Chocolate Chia Pudding
Chia is a tiny but mighty seed loaded with fiber, good-for-you fat, protein, and tons of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It doesn’t have much flavor, just a subtle nuttiness, so it can be added to anything from salads and smoothies to… pudding!
You can eat them raw (providing a nice crunch to your dish) or soak them in your milk of choice with a few other ingredients et voila, pudding!
A great (and healthy) treat for breakfast, snack or dessert.
Here’s one variation of our morning chia pudding:
1/4 c chia seeds
1 c milk of your choice
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 tsp cinnamon
Fruit, granola or nuts for serving
In a medium bowl, whisk all ingredients to combine.
Cover and refrigerate until thick, 2 hours up to overnight.
