I've decided to try out these chia seeds everyone's talking about. These little seeds are economical and have some great health benefits, including being full of omega 3's. Naturally I decided the best way to try these for the first time was surrounding them with chocolate!
This recipe is so easy, and you can make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge overnight for ease of snacking. I don't know if this could really pass as "real" pudding, because the chia seeds do give it an interesting texture, but it will definetly satisfy those sweet cravings and topped with sprinkles or fresh fruit would make a tasty dessert.
Chocolate Chia Pudding
4 Tbsp chia seeds
1 C almond milk
4 Tbsp maple or agave syrup
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together well. It takes a little stirring time to incorporate everything.
Refrigerate for at least 30 min or leave overnight. Enjoy topped with chocolate sprinkles or fresh fruit!
For extra fun I served this chia pudding in these pink-based cocktail glasses and topped it with some vegan chocolate sprinkles. This pudding is not as thick as traditional puddings usually are, but I still think it's worth a try, especially if you have a sweet tooth like I do!
Thanks for stopping by!
