Prep time: 5 minutes, plus 15 minutes for pudding to set
- 2 cups of fresh fruit
- 4 teaspoons of chocolate mini-morsels (or 1 teaspoon per serving)
- ½ cup white or black chia seeds
- 2 cups almond milk, or unsweetened coconut milk (coconut water will not work for this recipe – it needs to be coconut milk)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 individual stevia packets
- For the cold pudding:
- 2 cups of your choice of fresh fruit – raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, orange or grapefruit segments
- 1 teaspoon chocolate mini-morsels per serving
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, stevia, and honey.
- Allow to sit for 15 minutes, during which time the seeds will absorb the liquid and it will thicken.
- For the cold chia pudding, layer the pudding and fresh fruit in a dessert bowl and serve.
- For the hot chocolate chia pudding, spoon a serving of the pudding into a cereal bowl and heat in microwave for one minute.
- Sprinkle a teaspoon of chocolate mini-morsels across the pudding and microwave for 30 more seconds.
