Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

 

Everyone needs a delicious treat from time to time in my case it has to be chocolate, I love chocolate. I thought I would share with you a healthy spin on chocolate pudding. There is actually nothing bad in this recipe, all clean and healthy ingredients.

I just love that nowadays you can pretty much turn anything into a healthy treat. There is no need to be eating chocolate pudding with weird unpronounceable ingredients when you can easily make a healthy option at home.

This Chia Seed Pudding will keep you satisfied without giving up on the flavour, it is my go to when I need dessert.

Why do I love chia seeds?

Well you can easily turn this healthy grain into a dessert without adding any artificial gluing agents. Did you know that chia seeds are packed with:

  • omega-3’s
  • fiber
  • antioxidants

I try to include chia seeds in my daily diet as well as the diet of my 2 year old. Smoothies are a great way to incorporate chia seeds, I also like to sprinkle chia on my salads or on top of toast with almond butter and honey. When chia seeds are left in liquid they turn into chia gel….gross or awesome? AWESOME – this makes the seeds much more valuable they are easier to digest and the nutrients are better absorbed by your body.

I can’t stress enough how horrible some chocolate store bought desserts are, just take a look at a cake or chocolate mousse next time you’re in your supermarket, the ingredients list is HUGE!

Sugar, Enriched Wheat flour bleached, nonfat milk, whole eggs, egg whites, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, invert sugar, propylene glycol mono and diesters, food starch – modified, leavening (basically baking powder), dextrose, mono and diglycerides, salt, soy lecithen, water, polysorbate 60, sodium propionate (as preservative), xanthum gum, sodium stearoyl lactylate, guar gum, cellulose gum, artificial flavor, corn starch propylene glycol, sugar, vegetable oil, mono and diglycerides, corn starch, natural and artificial flavor, salt guar gum, polysorbate 60, artificial color, water, cream, salt, sugar, vegetable shortening, water, butter, wheat starch, mono diglycerides, salt, artificial flavor, polysorbate 60.

    1. I am not too sure, I’ve never had that issue before. There are no ingredients in this recipe that would cause a sour taste
