OVERNIGHT CHOCOLATE CHIA SEED PUDDING

OVERNIGHT CHOCOLATE CHIA SEED PUDDING

I love chia seeds and use them all the time. Chia seeds are mini powerhouses packing more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more omega-3 than salmon.

They are very versatile and are a great protein-packed addition to many recipes because of their ability to thicken and gel.

What is Chia Pudding?

Chia seed pudding is a simple and delicious way to easily get the benefits of chia seeds. It takes minutes to make and has enough protein and nutrients to be a quick, on-the-go breakfast option.

This chia pudding could be put in reused baby food jars or small mason jars, Personally, I love this with some chopped soaked nuts, fresh fruit, or even chocolate shavings for breakfast or a delicious low-sugar dessert.

Do consider this recipe my whittled down, super simple version that’s naturally sweetened, vegan and gluten free. Anyone can make it! Plus, it’s so healthy it’s actually suitable for breakfast

This recipe is simple, requiring just 6 basic ingredients that are totally versatile.

This is the beauty of chia pudding. Once you have the chia seed-to-liquid ratio right, the flavor possibilities are endless.

Make this the night before for a decadent breakfast or mid-day snack. Or prep it in the morning for a hands-off, simple dessert to unwind from the day.

You can’t go wrong either way! And it lasts for a couple of days in the fridge – if you can resist sneaking spoonful that long.
