GAPS Chocolate Chia Pudding Egg Free

This chocolate chia pudding is surprisingly light and flavorful, thanks to the pureed apple and dates rather than heavy coconut milk as the base.  Chia seeds are fun and super easy to work with – they thicken by simply absorbing the liquid in a recipe.  This chocolate chia pudding is egg-free and dairy-free and is a favorite even among those without dietary limitations.

We show the pudding topped with homemade coconut milk whipped cream, a family favorite that is also egg free and dairy free.

Lighter than pudding made with coconut milk, this is still dairy free. It's naturally sweetened by not only the honey, but the dates and apple as well.  Chia gels without eggs, and it also makes this a no-cook pudding. We topped it with coconut whipped cream. Enjoy this rich chocolate recipe any time!



  1. Soak chia seeds in 1-1/2 cups water for 30-60 minutes, or until swelled.
  2. Blend apples, cocoa powder, dates, salt, and remaining 1/2 cup water in the food processor until smooth, adding 1/4 cup more water if necessary.
  3. Pulse in chia seeds, until evenly distributed.
  4. Spoon pudding into custard cups or small mason jars, cover, and store in the fridge.
  5. Top with coconut whipped cream if desired.
