Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

img_0570

With only six ingredients and no fancy kitchen equipment needed, the hardest part of this of this recipe is waiting for it to sit in the fridge overnight!  It might be my new favorite treat!

What you will need:

1/3 cup chia seeds

4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

3-4 Tablespoons of maple syrup img_0556

I tend to find it easier to pre measure all my ingredients and have them in small containers. Especially because I can put all the food containers away and clean off any measuring tools and put them away before I start to cook.  That way i don’t have as much clean up after I’m done cooking.  This is obviously completely optional, but I find that it makes clean up easier in general.

First, put the chia seeds, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.  Using a fork, sift and combine the dry ingredients completely.  Keep stirring until all the clumps are gone and the mixture is uniformity combined.

Next, mix in the almond milk and maple syrup.  Mix completely, until you think that you have over mixed it pretty much.

Place in a clean glass container.  Let it rest overnight.

You can enjoy it plain or add toppings such as blueberries, coconut flakes, or pretty much anything vegan!

enjoy!

Note- if the texture is not to your liking, simply put it in a food processor or blender.  It will have the consistency of regular pudding.
