Sugar-Free Low Carb Chocolate Chia Pudding {Dairy & Gluten Free}

Here’s a sugar-free, low carb chocolate chia pudding that is ready to eat in 10 minutes!

Some of you have been waiting and waiting for me to adapt and remake my chocolate almond chia pudding as it needed a 3-4 hours or overnight fridge time in order to be eaten. Once I made the Vanilla Chia Pudding I knew I had to remake this one!

Who wants to wait 3 hours for a healthy treat? NOT I!  This one is just as delish, if not even better, than the vanilla one as it’s CHOCOLATE!!!

Topped with whipped cream or canned coconut milk (the cream only part on top) and some cacao nibs, BOOM! Delicious, healthy, full of fiber and FAST!


The chia softens, gels up and fills you up too so you’ll be one satisfied happy person after enjoying this snack!

 Notes on Recipe:

  • If you don’t have chocolate stevia you can use plain or vanilla flavored or even powdered, try 2 packets.

    Made this today using honey instead of stevia and loved it! I did add a bit more honey, but I’ve got a proper sweet-tooth. This was the first chia seed recipe I’ve tried and will def try variations :-)

  2. Amy says

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I bought some chia seeds in bulk and was wondering what to do with them…until now! :)

  3. Trish says

    I just found and made this recipe today – I used splenda instead of stevia. This is very clever, also full of fiber, antioxidants and Omega 3’s. My new go-to chocolate fix. Thank you ever so much for this genius concoction.

      Well it’s not going to thicken as typical chocolate dairy milk pudding would thicken, it will be smooth but somewhat loose still.

    This looks amazing! I’m really excited to try it out. I just have one question: Where are the 20 grams of carbs coming from?? As far as I can tell, this recipe has closer to 5 grams of net carbs. Is the 20 grams coming from not calculating net carbs? (You can subtract the grams dietary fiber to get net carbs).

    • Brenda says

      The net carbs are not calculated within the nutrition info. I think many people would get confused and then subtract the fiber grams from the net carbs instead of from the total carbs.

    I’ve been wanting to try chia pudding for a while now. I made this with coconut milk, a half tablespoon extra of cacao because I like a strong chocolate taste, sweetened some coconut cream for garnish with a little sugarless sweetener and topped it with just a few defrosted raspberries and drizzled the juice over the top, it looked fantastic and tasted so good! I think next time I will give the seeds a wiz in the blender for a smoother consistency. Thanks so much for the recipe, whole family loved it!

    For hard core low carbers, here’s another variation of this yummy recipe:
    3/4 cup cold water
    1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    1/2 pkt unflavored gelatin
    Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger
    2 tbsp cocoa
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 tbsp sugar substitute

    Combine water and cream. Sprinkle gelatin on top. Sprinkle spices – not too much but to taste – on . Add cocoa, vanilla and Splenda. Mix with a hand beater until thicker. Only carbs are in the cocoa.

  7. Daniel says

    If I wanted to blend the chia seeds for a smooth consistency should I blend them before mixing into the other ingredients?
    Thank you


  1. […] Yes you are seeing correctly, that is chocolate pudding. We were headed to the beach last Friday and I had made this recipe the day before and well, it was staring at me in the fridge! But it sure is healthy, full of fiber too, dairy free, low carb and delicious: Chocolate Chia Pudding. […]
