This Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding recipe is perfect for both breakfast and dessert.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know how strong I am advocating for healthy food and ingredients. And today’s recipe is my delicious way to show you what I stand for.
Most of us want to eat healthy at all times. But we also cut corners sometimes, don’t we?
Don’t worry, it’s ok. Everybody does it. And it’s normal because we live hectic lives. Work, gym, children, travel… everything requires time and attention. So we’re not always in the mood for cooking fancy, healthy meals.
That’s when takeaway comes handy. But after that, we feel guilty because it feels like we’ve cheated.
And then there’s breakfast. How easy is it to skip it during those busy mornings when you don’t have the time to put something together or order takeaway? But before skipping it, take a look at how important breakfast is.
Well, there’s a solution for that. We need to cook healthy and tasty food, in the shortest amount of time possible.
Sounds impossible? Trust me it isn’t. And I will prove it with this Chia Seed Pudding Recipe.
This is a healthy breakfast that you can cook in 10 minutes. It’s best to cook it in the evening because it needs to cool in the fridge for a while. It’s best to leave it overnight, so you won’t waste any time in the morning.
You can even take it with you and have it on your way to work.

But before making it, I want to tell you a bit about Chia seeds and why they are so healthy. It’s always best to know as much as possible about what we’re eating, right?
Where do Chia Seeds come from?
These seeds come from the plant Salvia Hispanica. But did you know that they come from ancient times and that the Mayans and Aztecs used to consume it? Chia means Power in Mayan language and they ate it to gain energy and endurance.
They used to call it the “runner’s meal”, because of the energy they got from it. A single spoon of chia seeds was filling enough to support a man throughout the day (nutritionally).
