Recipe by Jo Feehan

These choc cherry chia puddings are a perfect, healthy dessert, or even a tasty breakfast.  Start the pudding the night before.

  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 6 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • Cherry Chia Jam:
  • 2 cups fresh sweet cherries, pitted and de-stemmed
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or more, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Garnishes:
  • fresh cherries, pitted and diced
  • cacao nibs

In a medium-sized airtight container, whisk together the coconut milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, cacao powder, and cacao nibs (if using) until all of the chia seeds are free-floating within the liquid and there are no lumps. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Whisk thoroughly after refrigerating.

For the Cherry Chia Jam

In a high-powered blender or food processor, combine the fresh cherries and maple syrup. Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until completely smooth. Pour into an airtight container and whisk in the chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

To Assemble your choc cherry chia pudding:
