Chocolate Chia Pudding

Move over every other seed on the shelves at the market, chia are here and they mean business!
These wonderful little seeds are still fairly new to me, but with them being packed with fibre, omega-3s, protein, & anti-oxidants, how can a vegan, foodie, gluten-free girl resist?!

(serves 4)
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (be sure to check it's gluten free)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or carob powder (more or less depending on how chocolatey you like it)
  • agave nectar or honey to sweeten (to taste)
  • Rasberries to garnish (mint leaves or coconut shavings would look/taste cool too)

  1. Combine the almond milk, chia seeds, & vanilla in a bowl, or shake in a glass jar (making sure the lid is on tight).
  2. Refridgerate for 4-8hrs (overnight is best).
  3. Stir in the cocoa or carob powder, refridgerate for 1-2h).
  4. Stir, spoon into bowls, drizzle with agave nectar or honey if you fancy, & decorate.
  5. EAT and delight in the yumminess.
Little tip- feeling a chill? warm it through! It's delicious hot too.
