Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding (Dairy, Egg & Nut Free)

151 calories

3.01:1 Ratio

This may look a little strange, however it taste very good and it is strangely addictive!  When combined with moisture, chia seeds will swell up and create their own gelatinous texture.  It’s surprising how thick this pudding can get.  Some people may have to reduce the chia or add more liquid to thin the pudding a little. You do not have to grind chia seeds before using them, you can use whole or ground, either will work for this recipe.  Although there is a “texture” from the seeds, they are soft, not hard and crunchy.

Ingredients

49g coconut milk, So Delicious Brand full fat

10.3g oil, I used safflower, any plain tasting oil will work

9g chia seeds

3g Truvia (I thought this tasted better than the liquid drops)

2g cocoa powder, unsweetened

pinch of salt (do NOT leave this out, it will never taste right without it!)

Directions

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.  The mixture will look thin!  You need to allow this to sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.  The seeds need time to absorb the liquid.

After it has finished thickening, determine if you want to thin it a little with water.  Just keep in mind this will also water down the taste of it!

Notes

If you can use any of the flavored syrups, such as the peanut butter, I think this would taste really good.
