Chocolate Chia Pudding!

 Hey guys! This week I decided to make something super easy (and supposedly healthy). I found this recipe on Pinterest, of course. It's originally from Food Doodles. Chia seeds seem to be all the rage right now, and if they really are as healthy as people are saying, this pudding is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without ruining your diet.
It's so simple, with only 5 ingredients:
Chia seeds
Milk (any kind you want)
Honey (or any other liquid sweetener/sweetener that will dissolve)
Cocoa powder
First measure out 2 tablespoons of chia seeds into a bowl
 Next add 1 cup of milk. The original recipe says you may want to add more if you're leaving it overnight, but I found 1 cup was perfect.
Next add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of honey (or however much you prefer)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Then stir to combine. It takes awhile for the cocoa powder to mix in properly
After leaving it covered in the fridge overnight. 

I really really enjoyed this recipe. It was super fast to make, and it really is filling. It tastes exactly like chocolate pudding you would buy from the store, except I like it better because the chia seeds absorb the liquid and have a texture very similar to tapioca. I'm not sure about the whole chia seed fad that's going on, but if they are as healthy as people are saying, I would absolutely make this pudding again, because it certainly doesn't taste healthy.
