Chocolate PB Chia Pudding

So, my first attempt at chia pudding was mostly a thumbs down from the family.  Nevertheless, I gave a different concoction a go and this one was a thumbs up!  Yay!  All the health benefits of chia seeds and a wonderful dessert after dinner.

If you aren’t familiar with chia seeds, they get thick when liquids are added… hence the pudding!

  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk of choice
  • 2 heaping Tbsp natural peanut butter (preferably an all peanuts one)
  • 2 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp natural liquid sweetener of choice (maple syrup, agave, honey)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • dash of vanilla
  • optional:  sliced bananas

Combine everything except the bananas in a food processor or blender.  (If you want to avoid using one of those, you can whisk well together the first 4 ingredients and then add the others.)

Place mixture in a glass container in a fridge.  Allow to sit for at least 3 hours.  Stir well and serve, with fruit if you wish.  Healthy and delicious!
