Addicted to…Chocolate Chia Pudding
Yes, I am posting ANOTHER Chia Pudding recipe. I tell you, it’s easy to make, it’s filling and it’s good for you. What more could you ask for? It also helps to alleviate those sweet cravings. You know the ones we get at night..after dinner, when we know we probably shouldn’t, but then we give in and have something we may regret in the morning? Well, you won’t feel that way with this delightful and decadent treat!
- Serves about 4
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 2 cups Almond or Coconut milk, unsweetened
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 5 pitted dates
- 2 tablespoons Grade B Maple Syrup
- 2-3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (depending on your tastes)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of Sea Salt
Place chia seeds in a medium-sized glass or metal bowl. Blend remaining ingredients together in a high-powered blender until creamy smooth. Pour over chia seeds. Stir well to combine and let sit for about 10-15 minutes or until pudding thickens. Serve room temp or refrigerate and serve cold. Top with fresh berries, nuts and a splash of coconut milk! ENJOY.
