I’ll take chocolate in any form. And I love pudding! But there’s a bunch of junk in store bought pudding. Some of the ingredients I don’t know how to read, and the very first ingredient is sugar. Ah! So what’s the alternative? Easy homemade chocolate pudding with NO sugar and NO weird ingredients. Make in just minutes!
Easy Healthy Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding
10 dates, pitted
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
3 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
In a medium bowl, soak chia seeds in milk. Let sit for at least 15 min, or until most of the milk is soaked up and chia seeds are goopy. Meanwhile, pit your dates (if you havent already) and mash them together. I prefer to use my hands and work on a cutting board, it’s quite messy (big fun for kids). With a spoon or spatula, gently fold dates into chia/milk goop. Add cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract. Stir until ingredients are mixed together well with a smooth-ish consistency. Add additional cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla (or honey) to taste. Depending on how malleable your dates are, it may seem a little clumpy. If you have a good blender, pour in pudding and blend for about :30-1min. Refrigerate for an hour- or if you just can’t wait, eat immediately! Store in the fridge, if there’s any left.
