Guilt Free Chocolate Dessert Free of All Top Allergens

A chocolate dessert free of all top allergens. But let’s be serious, I was done at chocolate! I am a chocolate lover through and through so this banana chocolate chia pudding is a no brainer. The slight undertones of banana mixed with the chocolate, leave you hanging on every bite. And you leave guilt free at only 157 calories in every bowl. ( 5P.17C.8F)

How is this possible? I found the perfect milk option that is dairy free, gluten free, nut free, and perfect for this recipe. Let me introduce you to Mooala. The milk brings a slight hint of banana to the to the chocolate and really livens the pudding up.

The pudding is phenomenal on its own topped with a variety of fruits, but you can’t go wrong turning it into a breakfast yogurt parfait with some added protein.

How to Make:

Chia pudding is super simple. Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. You can always change out what type of milk you use, but it may lead to a different consistency. I tried several before landing on Mooala, which I love for the thickness and taste. Some of this depends on the ratio of seeds to milk as well, which you can plan around with depending on your preference for a creamier or thicker pudding.

After you mix in the chia seeds in well, let it sit for 15 min. Then, mix again before covering and putting in your fridge overnight. Then you can add fruit and yogurt and enjoy! 24 hours is when it really thickens up the most. It will keep in the fridge up to 7 days.

Ingredients

  • 474 ml Mooala Milk

Notes

  • Substitutions can always be made: adjust recipe and macros accordingly if you are tracking! 
  • Ratios - I made several batches before landing on the perfect balance of creamy and thick. If you prefer an extra thick pudding, I recommend adding up to a total of 96g chia seeds. 
  • Milk - Other popular choices are plant-based like almond and coconut. 
  • Best order of mixing ingredients: wet to dry for easy mixing
  • Toppings: I like to add fresh fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, or use it as a topping on yogurt or buckwheat.
