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.


Salted Caramel Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding

  • Yield: 2-3 1x



For the salted caramel


  1. Place milk, nut butter, vanilla extract, syrup, and cocoa powder in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  2. 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)
  3. Place in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 8+ hours.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Add caramel to the chia pudding and garnish with raspberries.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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!

      1. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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!

    2. Rhino Crossfit. It is right next to the airport (which is practically on the Strip). We have a giant warehouse filled with obstacles too:)

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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 🙂

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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!

    1. 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

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. I’m afraid this was a big thumbs down in my family. I don’t think they liked crunchy bits in their pudding:-0
