  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • 1/2 cup fresh red currants or any fruit of choice (optional)

    Batter for preparing chocolate chia pudding with almond milk
  • Remove the chocolate chia pudding from the fridge, stir it well one more time and garnish with some fresh or frozen fruit, chocolate shavings, coconut flakes, or whipped cream. I used fresh red currants. Serve it into small dessert-sized containers. This recipe yields 2 glasses (1/2 cup size). Feel free to double or triple the ingredients for preparing a larger batch to feed a crowd.
