Chocolate pudding chia mousse It is a smooth and mixed version of chia chocolate pudding. There's no chia seed texture, just a classic creamy mousse consistency you'll love!
For those who love the idea of chia pudding but don't love that tapioca-like texture, this recipe was made for you. It's a combo version of my super popular chia chocolate pudding recipe turned into a beautiful mousse.
And a healthier, dairy-free version of mousse that tastes of chocolate dream.
If you've tried any of my chocolate dessert recipes, like my paleo chocolate zucchini bread or my paleo brownies, you'll know that I'll never compromise on flavor. And this recipe is no different. It is rich, creamy and forgiving.
To top it off with my homemade coconut whipped cream and fresh chocolate shavings for a match made in heaven. Now let's get into that.
Chocolate pudding mousse ingredients
Luckily for you, this recipe comes with just a few basic ingredients. In fact, you probably already have them stored in your pantry. This is what you will need to combine:

- Dairy-free milk – 2 cups (I like to use cashew milk or almond milk for this recipe)
- Chia seeds – 1/2 cup
- Cocoa power – 1/4 cup
- Maple syrup – 1/4 cup
- Vanilla extract – 2 teaspoons
The ingredients are completely optional, but why not add more fun, right? Here are my suggestions for the best flavor combination.
- Whipped Coconut Cream: Add a tablespoon of this on top for extra creaminess.
- Chocolate chips: I like to use sweet and sour chocolate, with 50-60% dark chocolate.
- Fruit: Raspberries and strawberries combine very well with chocolate.
- Walnuts: Chopped walnuts (or any walnut) are delicious, giving a contrasting crunch with every bite.
Tips for mixing the mousse
The key to mixing chia pudding is to have a minimum amount of ingredients in your blender. You need a minimal amount to allow the blades to mix everything properly. I've talked about this before in my Vitamix tips video.
That's why this recipe is a double version of my regular chia chocolate pudding recipe. The bigger quantity simply combines better.
As soon as you finish mixing you will see it thickens immediately. That's thanks to chia seeds. It will reaffirm a little more after cooling down.
How long will it last?
The mousse will last 4-5 days in the fridge. However, you can always make a double or triple batch and freeze in individual portions for several weeks or more. This is perfect for when the chocolate cravings hit (wink wink). Just defrost and enjoy!
