CHOCOLATE PUDDING….FOR BREAKFAST
WHO KNEW! I have found the most wonderful recipe for chocolate pudding and have been enjoying it at the most unusual time! BREAKFAST!
YOU MAY SAY…WHAT?????
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.
CHIA SEED CHOCOLATE PUDDING
- 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!
