Chocolate Chia Pudding


Chia puddings make a perfect and balanced snack or meal due to the fact that chia seeds are full of protein, fibre and healthy fats; they're also a wonderful source of Omega 3 so they're a great addition to anyone's diet. I've written a post about how amazing chia seeds are here so if you want to find out more about why they're so good for you then definitely have a read of that! This chocolate chia pudding is rich, creamy and tastes utterly decadent, whilst at the same time being ridiculously good for your body, so it's a win-win creation! You could eat it on its own as a snack or dessert, or top it with coconut milk yoghurt for a filling and delicious breakfast to start your day with. Either way, it's certain to nourish both your body and soul and will also satisfy any chocolate cravings you may have!




Ingredients
Serves 1

  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used rice milk which is naturally quite sweet so I didn't need to use any sweetener)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao (or cocoa) powder
  • liquid sweetener, to taste (optional)


Method

Mix all the ingredients together in a jar or airtight container (give it a quick shake too, just to make sure everything is incorporated) then pop it into the fridge. After about half an hour give the chia pudding another quick stir then leave it in there for another few hours, until the chia seeds have soaked up the majority of the milk and the pudding has thickened. You can either devour it as soon as it's ready or store it in the fridge for 3 - 4 days until you're ready to eat it. Enjoy!
