Mocha Chia Seed Pudding
This recipe is tasty and requires only six ingredients and a few minutes of preparation. Packed with fiber and protein, you can feel good about eating this pudding for breakfast or dessert.
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 cup brewed coffee, regular or decaf
- 1 cup milk of choice (I love almond, oat or cashew milk as an alternative)
- Pinch of salt
To a Tupperware or bowl that has a lid, add chia seeds, cocoa powder, vanilla and maple syrup. Whisk in coffee and milk until well blended. Cover bowl and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours to let the chia seeds absorb the liquid and the pudding to thicken. When ready to eat, remove from the fridge, mix the pudding again and top with banana or your favorite fruit or nuts. Will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
