Healthy Eating: Chocolate and fruit chia seed pudding
2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (oat, hemp, or almond),
4 Tbsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2 handfuls of fresh or frozen fruit
8 Medjool dates (pitted)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Blend all ingredients until smooth texture. Chill for 2 hours. Serve chilled. You may choose to leave out the cacao if you want this to be caffeine free. This recipe is a great snack or dessert. Chia seeds contain a lot of nutrients and protein so a little goes a long way when it comes to meeting protein requirements. Makes four to six servings.
