This chia pudding is vegan and made with 3 wholesome ingredients: almond milk, chia seeds & YourSuper.com Chocolate Lover Mix. You’ll never guess it’s a healthy snack loaded with protein because all you’ll taste is decadent chocolate!
Have a chocolate craving?
I don’t usually crave specific foods; however, there are times when I really want chocolate.
This recipe satisfies my sweet tooth and provides a nutritious snack. Chia seeds are an extremely nutrient dense food and are low in calories. How’s that for a guilt-free snack indulgence?
According to Healthline.com, these tiny morsels are power packed with yummy goodness. A one-ounce serving (about 2 tablespoons) of chia seeds contains:
Fiber: 11 grams.
Protein: 4 grams.
Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
They also contain zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.
This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate. Plus, chia seeds are most often organic, non-GMO, and naturally gluten free. What a crowd pleaser!
Filled with antioxidants and high in quality protein, chia seeds may actually help you lose weight! I know, I know, you’re thinking this is just too good to be true. Not so. These superfood cuties are overflowing with good stuff to keep you healthy and enjoying a vibrant life.
I love how this recipe does not require a sweetener. Instead, I use YourSuper.com Chocolate Lover Mix. There’s no added sugar in it and the coconut adds the perfect amount of sweet to this recipe. Chocolate Lover superfood powder is an excellent source of antioxidants and essential omega-3 fatty acids (3158mg). The mix is high in vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin E, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Copper and Zinc. How can you resist?
Cozy up with this vegan friendly, omega-3 rich dessert tonight. Each recipe makes one serving.
