Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding

New discovery in a healthy food world - Chia Seeds. Little, tasteless grain which can be used in many different ways. It was my first cooking experience with Chia seeds and I must say I’m quite impressed. Lovely, creamy pudding, that can be eaten as a breakfast too. It’s incredibly easy to make, but its a pudding for well organised as you need to soak it over night.  The cherry topping is optional (it will add few carbs) but it gives nice, sharp flavour. Worth adding, even if it is just a little bit ;-)

Ingredients (2 portions):

Chia pudding:

Cherries topping:
  • 50g sour cherries (I used frozen)
  • 1 tbsp erythritol
  • Pinch of Xantan Gum 

Preparation:
  • Mix the coconut milk, milk, cocoa powder and chia seeds together and leave it for 20 minutes.
  • Add erythritol and strir well. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate overnight.
  • For the topping:
  • Boil cherries with erythritol for a couple of minutes (add one or two tablespoons of water if needed). Sprinkle with Xantam Gum and stir well. Let it cool down before serving
  • Serve the pudding in a glass with a bit of cherries on the top.

Enjoy :)
