Chocolate hazelnut chia pudding

Sundays are sweet – the best day to be off of work – if you ask me. It’s the easiest day to forget your worries (and stuff you have to do!) and just kick back & relax.

Why not add some sweet to your sunday? 

This is a super delicious chia pudding recipe I created that will fill you up and satisfy your sweet toth. x10.

This can be remixed by using any other kind of plant based milk. I used hazelnut because I thought it would be amazing. You can also switch up the type of nut used…more on that later. 

Chocolate Hazelnut Chia pudding 

What you’ll need to succeed

  • A jar – at least 500 mL or airtight container with a lid
  • Utensil to mix with (I used a plain old table spoon)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hazelnut chocolate milk
  • 2.25 (2 1/4) tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 banana
  • Some granola (I used approx 3-4 tbsp)
  • Nuts (I used 1 handful walnuts + crush about 1/2 a handful of pecans for topping)
  • Cinnamon for topping
  • Optional:
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips for topping
  • Vegan Marshmellows – ripped into 4 pieces :-O

Instructions

  1. Add about 3/4 chocolate hazelnut milk to container
  2. Add Chia seeds
  3. Add remaining hazelnut milk
  4. Mix with utensil
  5. Open + chop up banana – I personally just ripped it up with my bare hands and tossed it in.  0 f^cks….
  6. Give it another mix with your utensil
  7. Add your granola (and p.s. feel free to add more if wanted!)
  8. Then add your nut of choice
  9. Add your chocolate chips and vegan marshmellows
  10. Lastly, topp with crushed pecans
  11. Shake some cinnamon on top and give yourself a high five for being so great.

Refridgerate for at least 1/2 hr prior eating – so that the chia has a bit of time to expand. The longer the better (that being said – I wouldn’t refridgerate this for 20 hrs…. If you’re wanting to make it overnight – do just the chia and the hazelnut milk.)
GIve it a big stir before eating and mix it all up. Aweee yeahhhhh.

Sky is the limit….
For the nut component – don’t be afraid to experiment. I’ve also tried almonds and cashews in different experiments. Both were super good. 

Serves 1 – or maybe 2 kids…
