Coconut Chocolate Chia Pudding
Ditch store-bought pudding. Make this Coconut Chocolate Chia Pudding, with chia seeds that expand 9 times in your stomach to help you feel fuller longer. Talk about awesome food for dieting!
It’s no secret that the chia seed has been in the foodie spotlight for a while now. It’s nutritious, a great partner for dieting and it’s so versatile this basic pudding recipe can be altered to fit your most eclectic pudding desires.
This is an older recipe I made with the typical chia seed to liquid ratio, but I used coconut milk instead of regular milk and I mixed in some cocoa powder. Vegan, gluten-free and filling. It’s as simple as simple gets with only 4 ingredients and a time to prep of only a couple minutes. Make up a bunch of individual puddings in small wide mouth mason jars, pop ‘em in the fridge and have snacks for the kids for the next week!
