Servings: 2 large jars
two jars of chocolate chia pudding topped with fresh strawberries with strawberries around

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup Brazil nuts unsalted
  • 5 dates Medjool
  • 4 mint leaves medium/large
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder unsweetened
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt iodized

Instructions

  • Blend Brazil nuts, water, dates, mint, cacao, salt and cinnamon in a high-speed blender until you achieve a smooth, creamy milk consistency.
  • In two large clean and dry mason jars, add ¼ cup chia seeds.
    If making snack-size versions, add 2 tbsp of chia seeds to four small mason jars.
  • Divide the Brazil nut milk equally among the two large jars.
    If making snack-size versions, divide the milk among the four small jars.
  • Stir well, place the lid and refrigerate for at least three hours or overnight to achieve a thick and creamy consistency. Serve and enjoy with fresh strawberries or your favourite fruits!

Notes

  • You can use any milk to make this chia pudding; oat, coconut or nut milk (soy) would work well.
  • Make sure to use unsalted Brazil nuts (or nuts of choice)
  • The longer you leave this pudding the thicker the texture will become.
  • Mint goes perfectly with chocolate but if you’re not a fan you could try using orange zest which would also work well.
  • Make sure to use pure, unsweetened cocoa powder for best results and nutritional benefits.
