Super Easy {& Satisfying} Chocolate Chia Pudding for Breakfast

Easy & Satisfying Chia Pudding {Vegan, Gluten-Free}

The ONE thing I have struggled the most since my “trying-very-hard-to-eat-healthier” journey started is breakfast. Growing up we had a lot of what you consider common: “breads, milk, cheese, chocolate, eggs”, that let me feeling bloated and with stomach pain, and dominican favorites like mangú, or other roots with eggs, that although I loved, made me feel too heavy in the morning. The healthiest breakfast we came across at the time was oatmeal porridge, but it was too slimy for my taste. Saying I hated it is probably an understatement… 

I have actually come across chia seeds years ago. Someone told me that it help you lose weight. Just mix it with water, let it rest for a few minutes, and drink it all day long for I don’t remember what long. It seemed easy enough, so I went ahead and bought a huge bag of chia seeds. To make the story short, I hated it and regretted so much to spend my money on that. my first big bag of chia seeds I hated those tiny seeds in my water. 

Thanks God Pinterest exists now to help me feed my inspiration hunger. There I came across this Chocolate Chia Pudding and many other ways to use chia in the kitchen.  Adding chocolate was such a revelation! In case you don’t know chia seeds have the super power of transforming any liquid into a gel-like consistency, so in a few minutes you can make this pudding for breakfast, snack or even dessert. If you want a smooth consistency, you can use a high-speed blender, like Ninja, Vitamix and the like.
