Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega 3 fatty acids, which we need to get from our food since are body can’t make them. Chia seeds are high in calcium, and iron. They have more fiber than flax and more potassium than bananas. They are also a rich source of antioxidants. Basically they are a nutritional powerhouse.

Chia pudding can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or dessert. This chocolate chia pudding is very easy to make and is a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth. If blood sugar is of a concern for you, use stevia instead of the maple syrup or honey.

Raw cacao is another super food that provides magnesium, fiber and protein.  Raw Cacao also contains theobromine a non-addictive stimulant which can improve metal and physical well-being by stimulating the central nervous system, dilating blood vessels, increasing energy and relaxing tense muscles. No wonder we feel good when we eat chocolate.

Instructions

  1. Pour the almond milk, cacao powder, sweetener and vanilla into a blender. Blend until evenly combined. DON’T BLEND THE CHIA SEEDS. Taste to adjust sweetness. (If you don’t have a blender, whisk in a bowl until the cacao is thoroughly combined.)
  2. Put the chia seeds into a bowl and pour the almond mixture over them. Stir thoroughly with a whisk or a fork.
  3. Let rest for five minutes, and stir again. Ten minutes later, stir again. Refrigerate and let sit overnight or at least 2 hours.
  4. Before serving or in the morning, give it a stir and check texture. If it’s too thick, simply add more almond milk; I like my pudding thick, you can thin it out to the consistency you like.
  5. Top with berries or raw cacao nibs.
