Mood Boosting Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

This Summer, my love for chia seed pudding has grown tremendously and today, I’m sharing my favourite way to make it. Chia seed pudding is perfect as a super easy + healthy breakfast or as a delicious dairy-free, vegan dessert.

It will keep you full for long and ensure loads of energy for the day. I like to prepare it before I go to bed, so the pudding is ready for me the next morning. I mix the pudding together and place it in the fridge, but I will wait and chop the fruit just before serving to keep it as fresh as possible.

I often enjoy it after my morning workout and some days I like to stir in some unflavored Protein powder for muscle strength or some Collagen Peptides which are great for joint functioning, gut health and beautiful skin.

Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants, fiber, calcium, manganese and healthy fats, which helps you stay energized throughout the day. Because they’re high in healthy fats and fibers they’re great for digestion. They also help balance blood sugar and keep my sweet tooth under control.

How To Make Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding With Fresh Fruit

Once you realize how easy it is to make chia seed pudding you’ll find yourself making it often. In this recipe I use organic Oat milk. (I love Jörd Oat Drink by Arla), but you can use any kind of milk like Almond, Rice, Cashew and Coconut milk.

Step 1: Add 1/2 cup oat milk and 2 tbsp chia seeds to a small bowl or a glass.

Step 2: Add 1 tbsp organic Oatmeal + 1 tbsp Sunflower seeds and 1 tsp of organic RAW Cacao powder.

Step 4: Now, stir in any optional sweeteners, like maple syrup and/or vanilla extract.

Step 3: Let sit for a couple of hours or overnight in the fridge, and stir a few times during the first 10 minutes as well as just before serving.

Step 4: Lastly, before serving; top the chia pudding with fresh fruit, a few dark chocolate chunks and a bit of Marple sirup. Alternatively you can add “Bodylab Zero” from Bodylab which is a low calorie topping. I like to use the flavours Salted Caramel or Chocolate.

In this recipe I’ve added chopped Strawberries, Kiwi, and Blueberries to both the bottom of the glass and the top – it just makes it extra yummi.

I like to say that eating this delicious Chia pudding feels like an act of self love – it truly boost your mood AND your tastebuds.

Of course, depending on what kind of fruit you like, you can also add chopped Banana, apple, raspberry, melon and orange. And if you want to be even more healthy you can leave out the sweeteners and the chocolate chunks. Be playful and enjoy.
