Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Milk:

  • 1 c macadamia nuts
  • 3 c water
  • ½ c pitted dates, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp high quality dark cocoa powder or cacao nibs
  • Stevia for added sweetness (use your taste buds to judge; I added almost a pack)
  • dash salt

Pudding:

  • 6 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 c chocolate macadamia nut milk

Instructions

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Milk:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a VitaMix for a few minutes, till very smooth. You CAN strain through a nutmilk bag, but you definitely don’t have to. If you do strain it, you’ll get about two cups liquid; if you don’t, you’ll have about double. Not straining will yield a richer pudding.

Pudding:

  1. Add chia seeds to the nut milk. Stir. Come back in five minutes, and stir again. Repeat this until the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid, and the pudding has a thick and creamy texture (if it’s runny at all, just add another tablespoon or two of chia seeds).

  2. To make this a peppermint chocolate pudding, just add ¼ tsp peppermint extract to the whole mix (more if you want a mintier flavor).
