Let’s talk Chocolate…

I think everybody needs a little chocolate in their lives, but that’s just my opinion. Btw, when I speak of chocolate I mean the real stuff. I use 100% cacao powder all the time and YES, it’s bitter but that’s how I like it. Look for a minimum of 60% cacao and you should be good.

  1. Yes, everyone needs chocolate. Anytime I try to give it up, I just want it more so I try to eat a little every day. This is an awesome, healthy way for me to get my fix! Thanks!

  2. Yummm. I need some of this! I guess I should just start making some chia pudding and this recipe will be my first one to try!

  3. I wonder if I could trick my husband into eating this. If I say “chia” he usually puts whatever it is back in the fridge and refuses to eat it… men. 🙂

    1. Hahaha… yep, know exactly what you mean. He won’t be able to taste or feel the texture of the chia.

  4. what a lovely way to make a dessert healthier. I have some chia seeds in the pantry too….

  5. Oh this pudding sounds amazing! Like way too good, like the fact that it is vegan and gluten free. Gonna have to give this a try 🙂
