Goodness does not need to be complicated and neither do sweet treats! If you have never tried your hand at chia pudding, now is the time. If you have experimented a bit, have you ever added raw cacao? This one ingredient is a total game changer in my book and certainly one you need to try at some point. The beauty of chia pudding is that it makes such a simple straightforward base to a host of inviting flavors. Hold the cacoa if you prefer and consider toasted coconut and mango or a mix of ripe sweet berries. So have some fun, play around with this recipe, but at least once give in to the cacao!
1 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (Califia farms unsweetened almond or organic canned coconut milk happen to be my favorites)
1/4 cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (I recommend Navitas)
Dash of pink Himalayan sea salt
1 tablespoon organic maple syrup or raw honey
Dark Chocolate shavings for garnish (I sub raw cacao nibs and toasted almonds)
