You may have heard of chia pudding. Yes the chia pet seed that is touted for its health properties in the media. This is my version for those who want a chocolate treat and still limit excessive fat, sugar, and salt. A chocolate fix.
This recipe makes a cup of pudding. A half cup serving is about 177 calories. Less fat of your 280 calories of home style chocolate pudding.
Add more maple syrup if you want and can have more sweetener. It has a texture of tapioca pudding.
