Chocolate pudding

The easiest pudding recipe I have found. No cooking, blend the ingredients, and refrigerate. I found it best if you let it set 4 – 6 hours.

Ingredients

1 can whole fat coconut milk 13.5 oz

3-4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (depends on taste)

2 tbsp chia seeds (an excellent source of Omega vitamins. I found them at Whole Foods)

2 tbsp maple syrup OR 3  dates pitted, soaked in water, and mashed.

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

Put all ingredients in a blender and let it fly. Take your time blending and check to make sure you can’t see big chia seeds. The chia seeds, when mixed with liquid, expand and help bind the pudding much like gelatin but a healthier alternative.

Place in fridge to set for 4 to 6 hours. This pudding “melts” if you leave it out so serve right from fridge. Add berries, bananas, chocolate shavings, or nothing at all.
