CHOCOLATE CHIA PUDING (VEGAN, PALEO)

This is good! It felt like a science experiment while I was making it, but it’s no cook, chia seeds are incredibly good for you, and the end result reminded me of tapioca pudding (but with much better flavor). I did leave the honey off because I didn’t want it to be too sweet. Plus, my 3 year old daughter loved it too–I’ll make this again.

I love this chia seed pudding! Reminds me of tapioca pudding but chocolate and with tiny little crunchies that I did not find unpleasant, too much, or distracting in any way. To me the crunchies were like little tiny bits of cookie crumbs.

I used half coconut milk and half cow’s milk and sweetened only with coconut sugar (very similar in taste to light brown sugar) to taste. Before serving I stir it up and added a little more milk to loosen it. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did but I really do love it! Can’t wait to experiment with other flavors!
