Creamy Chocolate Chia Pudding


Ever heard of blended chia pudding? Yes, the original chia pudding became quite famous, but its texture is rather strange. So, some insanely clever foodie decided to whip it up in a blender, thus producing . . .


This. Creamy, chocolatey heaven – that’s healthy enough for breakfast! The chia seeds are packed with protein, calcium, fibre, and omega-3 fatty acids, while the cocoa adds antioxidants.


I love a pinch of coffee and salt in my chocolate concoctions because these add an indescribable depth of flavour. I also topped mine with some buckwheat groats for delicious crunch. Just look at that glossy pudding. How could you say no?
