This cinnamon cacao chia seed pudding is an easy, healthy make ahead breakfast for any occasion!
Make the chia seed pudding the night before and BOOM, it’s ready to eat the next morning. Just grab your spoon and eat it right out of the container if that’s your style. IT’S THAT EASY.
If you’re traveling, this chia seed pudding is the perfect hotel room breakfast! Throw all the dry ingredients (no almond milk or maple syrup) in a container or sealable plastic bag and pack it in your suitcase. Once you arrive at your destination, pick up some almond milk (or your favorite non-dairy milk) and you’ve got everything you need for a protein and superfood packed breakfast!
Cinnamon Cacao Chia Seed Pudding (Paleo, Whole30, Vegetarian)
This is the perfect healthy make ahead breakfast! Make this Cinnamon Cacao Chia Seed Pudding the night before, let it refrigerate overnight, and your convenient, nutrient-packed breakfast will be ready to eat the morning!
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: Any jar with a secure lid. I prefer a Blender Bottle because it has a “Blender Ball” to help prevent clumps!
Chia Seed Pudding Base
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp Unsweetened almond milk (or non-dairy milk of your choice)
- 1 scoop Organic vanilla protein powder
- 3 tbsps Chia seeds
- 1 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
- 1 tbsp Cacao Nibs
- 1 tbsp Gogi berries
- 2 tsp Pure maple syrup (optional)
- + Extra cacao nibs and gogi berries to top
- To make the chia seed pudding base, combine the almond milk, protein powder, chia seeds, and optional cinnamon in Blender Bottle (or a container with a lid) and shake until all ingredients are evenly combined.
- Place Blender Bottle in refrigerator and set a timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, give the Blender Bottle another couple shakes to prevent chia seeds from clumping.
- Return Blender Bottle to refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
- To serve, either transfer your chia seed pudding to a bowl or eat it directly out of the Blender Bottle. Then add your desired toppings and enjoy!

I love chia seed porridge as I call it. Makes a great breakfast!
Absolutely! It’s so versatile and has so many great nutrients!
Hello and welcome! Thank you so much for the kind words! I truly hope to inspire people to live healthier lives with this blog so it fills me with joy to hear you’re enjoying it. I’ll see what I can do about a brussels sprout recipe – thanks for the recipe suggestion!
The color combination is really appealing! I love chia pudding. What kind of protein powder and collagen powder do you recommend for this?
Thank you! I’m a huge fan of Primal Kitchen’s Vanilla Coconut Primal Fuel. I use it in all of my chia seed puddings and baked goods! Look out for a coupon for PF on my pancake recipe post tomorrow 🙂 And for collagen powder, I love Vital Proteins collagen peptides. It’s a really high quality product made from grass-fed cows and it doesn’t affect the flavor of anything!
Hello! I’m so glad you stumbled across my website! I hope you enjoy the recipe and I hope to see you back here soon!
Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
Haha thank you! It’s amazing how much you can customize the templates on WordPress so no two blogs are exactly alike 🙂
Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
Hi there, thanks for the comment! Yes, I do get a lot of spam comments – it’s pretty annoying. I haven’t done any research on spam blocking plug ins, but that’s something I want to look into. Currently, I just go through the comments and mark them as spam. I’ll let you know if I come up with a better solution! Best of luck.
