This raw cacao chia pudding tastes amazing. It’s good for you as well, which might be hard to believe as it looks and tastes decadent enough to be a dessert. However, with all the ingredients added to this it’s incredibly healthy and filling enough for breakfast or anytime.

Chia seeds are a bit strange when you first experiment with them and can be a bit of an odd texture but I promise when mixed with raw cacao, it tastes delicious and will have you eating them in no time!

They’re great in smoothies, sprinkled on top of porridge or yogurt, or added to baked goods. You can even use them to replace eggs in recipes.

Probably one of the best things about this recipe is that it takes no time at all to prepare. Just mix everything the night before and you’ll wake up to a bowl full of superfood goodness!

Ingredients:

To serve 1

1 cup almond milk (or other milk of your choice)

¼ cup chia seeds

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp maca

½ tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp maple syrup (you could use raw honey or date syrup as well)

1 tbsp raw cacao

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix together well your milk and chia seeds allowing the seeds to become incorporated with the liquid.
  1. Set aside for a couple of minutes to “gel” then mix the rest of your ingredients in until everything is nicely combined.
  1. Pop in the fridge overnight until you’re ready to eat in the morning. Sprinkle with whatever toppings you like.

I used hazelnuts and flaked coconut but you could add anything you like: nuts and/or seeds, granola, fruit, etc. Raspberries would be a great addition with the chocolate!
