I can hear you saying ‘that looks minging’ but trust me on this one, it tastes fab! It has a spoonful missing already because I forgot to take a photo before I dug in!
I’ve been adding chia seeds to my porridge for a while and wondering what else to do with them. I stumbled across this recipe on Facebook and it really couldn’t be easier. It makes a lovely satisfying chocolate pud. Chia seeds are said to have lots of health benefits. They are rich in Omega 3 which is key to maintaining a healthy cholesterol and are a protein, so keep you fuller for longer than carbs.
One jar with a lid – I used a Kilner jar
One and a quarter cups of coconut milk (the drink you get in cartons)
One tablespoon of maple syrup (don’t skimp on the quality)
Three tablespoons of cocoa powder (again, use the proper stuff)
A quarter of a cup of chia seeds (they sell them in Holland & Barrett)
A quarter of a teaspoon of salt (this brings out the flavour of the chocolate I believe)
Put the lid on the jar and shake it, then put it in the fridge for four hours, or overnight. That’s it. A little miracle.
Let me know if you give it a go.
