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!

How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Chia Dessert 

Mix together unsweetened almond milk, cocoa powder, and sugar free sweetening syrup (try my low carb simple syrup or Da Vinci Sugar Free Sweetening Syrup) in a blender. You could also use liquid stevia but you'd only need a few drops. 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.Low Carb Chocolate Chia Dessert - high in fiber and sugar free!

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 place in the fridge. Give it a stir after an hour, then return it to the fridge and leave overnight.

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 2g 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!

When made precisely according to instructions, the result was runny in the morning. I feel this recipe may be a good starting point, but will utilize info from other chocolate chia (low carb) recipes to hopefully end up with a better result. Am always disappointed when online recipes fail, for whatever reason, but usually learn something during the process. Hope springs eternal!

However, I will add this recipe to my list to check over and see if I can add any extra information to help.

Can I use powdered sweetener (Stevia) instead of liquid? Would the outcome change? Thanks

I haven't tried it, and the outcome would depend on how much you use - but I bet it would be possible!
