Chocolate Chia Pudding

Creamy, Chocolaty Goodness and It's Healthy Too!

Lately this has been my go to recipe when I am craving a creamy treat and still want to make a healthy choice.  It is very easy to make and satisfies those chocolate cravings with out added sugar.  Liquid stevia gives sweetness to the pudding.  Chia seeds are an ancient power food originally from Mexico.  They are high in fiber, protein, and anti-oxidants.  Research has shown they help to regulate blood sugar levels.  They are also high in omega 3 and other essential fatty acids, which make them an excellent anti- inflammatory food.
