This is a terrific little breakfast (or snack) that you can make ahead of time and take with you to work/school. For those who are a little unsure of the texture of chia seed puddings this raw cacao (chocolate) one is a great introduction. This is super easy to make. I use the toppings to add sweetness.
Chia seeds are high in dietary fibre, protein, antioxidants, Omega 3, calcium and is gluten free. Who would have thought in such a tiny seed! Cacao is a rich source of magnesium, protein, iron, calcium and is a super antioxidant.
Recipe Ingredients (makes 4 serves):
1.5 cups (360ml) milk of your choice (almond, coconut, soy etc)
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup cacao
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Choice of nuts/seeds
Place ingredients into a jar or container and mix.
Let sit in the fridge for about an hour and stir thoroughly.
If pudding is too thick and clumped together add a little more milk.
Leave overnight or 6 hours in the fridge – this mixture can keep in the fridge for about 4 days.
Once done, spoon into individual serves and top with Greek yoghurt, raspberries, cinnamon, nuts/seeds etc. *Topping with frozen berries means your pudding will stay cool until you get to work.
The internet is filled with chia seed pudding recipes so have a browse and see what other healthy varieties you can make. Enjoy!
