This Chocolate Chia Pudding is one recipe I go to often for a quick dessert or snack. It seems I always have a jar on hand, just in case I, or my family, crave a little something sweet. Now, if you like chocolate, and you like tapioca pudding, THIS is the perfect dessert for you. I find the texture
of this pudding totally addicting. It reminds me of those Boba drinks that were so popular...with the tapioca balls sitting at the bottom of the cup...I found those drinks kind of strange but, in a weird way, kind of addicting. Well the same goes with this Chocolate Chia Pudding, A-DDICT-ING!
As an fyi, this recipe makes about 2-3 servings so if you want a bigger batch, it is no problem to just double the recipe. I've done this before and the ratios still hold.
Also, this Chocolate Chia Pudding contains only 5 ingredients. FIVE! And it's super easy to make, which is probably why I make it all the time. Plus there are no junky ingredients - no fillers, thickeners or preservatives. Just pure clean ingredients and pure clean taste.
So take 5 minutes to give this recipe a try. Serve it up this coming weekend with friends and family, and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear you thoughts in the comment section below.
Until next time...xx
2Tb pure maple syrup
1tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2C alternative milk (almond, soy, flax etc.) at room temperature
1/3C chia seeds
In a medium sized bowl, or mason jar, pour in the alternative milk, and add cacao. Whisk until fairly well combined (there may be a few small chunks of cacao, that’s okay).
Add maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk again, trying to get all of the cacao mixed.
Add chia seeds and stir with a fork (this prevents the chia seeds from clumping and sticking to the side of the bowl/jar).
Let sit for approximately 2-3min, then stir again. You will notice the pudding beginning to thicken ever so slightly.
Let sit for another 3-5min and stir well, this time making sure to get everything combined and mixed through.
Cover and place in the fridge, to thicken, for a minimum of 4 hours.
Once thick, scoop chia pudding into a bowl and add nuts, berries or whatever you prefer!
