Sometimes you just need something chocolate. This quick dessert makes just enough for one person and it is chocolate overload! It is packed with superfoods too - chia seeds and cacao - and topped with more if you add Goji berries for some crunch. I love how chia seeds magically turn this mixture into a pudding like consistency. Chia seeds have a massive absorptive power, and they are full of fiber, protein, and calcium. I've been adding chia seeds to my smoothies, and I even made jam out of chia seeds last summer, but this was my first attempt at chia seed pudding. I have a feeling this dessert will be on heavy rotation this summer. It is so simple to make and so delicious!
