The creamy coconut milk balances out the rich bitterness of the cacao powder and you can adjust the natural sweetener content to suit your taste buds.
Chia seeds are the main event here with their high protein and fiber content they are great to work into a keto diet.
What are chia seeds?
Chia seeds come from the plant Salvia hispanica, which is, in fact, a member of the mint family. They have so many health benefits. They have a lot of fiber and can help you feel fuller longer.
They are loaded with antioxidants, plant-based protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. (So much fiber, in fact, that there is only one “net carb” per one-ounce serving!)
The best thing about chia seeds is that in the presence of liquid they form a gel called mucilage.
This is what helps to thicken our strawberry chia seed jam, as well as turn this chia pudding into a deliciously creamy keto dessert!
- I like to serve my chocolate chia pudding with coconut yogurt, fresh berries, and raw cocoa nibs. Feel free to use any toppings of your choice – from seasonal fruit to keto brownie pieces! 🙂
- I’m sure you can tweak this Chocolate Chia Pudding Recipe to make it into other flavors.
