Chocolate (Chia) Pudding

My other chia pudding recipe features whole soaked chia seeds that give a tapioca-pearl feel to the finished product. In contrast, this pudding gets pureed in the blender so the effect is more like standard chocolate pudding.

But that’s where the similarity ends. My mom watched me combine the ingredients into the blender one morning and figured she wouldn’t try a sample. After she saw the kids and I so greatly enjoying it she decided to give it a try and couldn’t believe how tasty it was. The somewhat-unusual, heartily wholesome ingredients had entirely thrown her off!

Of course, I sounded like a “bad mom” when my kids reported to an elderly woman at our local assisted living facility that they had chocolate pudding for breakfast. I figured it would be too difficult to explain how nutritionally wholesome the pudding was, so I just let it slide.

I hope you also find this healthy chocolate pudding a wonderful gluten-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free option.

    I love to use chia seeds and ground into flour. An amazing “energy” source with not “let down” like caffeine. I will be serving chocolate chia pudding real soon.
    Thanks,

    I would say this is 2-3 servings. Or 4 small ones (about 1/2 cup per serving in that case).
