First Time Mom and Losing It: Healthy Cacao Dark Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding

Healthy Cacao Dark Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding



I have been substituting healthier ingredients into my old recipes like agave syrup for white sugar and almond milk for whole milk. I recently got a chance to try Cacao powder so I decided to create a healthy chocolate pudding out of it.


Cacao powder is so much better for you than just cocoa powder. Pure Natural Cacao is an Antioxidant Superfood Rich in Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Copper & other Nutrients that can help keep you healthy.The minerals & flavonoids in Freedom Superfoods is highly alkalizing so it can help with sleep and energy. Some people who have tried the Cacao powder have noticed a decrease in appetite.


Healthy Dark Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 3 tblsp cacao powder
  • 16 drops liquid Stevia
  • 1/4 chia seed
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
  • coconut flakes (optional: for garnish)
Directions: 
  1. Mix all of the ingredients except for the coconut flakes and agave syrup. I use a mason jar, cover it and shake it to mix. 
  2. Place in the refridgerator for at least 6 hours. 
  3. Drizzle in agave and mix. If you want it thicker place back in the fridge and let sit longer. 
  4. Divide into two dessert cups and sprinkle with coconut flakes to garnish. 

The Freedom SuperFoods Cacao powder is delivered in a heavy-duty, re-sealable stand-up pouch. This makes it easy to store and doesn't take up much space. Also helps your cacao stay fresh. When you order now, know that you're protected by a 60 day, no questions ask money back guarantee - even if you return the pouch completely empty. You can purchase your own bag of cacao powder on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/cacao-powder-raw-organic-non-fermented/dp/b00ho22m2g/

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  20. I¨ve been replacing/downsizing white sugar lately too. Almond milk is very difficult to find here so I´m still using regular milk. Funny the difference one letter can make between cacao and cocoa powders. ;) I´ve only tried chia seeds in cookies so far.

  22. I have a bunch of mason jars and I love the idea of using them to shake ingredients. I usually mix in a bowl and make a huge mess.

  23. I have some chia seeds, but I think that I'd swap out for the stevia (maybe honey?). I'm trying to get the family interested in chia seeds, so far not winning though, maybe this will do the trick.
