Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is a decadent and healthy treat that can be enjoyed any time of day. This delicious pudding is made with a combination of chia seeds, almond milk, cocoa powder, and maple syrup, giving it a unique and flavorful taste. Chia seeds are a great source of plant-based protein and healthy fats, making this pudding a great alternative to traditional pudding. The cocoa powder adds a delicious chocolate flavor to the pudding, while the maple syrup adds a hint of sweetness.

When making the pudding, start by soaking the chia seeds in coconut milk. This will help to soften the seeds and allow them to absorb the moisture from the milk. After about 15 minutes, stir in the cocoa powder and maple syrup, then transfer the mixture to a bowl and place it in the refrigerator for several hours to allow the pudding to set.

Once the pudding has set, it can be enjoyed either chilled or warm. Serve it with fresh fruit, granola, or nuts for a tasty and nutritious snack. It can also be used as a topping for ice cream or waffles.

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without guilt. It’s packed with healthy nutrients, is easy to make, and tastes delicious. Try it out today and see how it can become your favorite dessert.

I love quick snacks that are rich in protein and fat because they keep me non-hungry and non-angry for at least 3 hours! So, if you are craving a quick healthy snack – check this recipe out. I have tried many chia seed snacks and experimented with adding certain ingredients and a certain amount of chia seeds to get a perfect consistency. If you add too much – the pudding will become too hard if you add too little – it will be too runny. The creamy texture and easiness of this snack are what makes it perfect for a busy mom-life!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c 1 1/2 coconut milk

  • 1/3 c 1/3 chia seeds

  • 1/4 c 1/4 cacao powder

  • 1 teaspoon 1 monk fruit sweetener (honey or maple syrup, to your taste)

  • 1 tsp 1 lavender flowers (dry)

Directions

  • Combine coconut milk, chia seeds, lavender, sweetener, and cacao powder.
  • Pour into separate cups.
  • Set on the counter for 10-20 minutes and mix the pudding 2-3 times before setting it into the fridge. This will prevent the chia seeds from making clumps.
  • Leave in the fridge for 3-4 hours before serving.
  • Add extra sprinkles of lavender on top, and enjoy!
