RASPBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIA PUDDING

I can always find a just point for eating copious amounts of the things I love.  Though the obsessiveness I often display with my favorite foods could be labeled “medicated illness” I like to think of it as “dedicated eating”. As you are aware my current dedicated eating project is: Raspberries!!

Raspberries are little nutritional bombs. Like most fruit, they are a good source of fiber , which is a necessity for optimal health(being regular is sexy). Raspberries contain vitamin C (tissue lovers), and other antioxidants (free radical ninjas), along with  B vitamins, manganese, folate, potassium, copper, and the list goes on. So, take some initiative and dedicate some of your eating to raspberries.

(Disclaimer: fruit and vegetables contain different types and levels of nutrients, your best bet is to consume a variety of each)

RASPBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIA PUDDING

3/4 CUP Fresh Raspberries (or thawed)

1 Can Light Coconut Milk (or your choice of raw nut milk, if you use canned coconut milk it is not raw)

2 TBSP Raw Cocoa Powder

1 Vanilla Bean (or 1 TSP vanilla extract)

2-4 TBSP Agave (or sweetener of choice)

4 TBSP Chia Seeds

Place raspberries in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a nut-milk bag and squeeze the juice back into the blender to rid of the seeds. Add the remaining ingredients, except the chia seeds in the blender.  Blend until smooth.

Pour your mixture into a bowl and add your chia seeds, stirring well to combine.

Allow your mixture to sit out for approximately 1/2 an hour stirring every 10 minutes. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving. I stirred in some cocoa nibs and raspberries.

  1. This looks so indulgent yet good-for-you at the same time! I have yet to make a chia pudding (gasp!), so I think it’s high time I get to it. Thank you for the recipe!
