Introducing Almond Joy Chia Pudding! Oh, yes.

This recipe combines three of my favorite flavors””chocolate, coconut, and almond””into a cool, creamy, and satisfying dessert that is actually somewhat healthy for you, thanks to those little chia seed orbs, which are packed with omega-3’s, protein, and fiber.

This pudding has a wonderfully sweet and coconut-y flavor that reminds me of melted Almond Joy ice cream. Mmm! So. Good. I love, love, love this new recipe, and I know you will too!

  1. What happened to your recipe page? I liked how it was organized before into categories. Any return of this format in CNC’s future?

  2. Sounds delicious! I love the combo of chocolate + coconut + almonds! Though let’s be honest…what doesn’t chocolate go with? 😉 I love that it’s a healthy and satisfying dessert. Would be a great way treat for Friday! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Holy Yum! I add chia seeds to my overnight oats and love them! Any substitute ideas for the coconut extract? Maybe just add vanilla extract and then increase the coconut? I don’t have the extract but I want to make it right now! You’ve given this preggo a serious craving!

  4. Chis pudding is seriously my favorite dessert! My mom used to make it for me all the time, when I was younger (Not the exact recipe, but close) and I will defiantly try to make it for myself one day! ^____^

    Thanks for sharing the recipe with us! Following you on Bloglovin’ now! xx

  5. This sounds AMAZING!! I shared on my facebook page. I will be trying this! I have a decadent, healthy chia seed chocolate mousse on my website. I’m a little obsessed with chia seeds! <3 Emily

  6. My comment has nothing to do with the delicious pudding! lol. You always have the cutest headbands and I especially love the one in the picture above. Where do you get your sport and recreational headbands? With 3 boys in baseball in the hot humid weather here in south Louisiana I always have my hair up and I just thought a cute headband can change things up a little. Thanks Tina! Love your blog…look forward to reading it every morning.

  7. I made this, following the recipe, except I substituted chocolate almond milk and a little greek vanilla yogurt for the plain almond milk, didn’t use the maple syrup since my coconut flakes have sugar on them, and because I didn’t have any coconut extract, I used my Barlean’s pina colada flavored fish oil swirl. It is heavenly! Thanks for posting this recipe! It is amazing how the chia seeds absorb the liquid, making it pudding-like.

  8. I am not lying at all when I say I am ACTUALLY drooling.
    This looks sooooo good and I’m currently obsessed with Chia seeds so I cannot wait to try this!!

    Thanks for sharing xx

  9. I went to bed last night and couldn’t wait to wake up this morning to eat it! It was very tasty! Might have to do a repeat for tomorrow’s breakfast! 🙂

  10. So, I’ve made this about five times since you posted this. It’s sooooo good. Of course I tweaked it a bit by using peanut butter instead of almond and vanilla extract (I didn’t have any coconut and when I tried almond extract the first time it was too much almond). I’ve had it for dessert, for breakfast … I just want it all the time now!
