Ingredients

To make this healthy berry chocolate chia pudding you will need:

Ingredients

1/3 cup chia seeds

3 tablespoons of unsweetened cacao powder

6 dates, pitted

3 tablespoons almond butter

1/2 ripe medium avocado, halved and pitted

1 1/2 cups almond milk, unsweetened

1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen berries of your choice (strawberries, goji berries, cherries, raspberries, or other berries)

optional : 1 can coconut milk, stored in the fridge (to make the coconut cream topping)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients, except for the chia seeds and the coconut milk, to your food processor or blender. Blend until the mixture is completely smooth.
  2. Incorporate the chia seeds to the mixture, and with a spatula, mix thoroughly.
  3. Divide into four portions/cups, and refrigerate overnight, or for a minimum of 8 hours.

To prepare the coconut cream :

  1. Pour the cold coconut paste, without the clear liquid, into a bowl or small blender (Nutribullet), add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar or any sweetener of your choice, and whip until it becomes a soft white cream.
  2. Top your chia puddings with the coconut cream and some fresh or dried fruit.
  3. Enjoy your berry chocolate chia pudding!
