It’s been ages since I posted a chia recipe! I went through quite a phase last year that resulted in my recipes for Raspberry Chia Drink and Blackberry Chia Pudding. This time I’m going chocolatey – and it is SO good!
Mix together unsweetened almond milk, cocoa powder, and sugar free sweetening syrup (I use Da Vinci brand) in a blender. I recently received a fab Ninja blender for my birthday that has a “single serve” setting – which works so well and is way easier to clean up afterwards. You could stir or whisk it by hand, but cocoa powder can be tricky sometimes to mix evenly, so a blender is ideal.
When the mixture is smooth, add in chia seeds and mix well. I don’t do this in the blender because I love the chia texture. Cover the mixture and leave overnight in the fridge.
The next morning, the chia seeds will have absorbed a lot of the liquid and the mixture will have thickened substantially.
I’ll be honest and say that this probably isn’t a “company” dessert, LOL! But it works well for me either as a solo dessert and I love it for breakfast! You get a dense chocolatey taste for only 1.1g net carbs per serving – because chia seeds are high in fiber but zero carb!
Oh, and variations are easy – try adding a tiny amount of extract like peppermint or orange to get a flavored version!
