Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chia, known as a superfood is wonderful in this Chocolate Chia Pudding recipe. Packed with potassium, fiber and magnesium, these seeds are great for energy, endurance and digestion. While it’s easy to toss them in lemon water (see my recipe for Lemon Water with Chia Seeds). Chia seeds are a great addition in this dessert (or as a healthy breakfast). I used cacao powder which is also a healthy superstar, rich in antioxidants. Make this recipe the night before, and you’ll have a nutritious nondairy creamy chocolate dessert. Happy Friday!!
