Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Seed Pudding

Here is an easy chocolaty dessert recipe I found two nights ago. I immediately made it since I happened to already have all of the ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome and thought it was certainly worth sharing, especially to anyone trying to eat healthy, with a sweet-tooth:

                  • Ingredients:
                  • Chia Seeds
                  • Cocoa Powder
                  • Almond Milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
                  • Cinnamon
                  • Honey

Prep:

Take 1/4 cup chia seeds, 3 tbs raw cocoa powder, a little less than 1 cup almond milk, a dash of cinnamon and honey, mix all ingredients in a bowl, place it in the refrigerator and let thicken. DONE! It’s that easy, enjoy!

Side notes: Rather than having to stir, I used a container with a lid and shook it until it was well mixed. I let it thicken for about 10-15 minutes in the refrigerator, tried it– Delicious! I forced myself to put the remainder back in the ‘fridge until the next day to see what it would become, and to my delight it was VERY thick & smooth! So my recommendation is to make it a few hours ahead of time so it has a chance to thicken. It’s a little heavy on the cocoa… you might want less. Since it wasn’t my recipe to begin with, I was more than happy to have an excuse to use that much cocoa :) You can read the benefits of chia seeds in a previous post of mine if you’re not sure what they are, or how AWESOME they are! Last, the recipe also called for a spoonful of coconut oil, but I skipped that part. Last, last, oddly enough, mixing this with protein powder in place of cocoa can also work for a “pudding” concoction. Enjoy!
