Ever since I moved to Singapore, I started to become more cautious about what I eat and what I make as the phrase goes, “You Are What You Eat.” And living in Singapore somehow makes it more accessible and more comfortable to live this way (in my opinion 😉)

So when the kitchen is all mine – I started to explore and search for the easy and yet healthy meal/dessert to make. And when it comes to measuring the ingredients, I usually use the recipe as guidelines, but I will still rely on my taste palate. Anyways, then I saw this recipe Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding that I thought looks easy to make, so why not give it a try. 👩🏽‍🍳

Chia Seeds are the tiny black seeds that are packed with essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium (powerful seeds!). And my favorite combo with this is —- Flax seeds, with the same beneficial nutrients as well, if not more than the chia seeds. 😉

An easy recipe that I know everyone can make. You can have it as your breakfast, mid-day snack, or even dessert (whatever you feel like!) It’s naturally sweetened, vegan and gluten-free. And yeah, it’s healthy 😉

So let’s do it!

Ingredients are supernatural to find, and you only need five essential ingredients to make this yummy pudding.

CHOCOLATE CHIA SEED PUDDING

NOTES:
The recipe includes sprinkled nuts, dried cranberries, and teaspoon of yogurt. But feel free to top the pudding with your favorite fruit, nuts or yogurt.
Recipe inspired by Minimalist Baker

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
3-5 Tbsp Maple syrup or Honey (I used honey on my second time making it)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
A pinch sea salt (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1- 2 1/2 tsp flax seeds (optional)
1 1/2 cups Almond milk Original Unsweetened (your preferred brand, it doesn’t have to be as shown in the photo or you can have light coconut milk for creamier texture – depending on your preference!)
1/2 cup chia seeds

INSTRUCTIONS

🔘To a small mixing bowl add cacao powder (sift first to reduce clumps), maple syrup, ground cinnamon, salt, and vanilla and mix to combine. Then add the dairy-free milk at a time and whisk until paste forms. Once it forms, add remaining dairy-free and mix until smooth.
 🔘Add chia seeds and mix once more to combine. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 3-5 hours (until it achieved the pudding-like texture). It may also be helpful to give the mixture an extra whisk/stir once it has been in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.
🔘Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 4-5 days, though best when fresh. Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola, yogurt, or coconut whipped cream.
