Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate Chia Pudding

With Betsy’s chocolate chia pudding we go coco for chocolate and coconut!  This delicious and healthy dessert uses a gluten-free chocolate muffin from Soozy’s along with our delicious Toasted Coconut Cashew Butter Chia Pudding.  Such an amazing treat minus the guilt and it’s even vegan-friendly!

Recipe Ingredients:

2 T Betsy’s Best Toasted Coconut Cashew Butter

1 c coconut milk

1 c greek yogurt, plain

2 T honey or maple syrup

1/2 c mango

1 c spinach or 2 T Koyah Leafy Greens Booster powder

1/2 c chia seeds

Step By Step Chocolate Chia Pudding Recipe Directions:

Step 1Simply mix the ingredients together, and let them rest for a few moments.

Step 2: Stir the mix well with a fork every five minutes or so. At first, it’ll seem far too liquified, but over the course of thirty minutes the chia seeds will plump up, till the pudding resembles tapioca pudding.

To assemble the chocolate chia pudding parfait:

Step 1: Cut muffin in half and place the bottom half in a 4 oz mason jar.

Step 2: Slice strawberries thin and layer around the side of the jar.

Step 3: Layer with 1 T Betsy’s Best Toasted Coconut Cashew Butter and then add 1/4 Cup of chia pudding and top with the top of the muffin.

Step 4: Garnish with a dollop of Betsy’s Best and a strawberry.
