I generally eat very healthy, but sometimes I will get a craving that just cannot be ignored!  Since I started living a more “clean eating” lifestyle, I have found some ways to satisfy my cravings, yet still stay away from nasty ingredients and chemicals in processed food.  One of those ways is by whipping up a batch of my Dark chocolate chia pudding every once in a while!

This dark chocolate chia pudding is SUPER easy to make and tastes amazing!  Once you try this, you will never want to go back to the icky Jell-o pudding stuff!  And, you are getting the superfood benefits of chia seeds–omega 3’s, antioxidants, protein, and fiber…not to mention tons of vitamins as well!

Try this dark chocolate chia seed pudding the next time you have a sweet tooth or the next time your kids ask for a snack.  You will love the gooey crunchiness of the chia seed and the dark chocolate flavor.  Plus, you won’t feel bad after eating it!

Ingredients:

-1/4 cup chia seeds

-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk of your choice)

-2 tbsp. organic coconut sugar

-2 tbsp. dark chocolate cocoa powder

Directions:

1.  Mix the coconut palm sugar and cocoa powder together in a small bowl until there are no big lumps.

2.  Add the chia seeds to the bowl and mix well.

3.  Pour in the almond milk and stir until blended.

4.  Let sit for five minutes and stir again.

5.  Repeat the stirring and sitting process for about 20 minutes.

6.  Either enjoy right away or refrigerate for later!

Makes one large serving or two smaller servings.
