Chia seeds have been gaining a lot of attention in the press lately, and for good reason. These tiny seeds are packed with calcium, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, and magnesium. They also pair well with a wide variety of fun flavors (like chocolate!) to make a simple, tasty, and nutrient-packed pudding for breakfast, snack or dessert. Chocolate for breakfast that is nutritionist-approved may sound too good to be true, but this recipe is packed with good-for-you nutrition to nourish your body and keep you full until lunchtime.
Chocolate with strawberries is one of my favorite flavor combinations (chocolate-covered strawberries, anyone?). You can also use another fruit of your choice for this recipe, such as cherries, raspberries, bananas and more. In the morning you have a breakfast on the go that you can feel good about eating. OR enjoy this chocolaty treat as a healthier dessert or for an afternoon snack. I top mine with cocoa powder, coconut, fresh fruit, and Greek yogurt.
Thanks to my summer intern, Savannah Potts, for putting together this delicious recipe and post!
Combine all ingredients in a container with a lid; stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least overnight or up to 4 days.
So do you like sweet breakfasts, or do you prefer savory? I can go for either, or both!
