Almond Layer

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp. pure grade A maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, plus extra for sprinkling on top

Chocolate Layer

  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp. pure grade A maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Stir all almond layer ingredients ingredients together in a medium sized container with a sealing lid.
  • Stir all chocolate layer ingredients together in a separate small container. You may need to use a whisk to break up all of the clumps.
  • Place both containers in refrigerator for at least two hours, preferably overnight. The pudding will be smoothest if you stir it once or twice at some point during this time, but fine even if you don't.
  • Remove containers from refrigerator and stir each pudding.
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup of the almond pudding into four glass serving dishes (my jars were 1 cup sized). Top this layer with a little less than 1/4 cup of chocolate pudding. Top with remaining layer of almond pudding.
  • Sprinkle additional coconut on top and serve. Prepared layered puddings will keep for two days in the refrigerator.
