How not to fall in love with this beautiful dairy-free chocolate pudding??
One of the desserts that I’ve always missed the most is chocolate pudding. I went out for dinner last night and saw this menu on the dessert list and that inspired me to create a healthier version of chocolate pudding with less refined ingredients.
As a dietitian, I just can’t help modifying recipes with healthier ingredients. Needless to say, this recipe has no exception. It takes numerous experiments for me to finally develop a delicious and guilt-free dessert that I can enjoy more often as I wish.
If you have been following my social media on my blogs, Facebook posts, and Instagram posts, I have been talking a lot of about the goodness of chia seeds. So I’m using chia seeds in this recipe to create a creamy gelatin-like texture of pudding with higher protein, soluble fibre, calcium and iron content.
As for chocolate powder, I recommend using low sugar high protein chocolate powder to increase protein content of the recipe. Alternatively, you may consider using cacao powder or carob powder as you wish.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk you can use any non-dairy milk you like
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 scoop dairy free chocolate protein powder or 1/2 cup cacao powder
2 tbsp maple syrup add more if you like it sweeter
1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend into thick smooth consistency.
2. Transfer into a dessert glass bowl.
3. Keep it in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
4. Garnish with blueberries, choc chips, or any preferred toppings and serve immediately.
You may serve with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or chopped fresh fruit, shredded coconut, or even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as desired.
