Chocolate Chia Pudding (Gluten Free, Vegan)


Adapted from oh she glows

Gone are the days of making pudding with store-bought packages when we can use the magic of chia seeds to thicken a home-made chocolate pudding. Chia seeds and cocoa powder are super foods, but this recipe tastes so good that it is hard to believe it is healthy for you. I had it for breakfast this morning.

Sansational Tips:

2.  You can find chia seeds at health food stores, some grocery stores, and now even Costco (which has big bags at a decent price).
