I’m always craving chocolate…no matter what day it is!! I came across a super easy chocolate pudding recipe from oh she glows, that screams healthy!! Imagine eating a dessert that satisfies that chocolate craving, as well as being loaded with healthy omega 3’s and cancer fighting antioxidants!! That’s not all!! Let’s not forget the euphoric feeling that eating chocolate based foods provides us; releasing the neurotransmitter called anandamide, which targets the brains “bliss” system…giving us that feeling of enjoyment that we all have.
SO ….Make it, eat it, indulge in it, share it, enjoy it!! Then let me know what you think:)
- 1 & 1/4 cup to 1 & 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, as needed to thin out
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp carob flour/powder
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- Shaved chocolate for garnish (optional)
1. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients (starting with 1 & 1/4 cup almond milk) until the clumps are gone. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours, until thick or overnight. Stir well, add more milk if desired to achieve the thickness you desire, and serve chilled. Alternatively you can heat in the microwave and serve it warm. It’s nice with a spoonful of coconut cream mixed in or a mashed banana too.
