A while back, my awesome mother-in-law (MIL) asked me to create a healthy chocolate chia pudding recipe. My MIL loves that my recipes are the easiest out there, and this Keto Chocolate Chia Pudding is as simple as can be. With 6 ingredients total –chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla stevia, water, and salt– you can whip this up in a couple of minutes.
In this recipe, I use stevia rather than maple syrup or honey as I am following a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) Keto Diet. I've been eating this way since 2014, and it feels like another piece of the health puzzle is now in place for me.
This Keto Chocolate Chia Pudding is the perfect dessert, and a functional food as well. Full of healthy insoluble fiber it will kick start your digestive system when things are feeling sluggish!
If you're not a fan of stevia feel free to use maple syrup or honey to sweeten this healthy dessert. I haven't tried it so I'm not sure how much sweetener you'd need in place of stevia. It would also depend on how much of a sweet tooth you have. I would guess a tablespoon or two would suffice.
For this recipe, it's important to blend the coconut milk in a high-powered blender. This way you'll have a smooth and creamy pudding, rather than one with little lumps of coconut milk in it. If you're not a chocolate lover try my regular Chia Pudding recipe.
