Creamy blended peanut butter chia pudding with a snappy dark chocolate shell on top – a delicious, high fiber, protein-rich snack or dessert!


  • 2 cups (480g) milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp (40g) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (65g) peanut butter (or SunButter for a nut-free option)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 2 scoops protein powder or collagen peptides
  • 1/2 cup (80g) chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips, melted (for a softer ganache-like topping, add 11/2 tbsps non-dairy milk)


  1. Blend the milk, maple syrup, peanut butter, salt, vanilla, and protein powder (if using) until combined and smooth. 
  2. Pulse in the chia seeds. Rest 30 seconds, then pulse again. Repeat until the chia seeds stay in solution and don’t sink to the bottom (3-4 times). 
  3. Transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate overnight.
  4. The following day, blend on high until VERY smooth.
  5. Divide between 4 jars. 
  6. Melt the chocolate chips, and stir until smooth. Pour a thin layer of chocolate on top of each cup. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and flaky salt. 
  7. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
