Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Would you be interested in a decadent chocolate pudding that you can eat every day and it's good for you?  A rich and delicious chocolate pudding that will increase your energy and can help you lose weight?  Do I have your attention yet?

This is not your everyday chocolate pudding.  It's rich and creamy and totally satisfying.  
It keeps you feeling full long after you eaten every delectable, creamy, chocolate bite. 

I almost forgot... it's super easy to make.

Chia seeds are a Nutrient-Dense Superfood - rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, antioxidants and essential vitamins A, B, D and E, also calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and iron.  Chia seeds help sustain your energy levels, the rich fiber content helps control your weight by making your stomach feel fuller, longer.   This omega powerhouse is gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, raw, low-carb and paleo-friendly.


      2 Servings

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla if desired


Toppings:  blueberries, strawberries, yogurt, walnuts, pecans, fresh coconut, chocolate shavings, and anything else you can imagine.  

Mix all the ingredients together.  I use raw honey because I love the sweetness it adds and it's full of health benefits too.  Once everything is mixed, cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. These mighty little chia seeds absorb up to 12x their weight so you may want to add a little more almond milk depending on the thickness you prefer.

  10. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
