Decadent Easy Healthy Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding layered with a chocolate base, topped with a creamy vanilla layer followed by whipped coconut cream and cocoa powder. Gluten-free Soy-free Nut-free Dairy-free. Just perfect, isn’t it?
I love eating this pudding for breakfast…yep, you heard me, BREAKFAST! I mean why not? It has all the good stuff in it! Fiber, protein, a bit of carbs, a bit of fat, and a good amount of cocoa powder which provides the caffeine…. breakfast in a jar!
This easy chia pudding has 3 layers. The Chocolate Coffee layer has warmed non-dairy milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, some coffee, maple syrup or another sweetener of choice, and chia seeds. The warmed milk helps the chia seed absorb the liquid evenly and quickly and the pudding thickens within 15 mins!
For the cream layer, I use warmed non-dairy milk, almond extract, a pinch of salt for the cheese flavor, maple syrup, and chia seeds. The almond extract adds a bit of amaretto flavor without the liquor. You can add the extract to either the chocolate layer or the cream layer. The salt adds a slight cream cheese-like flavor which works amazingly. You can omit them for a plain vanilla pudding layer as well. The third layer is some fluffy whipped coconut cream and a dusting of good cocoa! and done.
