Chocolate chia pudding

Chocolate chia pudding

This recipe has only four ingredients – chia seeds, water, cacao powder, and pure stevia. It is better to use real cacao. Chia seeds absorb water. If you add about four times the volume of the seeds as water and then wait twenty minutes, you have a pudding. You can also blend this, or you can let it sit overnight, and it is even more like pudding.

Before you serve it, add a teaspoon or more of dark chocolate powder and another teaspoon or more of good-quality powdered stevia leaf or twelve drops of pure liquid stevia extract. You then have chocolate chia pudding. This can suit both vegans and carnivores at the end of a meal, depending on individual digestion. Nuts and seeds are digested more slowly than beans or meat, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton and food combining.

You can substitute ground flax seeds for the chia seeds or carob powder for the cocoa powder, if you are sensitive to cocoa. See this brief video from Rouxbe, a supplier of online vegan cooking courses, with tips about soaking chia seeds and ground flax seeds. Optionally, you could add fresh fruit or almond butter, as described by The Happy Pear in their chia seed pudding recipe.

Another simple recipe from Indigo Herbs is to make your own raw chocolate. You could substitute stevia for agave and peppermint oil for vanilla.
