Need a snack? How about a rich, chocolate, decadent, nutrient dense, satisfying, AND AWESOME FOR YOU snack?
I love rotating chia pudding into my food prep for ready to grab snacks. As a midwife, I never know when I will have to run out the door. This recipe SAVES me, especially when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Chia seeds are incredibly high in calcium, vitamin C, iron, and Omega-3’s. This super food contains so much protein per serving, 10g in this recipe alone!
-regulates blood sugar levels
-rich in probiotics
-helps build lean muscle
This recipe is one you can indulge in knowing you are enhancing your health.
Decadent Chocolate Chia Pudding
1 13.5oz can coconut milk (Golden Star or Thai Kitchen Organic for the best, creamy taste. The right coconut milk is crucial to the consistency of this recipe.)
1/2 cup chia seeds
4 Tbsp of cacao
4 scoops stevia (alternatively you can use 2 TBL of date or maple syrup if not keto, but this will change the nutrition facts)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
*Optional toppings: Strawberries, Coconut, or Almond Slivers
**If you like it less creamy/thick, you can add 1/4 c almond milk to thin
Mix the ingredients together well. It will be a thick mixture if using the suggested coconut milk. Simply divide them into 4 servings. I love using the Weck Jars. Refrigerate for two hours before enjoying, and keep in the fridge!
If you prefer not to taste the seeds, you can put the mixture in a blender or food processor for 10 seconds.
