Superfood Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding

Superfood Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding recipe


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!



Superfood Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding


3/4 cup coconut milk (you could use almond milk)

Dark Chocolate Chips
