Healthy Chocolate Chia Pudding
Another great recipe for a healthy chia pudding. This time in my favorite, chocolate version. Treat yourself with this tasty chia pudding as a healthy and nutritious breakfast and enjoy the chocolate heaven in your mouth right in the morning.
This chocolate chia pudding tastes just awesome. Add in the strawberries or raspberries and a little bit of coconut and nobody will resist for sure! It contains only 275 kcal per serving, and it boasts high fiber and protein content.
The best of all, only 4 ingredients, 1 bowl and barely 5 minutes of time are enough for this chia pudding. Just mix it all together, let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, and this delicacy is fully prepared for the morning. Actually, it can sit in the refrigerator for a few days (but I think it will not stay there for a long time, at least in our case it doesn't). Prepare it with classic cow milk, or almond, rice or coconut milk - I prefer almond or classic milk in this recipe to avoid beating its chocolate flavor.
Actually, do you know why are chia seeds healthy?
Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids. They are also very rich in fiber, B vitamins, and antioxidants. They contain 5 times more calcium than milk, plus, calcium in chia seeds is easier to digest. If chia seeds are consumed together with carbohydrates, they slow down carbohydrate conversion to simple sugar that is later stored in fat cells. They help you to recharge your energy and to increase concentration, they are suitable for body detoxification and for satisfying hunger while losing weight.
The nutritional values of this chia pudding are calculated using 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 teaspoons of chia seeds. If you prefer more sweet puddings and do not mind more honey, you can still add one more spoon.
- In a small bowl or cup, mix all of the ingredients with a whisk.
- Place the cup (preferable closed) into a refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
- Mix the pudding thoroughly before consuming.
- The denser the pudding you want, the more chia seeds you need to add in, and vice versa.
