Kickin' Cacao Chia Pudding instructions
- You can leave your chia seeds whole, if you want a more "tapioca" type texture, but since this is "chocolate" pudding, I grind the chia seeds first. Sadly, I could not get them to grind at all with my granite mortar and pestle (like I do flax), so I use the flat blade of my MagicBullet. A clean electric coffee grinder or any flat blade processor could also be used..
- Blend all ingredients together (I use regular blade on MB for this), then pour into small glass jars or serving bowls. I make 2-3 servings with this recipe..
- Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Add pecan pieces, if desired. Then enjoy the creamy, chocolatey, healthy goodness!.
- "Pumpkin spice" is: 4 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp ginger, 1 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp allspice, all ground (of course!).
Cacao Powder: Cacao powder is typically less processed and healthier than cocoa powder, but either works. Maple Syrup: One of my favorite all natural sweeteners. Vanilla Extract: For that sweet flavor and smooth aroma. Dairy-Free Milk: Choose your favorite one, they all work beautifully. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond milk, vanilla, agave, and cacao powder until well combined.
