The awesome thing about this chocolate chia pudding is that you know you’re eating something super healthy.
But while being ridiculously good for you it still manages to be insanely delicious.
I’ve always had a thing for chia pudding, as evidenced by the fact that there is already an awesome recipe for chia pudding on this site, that would be the peaches and cream chia pudding!
And then there’s the fact that this is a really easy dessert to whip together.
It’s just a case of throwing some chia seeds and cocoa powder into a bowl, pouring on some coconut milk and maple syrup or date honey and whisking until it’s all well mixed. Then you just place it into the fridge for 30 minutes.
If you take it out for a stir half way through, that’s good, but if you forget, that’s also fine (I forgot!), you can just stir it a bit more vigorously at the 30 minute mark.
Then you divide it into bowls and serve!
If you serve it with some dark chocolate pieces and mint leaves, well, that’s even better!
It’s best served right away, if you leave it in the fridge overnight, it sets more and more firmly until it’s quite solid, which is less good.
As you see it served here, it’s a delicious consistency, very ‘pudding-like’ in all the good ways.
I think you’re going to love this chocolate chia pudding, it’s:
