This Chocolate Smoothie Chia Pudding is so easy and quick to prepare that requires no baking and only requires few ingredients that can be easily available at your home. This chocolate smoothie chia pudding is so indulgent, chocolaty and packed with nutrients. You can prepare it a night before for a wholesome breakfast for another morning or an evening snack. This chocolate smoothie chia pudding can even stay in fridge for few days. Also, there is no added sugar to this recipe, the sweetness comes from the fruits and dates that are added in it.
Milk is the main essence of a pudding. It gives base and structure to this chocolate smoothie chia pudding. You can try a variety of milk that’s easily available in the market, as per your taste and choice. I have used Nestle toned milk and it perfectly soaked the chia seeds. You can opt for non-dairy and healthier options also, like, oat milk or almond milk.
Chia seeds are a source of fibres, proteins, omega 3, calcium and iron. They are a great way to balance your diet. Apart from the various health benefits, it is the main ingredient that makes this pudding dense and creamy!
They are responsible for the structure of the pudding. Oats are full of fibre and protein and even a small quantity can fill up your stomach nicely. They soak in a lot of liquid and hence, are full of flavour when combined with the right ingredients.
Cocoa powder’s rich taste and aroma is the agent behind ‘I can’t have enough of this pudding’ feeling! So, make sure you pick the right one and add the good flavours to your pudding.
