I love chocolate and I love puds! A sweet indulgence doesn’t have to be laden with sugar and unhealthy fats. Made with the right ingredients you can have a delicious dessert that’s not only delicious but nutritious too!
This pudding is rich in magnesium (from the cacao) and is full of amazing omega 3 fats (from the chia seeds). So many of us are deficient in magnesium so this a really delicious and natural way for our body to absorb it. Omega 3 fats are essential for our heart, brain and eye health.
1 ¼ cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
¼ chia seeds
2 tbsp raw cacao powder (more or less, depending on how chocolatey you want it)
¼ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Pinch of pink Himalayan salt (this is my most favourite nutritious salt)
1 tbsp organic raw honey or 100% pure maple syrup
Directions: add all ingredients into a mason jar, top with lid and shake well until all ingredients are well combined. Put jar into fridge and let sit for an hour or so, or overnight, until pudding is nice and thick and to desired texture. Periodically give the pudding a shake. Serve the pudding chilled and top with fresh rasberries, coconut, or goji berries.
