Healthy Chocolate Pudding

3 Comments

This healthy chocolate pudding is so good! As a treat is a wonderful dessert or as a snack it satisfies the chocolate/sugar craving when it hits! Go on, try it 🙂 Photo 24-07-2013 19 54 52

Ingredients:

Oats x 8 tbsp
Cocoa x 4 tbsp
Chia seeds x 4 tbsp
Vanilla extract x 4 tsp
Honey/Cane Sugar x 4 tsp
Greek yoghurt x 8 tbsp

* Strawberries to garnish

1. Combine the dry ingredients: oats, cocoa, chia seeds

2. Add the vanilla, honey then yoghurt and stir well to form a paste

3. Place the pudding mix into 4 bowls or cups

4. Quarter the strawberries (or other fruit) and place on top of the pudding mix

This pudding can be made with less cocoa (I like mine quite bitter and strong so I use alot of cocoa). It is similar to my overnight oats recipe that can be found here. As the texture is quite thick fleshier fruits complement it quite well eg strawberries, nectarines, bananas. You could try whizzing the dry ingredients to make a finer texture (like a mousse) and refrigerate it for 2 hours before serving.

From my personal nutrition notes:

Oats are a very healthy carbohydrate and are good for sustained energy release as well as being great for anxiety and mood. Greek yoghurt contains healthy fat, calcium, enzymes. It is a much better alternative to using flour as a pudding base. Honey and cane sugar are healthier natural sweeteners that contain enzymes and nutrients. Chia seeds are little energy powerhouses full of nutrients.
