Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

What if I told you that chocolate chia seed pudding might be able to help you lose weight?

I’m not saying you could eat mounds of it every day and still lose weight. But what if it was part of a healthy diet, instead of a “forbidden food”? The kid in me is pretty excited about this (who am I kidding? The adult in me is psyched too!)

Overnight-Chocolate-Chia-Seed-Pudding

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original Unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup (63 g) chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup (24 g) cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-5 Tbsp (30-75 ml) 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

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. If not blending (which I preferred!), sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time. If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
  2. Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it’s achieved a pudding-like consistency).
  3. If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
  4. Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
  5. Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola or coconut whipped cream.
