Start your Morning with a Cha-Cha-Cha!
I had so much fun posting the “Seven SuperPowered Breakfasts” last week that I decided to introduce a latecomer: Chocolate Chili Chia Pudding!
½ cup almond milk
½ cup coconut milk
2 Tbs cocoa powder
2/3 Tbs REAL maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ – 1 tsp chili powder
1 pinch of sea salt
½ Tbs dark chocolate shavings/chips (optional)
3 Tbs chia seeds
(This is another recipe that is perfect for storing/transporting/eating from a mason jar.)
Thoroughly mix/blend all ingredients except chia seeds and dark chocolate pieces. After a smooth, chocolate-y liquid is achieved, stir in the chia and dark chocolate. Let rest for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes (the chia will have started to gel and has a tendency to clump together) stir the “pudding” vigorously to ensure chia is evenly dispersed. Seal the container and store in the refrigerator. May be eaten after 2 hrs, for up to 4 days.
this makes a pretty substantial serving… I usually eat half for breakfast and the other half during my afternoon lull…
