Mocha Chia Pudding

I’ve rediscovered my love of chia seeds! I haven’t made a chia pudding in ages, but I saw one mentioned on Gena’s blog (Choosing Raw) the other day and thought I’d make one myself.

I love coffee. I love chocolate. So I’ve blended these two things into a healthy chia pudding for a mocha-flavored dessert.

Try it! You know you want to! 😉

Mocha Chia Pudding

serves 1

  • 1 cup brewed coffee, chilled
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp of Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer (in chocolate), Vega Shake N Go Smoothie Mix (in chocolate), or cocoa powder.

Combine everything with a whisk in a small bowl and refrigerate for 10 – 20 minutes, or until the chia seeds gel into a pudding.

Optional:

Substitute coconut milk for the coffee.

Add in some raspberries.

Top with cacao nibs for some crunch.

Experiment with different flavors/brands: mango, berry, chai, etc.

    I try and try to like chia…but I just don’t. But with coffee, I might be swayed.

    You should definitely add the cacao nibs. I made this with and without and with is way better. Try the nibs from RawNatureBoy.com. They are processed differently than most other cacao so the taste is amazing.
