Ch-chi-chia baby!!!!!

Superfood say what?!

Now I should tell you that I have tried to make chia pudding a few times before and I just couldn’t do it. All the chocolate in the world could do nothing for the texture . . . I want to love it, I really do but I just can’t.

It’s a texture thing.

Kinda like oatmeal (porridge)

I want to love it, I know it’s so good for me but I just can’t.

Whipped Chocolate Coconut  Chia Pudding
{Vegan, Dairy Free & Paleo Friendly}
Very slightly adapted from this recipe created by  Jessica who blogs over at How Sweet it is
Makes just under 1 cup of light and creamy, decadent and rich, coconut infused whipped chocolate ch-ch-chia pudding

Ingredients -

1/4 cup of coconut yogurt - I use five:am - It’s amazing, highly, highly recommend!

1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

3 Tablespoons of  chia seeds

1 tablespoon of extra dark cacao

1 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 pinch of salt

Optional but recommended for serving -

Chocolate chips, roughly chopped

A few extra cheeky ch-ch-chia seeds

Method -

1 – Place all pudding ingredients into a small bowl or jug and whisk to combine.

2 – Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, (overnight is best). Make sure you go and give it a little stir every now and again to remove any lumps and just to make sure those cheeky little chia seeds haven’t settled at the bottom of the bowl.

3 – Once your pudding is nice and thick, place the mixture into your food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy!

4 – Taste and adjust sweetness if necessary.

5 – Pour into cute little cups or bowls and place it back in the fridge for an hour or so to re-set and chill (it gets a little warm and the consistency thins out thanks to the warmth and friction created while your blending it).

6 – To serve, add a few extra roughly chopped chocolate chips, sprinkle over a few more cheeky chia seeds and voila’ – it’s pudding’ time baby

Enjoy xoxo
