I always have Cacao handy at home. It satisfies my sugar cravings because its sweet, rich and creamy. Cacao is a super food, filled with many minerals; magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese, and many vitamins. It is the unprocessed, sugarless, healthier option of Coco!. Cacao (I am going to keep saying that, hope you have seen the Portlandia episode). With all these healthy benefits of Cacao and me being a crazy chocolate lover, it obviously has an important spot in my kitchen.
So here is what I did to make this Chocolate Chia seed pudding:
– 2tbs spoons Chia seeds
– 6tbs of Almond milk (you can use soy milk, coconut milk and even water)
– 1/2 tbs of Raw Cacao
These are the basic ingredients. I also love everything Peanut Butter, so that always makes it into my desserts. You can also add in shredded coconut, berries, banana, whatever you have; put it in there for the extra nutritional value.
1. Mix Almond Milk, Chia seeds in a bowl, add the Raw Cacao Mix it all up. Then add all the extra yummy, healthy stuff you want in it. Mix it all up again.
2. Put it aside or in fridge for 5 minutes.
3. Come back to it. See if it is all gooped together, if it looks a little dry, put some more Almond Milk and mix it up. Let it sit for a couple more minutes.
Thats it. Enjoy. Super healthy, satisfying, detoxifying dessert. Chia seeds are binding, there are many many health benefits to eating these little guys.
