Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Would you be interested in a recipe for pudding that you can eat everyday and not feel bad about?  Or maybe that you can incorporate into your diet to help with weight loss? Or a recipe for chocolate pudding that makes a really healthy afternoon snack that keeps you full till dinner?  Really, I’m being totally serious… because this is it.

Chia seeds are amazing little things.  They’re high in protein and fiber and so many different vitamins including B vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, manganese, and zinc.  They are a good source of calcium and omega 3 fatty acids which we could all get more of.  We love sprinkling them over cold or hot cereal or on top of yogurt and fruit or even blending them in smoothies, but this is probably our favorite way to enjoy them.  Just wait till you try it, this is amazing.

It’s not your typically smooth and thick chocolate pudding but it’s rich and completely satisfying.  And it really fills you up.. You wont need to go back for more 10 minutes after you’ve finished because these amazing little seeds are so full of fiber.  Oh, and guess what.  It’s super simple.
