Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups are my healthier version of the classic chocolate pudding! They only take 5 minutes to prepare and make the perfect dessert or are amazing for breakfast.
I love being able to adapt many of my favourite desserts (that I can no longer eat) into healthier, gluten and dairy free alternatives.
Today’s recipe, Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups, can now be added to the collection.
Chocolate pudding was one of the desserts that I used to enjoy, especially when I went out for dinner.
The more traditional versions typically contain milk or cream or custard, none of which I can eat. My version is gluten, dairy and sugar free and quite simple to put together.
I hope you like my healthified version – you don’t need to miss out any more!
PS It does make for a pretty yummy breakfast also.
Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup almond milk or your preferred milk
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup or maple syrup
- Prepare the pudding. Place the chia seeds in a small bowl. Add the almond milk, cacao powder and rice malt syrup and mix really well.
- Allow to set. Cover and place in the refrigerator to thicken, approximately 3 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and check that the chia seeds have gelled. Spoon into cups (or ramekins) and serve.
