Chocolate Chia Pudding

 

What’s with chocolate that’s always get people’s attention? Our most popular recipes are of chocolate. Yesterday I posted the above picture on Instagram and it got more likes than any of my photo.

I have posted a chia pudding recipe before but there was a request for Chocolate Chia Pudding so here we are. As I mentioned in an earlier post about chia pudding, it’s very versatile. You can make whatever flavor you like with the pudding. This one here use the base recipe for regular chia pudding and we just add the chocolate flavor.

 

There are only 5 ingredients to this recipe, chia seeds cocoa powder, thicken cream, coconut milk and stevia. This can be made dairy free by using only coconut milk but you might need to use a bit of gelatin to help it set. We will be posting the dairy free version at a later time.

The procedure couldn’t be more simple. Just put your ingredients in a bowl and mix well then chill till set.

Chocolate Chia Pudding

This chocolate chia pudding is so rich and creamy. It's so moreish but so simple to make.

Ingredients

  1. 1 tbs chia seeds
  2. 1/4 c thickened cream
  3. 1/4 c coconut milk
  4. 1 tbs. cocoa powder
  5. Stevia or sweetener of choice to taste

Instructions

  • Put chia seeds and cocoa powder in a bowl.
  • Add cream and coconut milk and stir till it's well-blened.
  • Add sweetener. We use around 15 drops of stevia but you can adjust it to your taste.
  • Pour the mixture in a jar and chill for a few hours even overnight for best texture but if you don't want to wait that long it would probably be OK after one hour.

Notes

I believe the thickened cream we use in our recipe is called double cream in America.) For extra flavor, you can add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and/or 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder to the pudding.
