Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

One of my favorite, favorite things to do is to create in the kitchen. In the past I have purchased quite a bit of Chia seeds b/c I will get on a kick of wanting to venture out and try some new things. So in our many moves I keep bringing this bulk bag of Chia seeds with me and haven’t really found much I wanted to do with them, until now! I recently discovered a recipe online of this delicious Chocolate Chia Pudding! Its super easy and soooo yummy! It reminds me of “boxed Pillsbury chocolate cake batter” (which I love to eat whenever I have a reason to make a boxed cake mix) I am all about healthy alternatives that I don’t have to feel guilty about eating or about feeding to my kids.

Here is my tweaked version of the recipe….

1 cup Original Almond Milk

10 small pitted dates

1/4 cup chia seeds

3 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

**I put all of this in my Vita-mix and blended it like crazy until smooth. I always taste test and add more of whatever I think it needs to make it fit my taste buds. I promise you will LOVE this and your kids will too! I then put what’s left of my taste testing into a small container and stick it in the refrigerator for later. The one thing I have noticed with this though is when I go to eat it later, I only need a couple of spoonfuls to satisfy my chocolate craving. This recipe definitely makes the favorite list for me and my family!
