Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

hippie kitchen treats Aug 18, 2021

This is seriously such a divine treat and what's awesome is it's packed with nutrients.

I love sweets, so my strategy isn't to deny myself but to create desserts that are not only satisfying and delicious but nourishing as well.

The beautiful thing about this recipe is the whole family will love it!! 

Chia seeds are:

  • Packed with antioxidants
  • Have tons of fiber
  • Contain protein
  • Have Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Great source of calcium, phosphorus, and Zinc!

All of the above help lower inflammation and give the body the building blocks it needs to do what it is supposed to do, keep you alive and healthy!

What's even better is when you soak chia seeds they become gelatinous and can even help prevent dehydration. Soaking them also helps rid their digestive inhibitors (all seeds have these). So basically they are better for your digestive system and are SO good for helping regulate bowel movements. 

This recipe also has tons of healthy fats and magnesium, from the cacao! You don't have to deprive yourself of sweet treats, just make them with fiber so that the sugar is metabolized slower. Boom. It's all about working the system, my friends. 

Okay, let's do this... 

Ingredients: 

  • 4 cups nut/seed milk. I love and use homemade cashew or almond milk
  • 1 cup coconut cream 
  • 3 tbsp nut butter (I used Nutzo, almond, cashew, or even peanut butter will do!)
  • 1/2 cup cacao
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 4 tbsp of chia seeds (Use 1 tbsp to every 1/4 cup of milk you use)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup maple syrup (sweeten to your liking!) 
  • Dash of sea salt 

Directions: 

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender. 
  2. Blend on low for about 30-45 seconds 
  3. Pour into an airtight glass container, I use large mason jars! 
  4. Place into the fridge for 30 minutes - 1 hour. 
  5. This beautiful treat is ready when it has a pudding-like texture. If it's not gelatinous enough, add a little more chia seeds, whisk well and return to the fridge. Check again in 30 mins-1 hour. 
  6. Enjoy!!! I love to top with cacao nibs, raspberries, roasted coconut flakes, or even just a little shaved dark chocolate! 

 Have you made this chia pudding before? I'd love to know! 

Chia seeds can also help promote healthy bacteria! 

Let me know if you make it!
