We made this chocolate chia seed pudding on Facebook the other day and it was a hit. The chia pudding is so easy and perfect for breakfast meal prep.
Add some yogurt, berries, and perhaps some granola and you have the perfect chia seed pudding parfait.
How To Make Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
This recipe for chia seed pudding only takes a few minutes to make. Add the coconut and almond milk to a large bowl along with the cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Whisk well and check for seasoning.
Cacao is raw and completely unprocessed, while cocoa is bake. Either one is fine, but I like to use raw cacao for this chia pudding recipe.
Slowly add the chia seeds to the liquid and whisk very well. If you add the seed to quickly they will stick to each other and won’t thicken the pudding correctly.
After the chia seeds are in, whisk very well and wait five minutes then whisk again. Wait for minutes more and give it one final whisk then transfer to the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
How To Make A Chia Seed Parfait
For the chocolate chia seed pudding I used dairy free yogurt. The best brands on the market are Lavva(I like vanilla), Kite Hill greek style plain. If using dairy yogurt, look for full fat 100% grass-fed yogurt. Maple Hill and Stonyfield are top quality.
When buying fresh or froze berries, you realy want to get organic. Berries are always on the dirty dozen and sprayed with lots of nasty chemicals.
