CHIA SEED CHOCOLATE PUDDINGWHO KNEW! I have found the most wonderful recipe for chocolate pudding and have been enjoying it at the most unusual time! BREAKFAST!


Let me tell you a few ingredients and you will see why.

Chia seeds: a powerhouse of nutrients including calcium and omega 3 and fiber. AND fills you up!

Coconut milk: healthy fat

Protein powder: I am enjoying collagen protein from Axe Naturals for glowing skin, digestion and joints.





  • 1 can organic coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cocoa powder (I enjoy Penzies Dutch high fat cocoa)
  • 1/4 cup organic grade B maple syrup, honey, or stevia to taste
  • pinch of sea salt
  • optional: 2-4 Tablespoons protein powder (I prefer Axe naturals Collagen Protein)
  • Fresh whipped organic heavy cream

Put all the ingredients into a high powered blender such as a Vitamix. When mixed and smooth, pour into a large bowl and fold in about 1/2 cup whipped cream. The mixture will be creamy and rich, so I only put about a 1/4 – 1/2 cup into each pretty little bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Keep your whipped cream (optional) whipped in a separate bowl so you can easily top your pudding anytime you want a treat!
