Chocolate Strawberry Chia Pudding


In my last few years of physicals I have found out I have high triglycerides. So I was reading that if you have a diet high in omega 3 you can lower your triglycerides. Chia seeds are loaded in Omega 3’s. I also read that if you eat a pound a strawberries in a day you can lower your triglycerides by 20% in a month. Not that I would do that,but hey any bit can help. So I created this chia seed pudding in hopes that it would taste great and then I could get my omega 3’s in.

I mixed together the following ingredients in a medium bowl.

1 cup of coconut milk

 ¼ cup of chia seeds

 2 tablespoons of maple syrup

 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

 ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix really well. Then I put the mixture into two small mason jars. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Then I sliced some strawberries and added them to the top of the mason jars. So after tasting this I would use less cinnamon. It adds something to the pudding I just put a just a pinch to much in. But I wasn’t sure if I would like the texture but after putting in the strawberries and stirring it up I loved it.  I will make this again with less cinnamon.
