I usually hesitate to use the word “superfood,” but here’s one that truly might qualify. Made with flavanol-rich cocoa powder and chia seeds, this rich and decadent-tasting dessert is a great source of fiber, omega-3s, and polyphenols. Oh yeah, it’s also vegan, gluten free, and 100% awesome.
Cocoa Chia Pudding
For each serving:
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T. chia seeds
1/2 banana, cut up
Whisk first 4 ingredients together until cocoa is well blended. Then, stir in bananas and pour into serving glasses or cups and refrigerate 1 hour to allow pudding to thicken. Stir once again before serving. Can be made two days ahead.
