This pudding hits the spot fo real.
Picture
2 cups of Milk (almond, hemp, soy, etc)
Chia Seeds 6 tablespoons
Cocoa powder 6 tablespoons
Peanut Butter (or almond butter) 4 tablespoons
sweetner ( i used local honey or agave) to taste
pinch of salt ( i used kelp powder)


Blend baby blend. The chia seeds will make it thick but, the peanut butter is to help it give it that creamy pudding consistency. Scrape the bottom because the chia seeds will not blend completely the first time. I used powdered kelp instead if salt for extra nutrition with a salty flavor, because I misplaced my bag of sea salt so, use what works. There was no fishy taste. I also used coconut milk but, there are so many milk options like hemp and almond that are very nutritious.  If peanut butter is not a good option,use almond butter or some other nut butter. The great thing with these pudding recipes is they are so quick and easy to make. They sure beat the store brand puddings in flavor and health.You can also play around with the ingredients to make sure you have the perfect pudding. There you have a super quick, yummy superfood pudding. Enjoy!

COMMENTARY:I was looking for a healthy vegan chocolate pudding recipe and stumbled across this one. It is off the chain fo real good. It has chocolate and peanut butter so if you love reeses this will hit the spot. Its super nutritious because of the chia seeds which is an amazing superfood I am now in love with. After I ate it, I felt so energized and very happy. I will be incorporating chia seeds into my life like all the time now.

This is an amzing soup. It so easy and so affordable. Top w/ Pine Nuts for extra protein and nutrition. It's vegan and packed full of nutrients. Yummy!

Alternative Version
I didn't have stock or nutmeg so.....I mixed onion, garlic, thyme, water with acorn squash and blended. Then, I simmered with unsweetened almond milk and added cinnamon and some maple syrup. For extra protein for my husband, I added tofu. It was so yummy.

DIRECTIONS: Blend flax seeds( dark one and water in blender for 2-3 minutes to create what will resemble milk. It will look like a creamy mucilage consisitency. It sounds gross but, its wonderful. Don't blend to long it will be to frothy and slimy.  I used @ 1.4 - 1.5 cup flax seeds and half blender filled with filtered water. Once blended, warm on stove.
If it looks watery add more flax seeds, if it's to thick add more water or thin it out with
soy milk, hemp, almond, etc.

In a mug add some cinnamon and sweetener , add warmed flax milk, sprinkle additional cinnamon and soy milk whip cream(optional).
Will make a warm, creamy, super healthy drink that some say taste like a latte.



This is great to have with dinner or before bed for the children. It is also very filling and comforting. Great for replacing junky sweet foods. It is also great for filling up your belly if you are trying to cut calories.
We like to drink warm drinks especially in the winter months. Usually, we will warm soy milk with honey/agave and cinnamon. See my holistic health page for additional health benefits.
