Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding

I found this recipe while looking for more ways to use chia seeds, which we love. It couldn’t be easier to make.  It is super low in calories, fat and it’s delicious.  I found the recipe on Food Doodles, a blog that we love right now.  The blogger on Food Doodles originally found it on Loveveggiesandyoga (also an excellent recipe source) for vegan/vegetarian yumminess.

Here’s the original recipe:

•    2 tbsp chia seeds
•    1/2 C  unsweetened almond milk(or your favorite alternative)
•    2 tbsp agave, brown rice syrup, maple syrup or stevia to taste
•    1 tbsp cocoa powder
•    1/2 tsp vanilla

(I double this recipe for the two of us but it seems to be just a little too much so it probably makes three servings when you double the above)
Mix all the ingredients together.  It may take a little time to incorporate the cocoa, but eventually it will blend well.  After everything is mixed, cover and leave on your counter (or in the fridge if you prefer in more chilled like we do) for 20 minutes before enjoying.  Or you can leave it in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next day.  The chia seeds continue to absorb the liquid they are in so you may need to water your pudding down with some more almond milk if you leave it till the next day, otherwise it seems a little too thick but also kind of fudgy, if you prefer that.   You can top your pudding with fresh fruit (loved it with strawberries) or just eat it plain.
