We served a chocolate chia seed pudding at Member Appreciation Day. If you find yourself thinking back to it, here is a recipe.
This vegan, sugar–free, gluten–free treat is easy to make and easy to eat. Its short list of ingredients includes items that we always carry at the Market.
The chia seeds give a distinctive texture to the pudding. The recipe is flexible — you can replace the cocoa powder with other delightful ingredients, like fresh or dried fruit, chopped nuts, vanilla extract, coffee powder and/or shredded coconut .
The one thing to remember: allow 3 – 5 hours for it to set to a pudding consistency.
1 can Coconut milk
4 TBSP Chia seeds
4 TBSP cocoa unsweetened powder
maple syrup to taste
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients and blend on high until smooth — 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into a bowl or individual cups; refrigerate until it has the thickness of pudding — 3 to 5 hours (or overnight).
Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Thanks to grocery assistant Kim Furlong for the idea!
