Salted Caramel Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding
Don’t you hate when I make recipe titles that long? I don’t. It explains everything that is in the recipe, so then there are no unhappy surprises. Oh wait. There is one surprise in this. Cacao nibs. But those are totally happy surprises. So it’s fine.
Doesn’t this dessert seem very Valentine’s Day-ish? It has chocolate and the color red in it, so it’s totally Valentine’s day decor. I think I’ll probably eat something chocolate on Valentine’s Day. Meaning I totally will. But that’s a daily occurrence. Valentine’s day is this week, right? I don’t really care too much since I just got back from a vacation. I will probably be found on the couch, eating and watching Netflix or Amazon Prime shows. Going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day is like going to the grocery store on Super Bowl Sunday. Unpleasant.
Ok, so I’m getting back from Vegas today. So I’m not functioning well and I don’t want to go into too much detail about my trip. Mostly because I’m writing this on a Friday, so well, I have no idea what happened on my trip yet. But I do know what I wore. Well, maybe. At least what I packed. I packed a multiple outfits because you never know how plans could change in the blink of an eye. And you always want to be prepared. So here are my outfits and where I found some of them from. Not that you really care, but if you do, YAYYYY. You’re the best. I’ll most likely be posting actual Vegas pictures soon.
Also, please notice I took these pictures in my new mirror. Not the one that broke in half because of the -12 degree weather. World Market was so wonderful to take it back and exchange it for a brand new one. How great are they?

Do you see a pattern with the places I shop? I LOVE Francesca’s the mostest. The Twirl. Then Athleta. Then Lululmon. And so on. Sorry for the awkward facial expressions. I find it incredibly difficult to try to take pictures while posing in front of the mirror.
For those who find it incredibly annoying I added pictures of myself in the mirror, apologies, recipe follows.Print
Salted Caramel Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding
- Yield: 2-3 1x
- 1 cup your choice of milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 heaping tablespoon almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup cacao nibs
- 1/4 cup fresh raspberries (to garnish)
For the salted caramel
- 1/3 cup coconut cream
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- Place milk, nut butter, vanilla extract, syrup, and cocoa powder in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
- Add mixture to a seal proof jar or container. Add chia seeds and cacao nibs and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. (I’ve noticed that the longer I shake the container, the less likely I have the gummy separation of chia seeds and liquid that sometimes can occur)
- Place in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 8+ hours.
- Once the chia pudding is done, make the caramel. Place a small saucepan over medium heat. Add coconut cream and coconut sugar to the pan, continuously mixing.
- When the mixture begins to boil, add vanilla extract and salt and continue mixing at a medium heat to keep it from burning. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until the caramel becomes dark and thick then remove from heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
- Add caramel to the chia pudding and garnish with raspberries.

Love those Old Navy jeans! I have been kind of reluctant to try them, but clearly I need to. It helps that I need to drive like two hours to get to the nearest Old Navy.
Thanks for this recipe! What a great way to start out Valentine’s Week 🙂
I have been craving salted caramel and chocolate! This looks delightful!! Definitely making this today.
Hey Juli! I’ve tried making your breakfast chia seed pudding twice now and it never thickens up. Womp, womp. Any ideas as to why? Thought the coconut milk was the key (I used the whole can not just the cream the first time). I really want this to work! Love all your recipes and the commentary, of course!
Oh wait! Just saw the note in today’s recipe…. do I shake more???
Yes! I found that with chia puddings I need to keep the jar with me for at least 30 min or so and give an occasional shake until the chia seeds sets and distributes evenly in the liquid.
You’re adorable. and TALL! and fit. and .. i just love you
I’m leaving for Vegas next week and needed some inspiration on what to wear so thanks! Did you visit any crossfit gyms out there? Just wondering if you reccomend one over the other because they have quite a few.
Definitely comfy shoes!! I bought some toms while out there and they saved my life. I didn’t go to a gym out there but I heard max effort is great!
Rhino Crossfit. It is right next to the airport (which is practically on the Strip). We have a giant warehouse filled with obstacles too:)
Ok but Im annoying and need to know where the little black mini skirt is from in your second picture! I need a sassy little number like that
WOW! you look great! You still look very fit but much more slender…
I just bought that maxi dress from Hope’s ! It is a little tight in the neck area, but other than that fits well. What did you wear underneath up top since the back is all open? Also, love your website, enjoy reading your post and I love cooking/eating your recipes! keep it up!
I got a sticky bra from target for that dress! It just sticks to your boobs and doesn’t budge unless you sweat a ton
Omg, you have the best legs, I’m ridiculously jealous!! You’re fashion is adorable. I wish I was your friend so I could raid your closet. Guess ill have to settle with using your recipes 🙂
Love your clothes from Francesca’s !! I’m visiting my parents in South Carolina for a week on Friday (from Canada) and definitely shopping at Francesca’s!! We have similar style too, woo woooooo
Oh I gotta make this!!! Love it!
Necklace from High School— I don’t know why but that cracked me up!
As soon as I saw the title for this post my mouth started watering…sounds so delish!
This looks so delicious! I’ve tried your other chia puddings and will definitely be adding this one to the list of the chocolate Valentine’s Day desserts I need to make this week!
Yummmmm! I’m adding this recipe to my Valentine’s Day Paleo round-up for my blog!!
I love those Old Navy jeans, even though I would never be able to wear them. I also love your arms, and I wish I could have (er, achieve) them!
Your last picture cracked me up. You are so stinkin cute.
This looks so delicious and great for valentines day! I actually like recipe titles that explain what they are even if it makes it long 😉
Wow – I need to try those Old Navy jeans!! They look awesome on you.
What a perfect valentine’s day treat! I love that the recipe title is long. Then there’s not question about what’s in it. Besides it’s your recipe so why not rock it? Love the athleta shirt. That’s my favorite store!
I love your face. At first I typed that sentence in all caps, but it seemed a bit aggressive. Let’s quit paleo blogging for fashion blogging. You’re the cutest. Seriously.miss.you.tons.
Oooo I’m totally down with that!! You’re the bestest!
Last pic of your outfits was my favorite. Glad it is your normal attire, it kinds shows that 🙂
Tried this today and it was SO amazing!!! YUM!
This looks so good! We have tried 6 of your recipes so far and have loved each one! It was funny because I was just talking about your blog to my husband the other day and he saw you mentioned in the Best of 2013 in a paleo magazine.
that dress looks very game of thrones inspired! all you’d need is a belt and tyrion lannister. 🙂
Juli, your as cute as a button, don’t worry about your facial expressions!
I’ve made the pudding and it’s delicious! It was my first time trying chia pudding, so I was a bit nervous about what the texture would be like. Tonight I’m making the caramel sauce!
I love it when i haven’t visited your site in a while – and when I do revisit, I get a whole new set of delicious treasures to try! Thank you for your chocolate love affair! So excited to try this one.
Your last chia pudding was the best thing that ever happened to me, I can’t wait to make this one, although this one seems way more involved.
Your first dress was so cute. I just got back from vacation (during our -12 degree weather) Luckily now it’s pretty warm here in Denver
Would this still work using ground flaxseed meal instead of chia seeds?
no, it wouldn’t work the same as chia
Hi Juli ! Everyone of your recipes are fab, except this one didn’t turn out very well for me 🙁 . The caramel sauce was the issue. I used “let’s do organic creamed coconut” and “wholesome organic coconut palm sugar”. It turned clumpy, almost like an oatmeal texture. Am I using the wrong ingredients?? Help!
hey ellen, that happened because you didn’t use the right stuff. you need to use coconut milk, you can get coconut cream, but creamed coconut is something different, it’s coconut butter. so you need to use the cream that rises to the top in cans of coconut milk. that’s why i put that link in there so to help people see what they should be getting
Hey Juli!!! Another winning recipe – and so delish! Just wanted to let you and other readers know I made the caramel out of coconut sugar and a combo coconut/rice milk (I live in a small city in the Netherlands so finding coconut cream is challenging!) and it turned out great. I just had to spend some extra time stirring away over the stove top to make sure it kept reducing without burning. So tasty! Thanks again for an awesome recipe 🙂 And I love your TJ Max shoes – so cute!
hi there, I stumbled upon your site today…thanks google! I am looking forward to trying out your fantastic recipes. We’re new to paleo eating…thanks to whole30 (round 2 since October) anywho. I’m allergic to tree nuts, any ideas for modifying this one and subbing the almond butter. Thanks.
sunflower seed butter would work!
I’m afraid this was a big thumbs down in my family. I don’t think they liked crunchy bits in their pudding:-0
