If you are going through rough period of craving chocolate, especially if you are dark chocolate lover, I think I have found remedy for you. At least it works for me. This chia pudding with a good amount of real coco-powder, garnished with a grated dark chocolate and sweetened with a natural maple syrup, is wonderfully healthy and satisfying.

Probably the best of all is how easy to make it! Just whip all ingredients together at night, pop in a fridge to swell and, in a morning, you've got yourself real treat. If you are not heavy eater in a morning, this pudding can easily be your breakfast.

What is it?

It is a mix of milk (any kind - real, almond or soy), cocoa powder, chia seeds and maple syrup. 

Taste Description

Taste is very-very chocolaty. It will be even more chocolaty if you sprinkle grated dark chocolate on a top. Although the most striking in this pudding is its tecture - thanks to a chia seeds. They will pop under your teeth - plump, buttery and chocolaty. You will love it, I promise :)

How to Serve

Serve, cold, from a fridge, topped with a chocolate. It will keep in a fridge for at least 3-4 days. 


- If you feel like bright chocolate flavor is not enough, add some cinnamon, or vanilla.

- If, opposite, you feel like impossible happens and it's still is not chocolaty for you, even with addition of grated dark chocolate on top, there is one secret weapon for this too. Drizzle chocolate syrup or chocolate ganache on top, store bought or homemade!
