Rise & Shine Chia Cacao Pudding


This is the simplest and nutritiously delicious breakfast I can think of at the moment. The night before just add the ingredients, mix and enjoy topped with fresh fruit and superfoods like bee pollen. 

The ratio of chia seeds and milk was something quite tricky when I started since it also depends on the kind of milk you are using. I find the ratio 4 tbsp chia seeds to 1 cup almond/brown rice milk (or any other milk with similar texture) works well.

So here is the summary of the three ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder

Just mix the ingredients thoroughly as chia seeds like to stick together and then the texture doesn't get as smooth and pudding like as it could be:) 

If you like it a bit sweeter, add sweeteners of your choice or just top it with slices of banana, bee pollen, nuts, seeds, cacao nibs or any other superfood sprinkles you enjoy. I love using Rude Health Brown rice milk as it is slightly sweeter than almond milk and I don't feel like I would want it any sweeter. 

Let me know how you like it!
