- 2 tbsp cacao powder , or cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup dairy-free milk
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- raspberries, (or other fruit)
- chocolate shavings
- coconut whipped cream
- nuts and seeds
- In a medium-size bowl, add the cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, dairy-free milk and chia seeds. Whisk together until all ingredients are combined.
- Leave the mixture in the bowl for 15 minutes without stirring for the chia seeds to gel. After 15 minutes, whisk it together one more time.
- Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator overnight or a minimum of 4 hours.
- Remove the chocolate chia seed pudding from the fridge and stir together with a spoon. Serve into small dessert sized glasses. Top with your favorite fruit, chocolate shavings or other garnishes.
- If you notice your chia seeds aren’t starting to gel and thicken after 10 minutes, you may have dud chia seeds. This can happen in they’ve been sitting in your pantry a while. Just grab a new bag of chia seeds.
- If you want that frosted look on your berries, here’s how you do it. In a single layer on a plate, freeze fresh berries that have been washed and are completely dry. Once they’re frozen, add them to the chocolate chia pudding. About 2-3 minutes later (as they come to room temperature) they’ll have that frosted look. But serve them up quick because it doesn’t last long!
