My son’s pediatrician reads this blog and recently, when we went for a visit, she proudly showed me her chocolate chia seed pudding. Her secret ingredient: chocolate almond milk! Along with a tablespoon of raw cacao powder, the doctor has taken my basic chia seed pudding to superfood level!
1/2 cup organic black and/or white chia seeds
2 cups chocolate almond milk
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon agave
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a 2 cup measuring cup, measure out 1/2 cup of chia seeds. Add the almond milk, cacao powder, agave, and vanilla. Stir rapidly with a fork for few minutes to dissolve the cacao powder. The chia seeds expand soaking up the milk and making a tapioca-like consistency.
When it has set up, pour it into a container and keep it in the refrigerator. It is great for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. Enjoy!
