If you’re looking for an easy, healthy, delicious dessert that you can whip up in seconds this holiday season, I’ve got the perfect recipe for you! With just four natural ingredients, this pudding avoids all the nasty artificial additives, sweeteners and preservatives in most store-bought desserts plus it’s sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free! Chia seeds are a fantastic source of fibre, protein, omega-3 fats, minerals and antioxidants. Why not get your nutrients AND an irresistible dessert all in one?
3/4 cup chia seeds
4 cups light coconut milk
3 tbsp cacao powder
Pinch of stevia extract or 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
Topping: cacao nibs, coconut yoghurt and/or berries
1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and stir thoroughly until mixture is smooth with no lumps.
2. Place bowl in the fridge for one hour then scoop into shallow glasses.
3. Decorate with topping of your choice (I use either cacao nibs, coconut yoghurt, fresh berries or I make a warm berry sauce) and enjoy!
