Chia Pudding

Dessert cravings last night got my creative juices flowing! This pudding is so tasty, you’d think it shouldn’t be allowed on a sugar detox (or maybe those are my deprived taste buds talking). In any case, I think this is a great treat to enjoy on the sugar detox when you’ve already had your fruit for the day. If you’re not avoiding sweeteners, go ahead and add in some stevia or honey. Toss in some berries, too!

Basic recipe:
2 tbs chia seeds
1/4 c coconut water
1/4 c whole milk, coconut milk, or almond milk
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

Combine ingredients and stir vigorously to combine. Refrigerate for 15 mins up to overnight to obtain desired consistency.

This pudding is fun to eat, kinda like tapioca. Chia seeds have a fabulous nutrition profile and fill your stomach with fiber, so you can indulge knowing you’re actually having a nutrition dense snack!
