Raspberry Chocolate Chia Dream!

PureSense Health - Chocolate Chia Dream Pudding
Mmmmm…Chocolate Chia Seed Raspberry Parfait.

This chia parfait is healthy, will help satisfy that sweet tooth, increase your energy levels and keep you feeling full. I just had it as an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee. 🙂

Here are two super-simple ways on how to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½  cups Silk “True Almond- Dark Chocolate Milk.”
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

or

  • 1 ½  cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or use some homemade almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp 100% pure raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp 100% all natural maple syrup (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together and place in a sealed container in the fridge overnight.  The chia seeds will expand absorbing the liquid making a thick creamy pudding-like texture. 
  2. Re-stir the next day prior to serving.  You may also add a little more almond milk if you find the consistency is too thick.
I like to make the chia pudding ahead of time and enjoy it as a snack or even serve as dessert in little glass bowls.  Just before I serve them, I top with fresh fruit, a tad of whip cream and a dash of cinnamon! ♥
 
There are just so many reasons as to why this delicious chocolaty pudding has been given an A+ in nutrition.  For starters, raw cacao power provides the body with a good dose of much-needed, stress-relieving magnesium, your B vitamins, protein and fibre. The almond milk used, is an excellent source of calcium, vitamin D and B12. Finally, chia seeds are these tiny little, nutrient-dense seeds that provide the body with some BIG health benefits. Here are just a few:
  1. They help increase overall energy levels in the body.
  2. Reduce your risk of heart disease.
  3. Aid in cleansing the body.
  4. Lower your cholesterol.
  5. They’re high in iron.
  6. Super high in fibre. (Contain up to 5g of fibre per tbsp!)
  7. Antioxidant rich.
  8. Excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.
  9. Contain protein.
  10. A source of calcium and magnesium.
