For The Love Of Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups because who doesn’t love chocolate?! I’ve been trying to switch up baked oatmeal and add in more nutrition since banana bread (made with oats) has been happening almost daily lately.
Think you don’t like chia seeds, keep reading!
I’ve been prepping 3-4 For The Love Of Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups a week since mid January, partly for recipe research but there really isn’t a “perfect combo” but instead ones I love for different reason and flexible to use what I have on hand. Perfect for a grab and go breakfast or afternoon snack before barre, or even dessert. When I have time I layer or add toppings, sometimes I even do this ahead once the chia pudding has set.
Chocolate and berries, chocolate and peanut butter, Chocolate and mint (Thin Mint Cocoa Bar In A Jar) and even chocolate with more CHOCOLATE! Pretty much a combo for any craving.
Always a combination for what my body needs too! Packing in my favorite adaptagens, collagen, and “superfoods” that help me keep up with busy mom life and feeling my best.
Lately I’ve been using my fav Rebbl Elixirs packed with maca or reishi because I stocked up on sale and had to use them before they expired and to free space. Otherwise I use other plant-based milks (Ripple Chocolate is especially indulging and a family favorite) and add in Navitas Organics Cacao or Cacao with Reishi, or their Gelatinized Maca. If I’m out I will make homemade cashew or almond milk sweetened with dates. I also like to add in my fav Ancient Nutrition Chocolate Multi Collagen, because I’m aging and it’s now a staple in my life.
Simple or complex all you really need is 2 ingredients, thick chocolate milk and chia seeds! Three if you don’t have chocolate milk and add cacao powder. From their the options are endless and up to you but they’re OPTIONAL!
Not a fan of chia seeds, or think you aren’t, have you tried blending chia pudding? Thick, SMOOTH, creamy chia pudding!
Plus there are so many reasons to love chia seeds.
Chia Seeds are loaded with omega fats, protein, antioxidants and fiber. They are a great source of healthy essential fatty acids, eight times more than salmon! They’re also one of the most digestible plant proteins. The little seeds are also packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants .Chia is the Maya word for strength and it’s so fitting. If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast that will keep you full until lunch try chia seeds! You’re be surprised at how filling they are and they might become one of you favorite new healthy “superfoods”. Cacao is full of minerals and antioxidants and good for stress reduction, energy, and immunity.
Now that you have the basics for chocolate chia pudding take it to the next level, For The Love Of Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups! Add in MORE CHOCOLATE, chocolate peanut butter, whatever you want! I like Cocoa Bar In A Jar PB Cup and Thin Mint, they just made a Brownie Batter so I had to test that too. It’s dairy free and gluten free (vegan too) flavored cacao butter with simple ingredients. If you saw on Instagram I also like to add more chocolate (chopped Hu Kitchen Chocolate Bars) or berries too.
I’m going to have to prep a few extra For The Love Of Chocolate Chia Pudding Cups this week because I have a lot to do with Baby G’s 1st birthday party this weekend and my BIG 40th birthday (age is just a number and not even stressed about it)! Layered cakes, donuts, and everything green will be on repeat along with chocolate and coffee!
