Strawberry Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is an amazingly simple dessert that looks utterly impressive. Layer the creamy pudding with fresh strawberries and chocolate and you have a classic combination that will last the test of time. It's a great dessert or birthday party treat to prepare ahead of time. It is also a source of fibre, omega- 3, magnesium and calcium while also being free from gluten and refined sugar.

  • 1 1/2 cups Healtheries 99% Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Baking Bits
  • 4 Tbsp Healtheries Black Chia Seeds
  • 4 Tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200ml milk (reduced fat)*
  • 200ml coconut milk*
  • 18 strawberries (3 per person)

*Instead of using 200ml of milk and 200ml of coconut milk, you may use 400ml of any milk of your choice.

Method

  1. Place 1/2 cup of the chocolate bits into a food processor and blitz until it resembles fine crumbs about the same size as the chia.
  2. To make the chia pudding, place the chia seeds, coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, milk and chocolate crumbs into a medium sized bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge for at least four hours to set, stirring once.
  4. Once the chia pudding is set, remove from the fridge and stir well.
  5. Finely chop 2 strawberries per person. Leave the third strawberry whole with the stalk on it and finely slice it lengthways so it can be used as the final layer (see picture).
  6. To melt the chocolate, heat some water in a small saucepan until simmering. Place the remaining 1 cup of chocolate in a heat- proof bowl over the simmering water. Leave the chocolate to melt for a few minutes then stir gently until all of the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Turn the heat to low to keep the chocolate warm while you assemble the puddings
  7. To assemble, place a dollop of the chia pudding into the bottom of each serving glass. Layer each pudding with a handful of finely chopped strawberries, followed by a tablespoon of the melted chocolate. Repeat the layers in each glass one more time. Finish be nestling the whole strawberry into the final layer of melted chocolate.
  8. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
