dark chocolate chia seed pudding

Chia seeds are one of most nutritious foods you can eat.  They are high in protein, fiber and omega-3s to name just a few.  Making them part of your dessert is a win-win- equals parts tasty and healthy!

This recipe is about as easy as you can get!  The trick is to PLAN it far enough ahead of when you actually want to EAT it because it takes several hours to set.  It’s best to make it the night before and have it ready to go the next morning.  There are so many variations and flavors you can add to almond milk and chia seeds, but this one is by far my favorite!

1/2 cups dark chocolate Silk almond milk

2 Tablespoons chia seeds

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

fresh strawberries

Fat free whipped cream

semisweet chocolate chips

 

Mix together almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla and cinnamon.  Stir well.  Pour into glass dish and let sit overnight to set.  The mixture will congeal together.  When ready to serve, top with a dollop of whipped cream, fresh sliced strawberries, and a few chocolate chips.  Enjoy!
