Overnight Chia pudding with all the richness of a chocolate mousse whats not to love here. Have a go and enjoy!
Rich chocolate Chia pudding
Serves 3 - 4 (if you can share!)
Prep 5 minutes plus overnight soaking
Vegan, Gluten Free
- 1 1/2 cups Almond Milk
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup Raw cacao powder
- 2-5 Tbsp maple syrup if not blending (can sub 5-9 dates, pitted if blending)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients except maple syrup to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. If not blending sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time.
If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it’s achieved a pudding-like consistency).
If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, seeds, granola or coconut whipped cream.
