of the cherries and some coconut chips.


Leave the pudding to set in a small plastic container and freeze it, then unmould for a frozen dessert treat.

    Use your snipping tool – from your accessories in your all programs (best tool ever).

    If you are very patient/careful, you can highlight just the recipe and then copy (Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) it to a Word document (or other word processing document. Then you can save it or just print it.

    If you have not highlighted before, I’d start at the bottom of the recipe at the last word, hold down your right mouse key and then move it up until the part you want to copy is highlighted (mine’s blue). Then just do the copy and paste thing. Good luck!

    I would love it if I could print some of these recipes without the sidebar advertising — any way to do it?
