Chia Seeds + Chocolate = Deliciousness
We can all use another healthy dessert option, and this recipe for chocolate chia-seed pudding is so healthy you don't even have to think of it as a treat. (Another huge plus: The recipe is extremely simple.) By combining chia seeds, almond milk (coconut milk will work well also), maple syrup and cocoa powder, you create a sweet snack that is loaded with good-for-you nutrients, including antioxidants, healthy fats, protein, fiber, calcium, iron and potassium. You can eat the pudding alone or top it with chopped nuts, dark chocolate shavings or fresh berries. It's filling, nutritious and delicious!
In a medium bowl combine the milk, maple and cocoa. Whisk to combine. Whisk in the chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours. Stir before serving (add extra milk to thin to desired consistency).
