Dreamy Chocolate Chia Pudding

I received so much feedback from my photo post on Instagram that I felt obligated to post this recipe.  Also, it’s simple and delicious, which makes it a must share…chocolate chia pudding

What you will need:

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1 cup of your favorite non-dairy milk (I love homemade cashew milk)

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

A squirt of raw honey (adjust to suit your sweet tooth)

A sprinkle of sea salt

Place all ingredients in a sealed jar and shake.  Leave in the fridge for 10-15 minutes (or up to 3 days) and enjoy.

Chia seeds are loaded with omega-3 oils, antioxidants and fiber.  The outer layer on these seeds, which creates the pudding consistency, works wonders for keeping your digestive system running smooth, and also keeps your fuller for a longer period of time which makes these seeds a great addition to anyone trying to reach their ideal weight.

Raw Cacao.  Who doesn’t love chocolate, right?  Well now you can love it without all of that awful guilt.  Cacao powder is loaded with antioxidants, trace minerals, vitamins and nutrients.  The best part?  It contains an element called phenylethylamine, which is the same chemical our bodies produce when we fall in love!!  Probably why chocolate holds such a strong place in most of our hearts.

Cinnamon is a wonder herb that helps to normalize blood sugar levels, and also supports digestion, circulation, skin health, and helps to fight off illness and headaches.  I suggest sprinkling cinnamon on anything you see fit.

Some other fun additions include:

Fruit

Maca powder

Unsweetened coconut

Hemp seeds

Nuts

Oatmeal

Get creative…

with love and puddin’,
