Some people have a problem with the texture of soaked chia seeds.

I am not one of those people.

Drown them in milk, cocoa powder and maple syrup and I’ll eat any seed on this earth, regardless of the texture.

I’m a bit behind the times with chia. ABC News named it the ‘It’ food of 2013 (there’s a dubious honour if ever I heard one).

That’s fine. I’ve always been a follower of trends rather than a trend-setter. I’m okay with that.

Chocolate Chia Pudding (makes about a cup)

  • 2 tbsps chia seeds
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Whisk all the above together until well-combined.
  2. Pour into a dish, cover and chill overnight. By morning it will be a gel-like, pudding consistency.
