I’ve been on a chia seed binge lately, adding it to my yogurt, cereal, smoothies…so naturally when I tried this chia seed pudding I was immediately hooked. Chia seeds are apparently REALLY good for you. They’re grown in South America and were eaten by the Aztecs and Mayans way back in the day. In fact, “chia” translates to “strength” in Mayan – pretty cool, huh? They’re high in protein, fiber, omega-3s, and low in calories. Remember the chia pets from the 1990’s? They were grown from chia seeds! How funny – little did we know back then that’d we’d be spending $10 on a bag of the same seeds and eating them like candy. Anyway, let’s get to the real deal – this amazing chocolatey goodness that’s actually good for you. This pudding can be eaten for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, dessert…the options are endless.
Serves 3-4 | 10 mins prep, refrigerate for 2-3 hours
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 2-3 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup light coconut milk
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
The best part about this recipe is that it’s easy and quick. Add all of the ingredients in a bowl and whip them together. Refrigerate for a few hours (I like to refrigerate overnight to get the seeds nice and plump) and enjoy.
