I've had to play with this one some. Originally recipe is here.

Maybe I'm a dumb, but I thought the pudding came out too runny, to coffee-ish, and not sweet enough (not sweet enough and too coffee-ish are really 2 symptoms of the same problem, the ratio of cacao to maple syrup).

Anyway, this is where I wound up:
1/2 Cup Chia Seeds (Helped make it thicker)
1 1/2 Cups almond Milk (1 1/4 cups and the seeds were crunching a little bit after I bumped the chia seed measurement).
3 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
3 tbsp Organic Maple Syrup
pinch of himalayan sea salt
1 tbsp Vanilla extract (alchohol cooked out because I've got an allergy). This was my wife's idea. I listen to my wife...usually.

through it all in a container with a lid, shook it up, and let it sit overnight. I thought it came out pretty good. I suppose based on your preference you could play with the cacao to maple ratio to adjust the flavor more to your liking. Or add a little cayenne to spice it up a little bit.

Over all though, this solved a bit of a sweet tooth issue I have at night always.

Edit: OH! Raw-ISH because a) not sure about the process for the maple syrup, if there's a heating phase that goes beyond "raw" thresholds, and b) my cooking of the vanilla extract, or really the production of extract to begin with.
