Chocolate Chia Pudding
Breakfast, Dessert or Snack Chocolate Chia Pudding. Great protein content and no sugar.
1 1/2 cups (360 ml) Almond Milk Unsweetened
1/3 cup (63 g) chia seeds
1/4 cup (24 g) cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
2-5 Tbsp (30-75 ml) maple syrup if not blending (can sub 5-9 dates, pitted, if blending)
optional: 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Sweeten to taste with maple syrup or honey. If blending, you can sweeten later with dates.
Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it’s achieved a pudding-like consistency).
Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola, or coconut whipped cream.
