I have recently been sent some Dark Chia Seeds* from Focus Supplements Superfood list to try out. They retail at Β£7.99 for 100g and Β£15.99 for 250g.

Chocolate chia seed pudding recipe and giveaway

Chia Seeds have been eaten for thousands of years for their energy-boosting properties. “Chia”, in Mayan, directly translates to “strength”. They are rich in healthy fats, dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins and protein. They are also packed with antioxidants and have both anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties. They can aid with weight loss by reducing appetite due to its protein content.

There are many uses for them such as eating raw as a snack, adding to smoothies and soups to make them more filling and sprinkled on salads. I decided to make chocolate chia pudding with them. You can make it with the seeds as they are or blended. I made both versions and definitely preferred the smoother version. Without being blended the seeds had a slimy texture once soaked.

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

  • 360ml almond milk
  • 60g chia seeds
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3 tbsp. honey

Add all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. If you are blending, mix the honey in after.

Leave uncovered in a fridge for at least 3 hours until it reaches a pudding like consistency.  I left our in overnight.

I also mixed some of the Chia Seeds with massage oil to use as an exfoliator which worked really well without being harsh on the skin.

  2. I eat salads almost every day so I would add them to some of those, to make it a bit different πŸ™‚

  3. I used Chia seeds and Baobab powder sprinkled onto my morning yogurt and I use ground Chia and Flax seeds as an egg substitute when baking, but I am always happy to learn new ways to use them :0)

  4. I think I’d go for some pudding type dish as I’ve a huge fancy on for something like that just now
