Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chia Pudding

Ayushi Gupta-Mehra | The Foodie Diaries
Studded with fibre- and nutrient-rich chia seeds, this deliciously-healthy treat is a cross between a creamy pudding and a Reese’ Peanut Butter Cup.

Servings 2

Ingredients
  

  • tbsp unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 cup plant-based mylk of your choice (I used oat mylk from  Urban Platter)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds (I used the chia seeds from Pink Harvest Farms)
  • 3 tbsp creamy peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter sweetened with jaggery from Praakritik)
  • 2 tbsp honey (I used raw honey from Praakritik)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional; I I used Sprig‘s Extract of Natural Bourbon Vanilla)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • cacao nibs (optional as a topping ; I got mine from Mason & Co)

Instructions
 

  • Sift the cacao powder in a mixing bowl (this will reduce clumps); then add the honey, peanut butter, vanilla and sea salt and whisk to combine well.
  • Next, stream in the oat mylk and whisk until smooth. Then add the chia seeds and give it a good whisk to mix it in. Make sure there are no clumps of chia seeds; instead the chia seeds should be evenly mixed so that they absorb the liquid equally.
  • Pour the chia pudding mixture into your serving bowls of choice and cover with clingfilm. Refrigerate overnight (or for at least a few hours) until the puddings have set.
  • And that’s it! Once set, you can add your favourite toppings – slivered almonds, chopped bananas, a handful of berries… I’m partial to adding unsweetened cacao nibs (think of them as nature’s chocolate chips!) for a woodsy crunch.
