Chocolate Chia Pudding with Coconut & Walnuts

Have you ever heard of a Chia seed pudding? Apparently I’m a little behind on the times, and just discovered this deliciousness that can be enjoyed as a pudding or a breakfast!

Chia seeds are extremely rich in Omega-3, which is healthy for the heart, and great for the joints. They also contain antioxidants, fiber and protein. Chia seeds make a perfect breakfast, because they will fill your belly and satisfy your hunger. 

Once you’ve become a Chia expert, you can master your own recipes and tweak it to suit your tastes. Here’s how I made my first batch today…

Chocolate Chia Pudding with Coconut & Walnuts

First, you will need some mason jars or storage containers…

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients (Makes 1 Serving)
Mason Jars for your pudding
1/4 Cup chia seeds
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs Maple syrup (2 tbs if you want your pudding to be a little sweeter)
½ Tbs Cocoa powder (1 tbs if you don’t use the Spectrum mix)
½ Tbs Spectrum ground chia, flax, coconut and cocoa
1 Cup rice milk (you can use any milk you prefer)
1/2 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp unsweetened coconut flakes
1 Tbs Walnuts
Assorted berries for topping as desired

*All of my ingredients used are organic, but use whatever suits you best.

DIRECTIONS:
Combine the chia seeds, vanilla extract, maple syrup, cocoa powder, Spectrum mix, cinnamon, coconut flakes and walnuts in your mason jars.

Add your rice milk or milk of your choice and shake it up well. Place in the refrigerator overnight (preferably), or for a minimum of 6 hours before consuming.

Serve with berries of your choice. If you prefer your nuts to be a little more crunchy, consider adding them once your mix has set.
