Today’s healthy snack recipe is a plant based vegan chocolate chia pudding. This vegan dessert or breakfast option makes a great sweet treat without added sugar. PLUS it is high in protein (14 g plant based protein).
The overnight chocolate chia pudding contains 330 calories, 19 g fiber, and is high in omega 3. You can switch the soy milk with any other plant based milk. The chia seed pudding takes about 2 hours to get “jelly” so it is best to prepare this in the evening and leave in the fridge overnight.
I love sweetening my desserts with ripe bananas, maple syrup, or dates. These natural sweeteners are much healthier than sugar because they don’t spike your blood sugar the same way, plus they contain important minerals. I know dealing with sweet cravings is a challenge, but if you have more recipes like this chocolate chia pudding on hand it is super easy to curb these chocolate-sweet cravings.
