This Maca Mocha Chia Pudding can be a great dessert, but an even better breakfast option. It tastes similar to tapioca pudding, mousse, and maybe greek yogurt – enough to thrill your taste buds with exquisite flavors. Not only does it taste great, but it also offers the right amount of fiber and protein.
Chia is a powerhouse of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and fiber to help keep the tummy healthy (1). Maca is not only thought to be good for energy but has been known to support hormonal health (2). So, put on your apron and get ready to add some healthy sweetness to your breakfast, helping to ensure you maintain high energy levels all day long!
- ⅓ cup chia seeds
- 1 ⅔ cup vanilla-flavored almond milk
- 3 tbsp cacao powder
- 2 tbsp maca powder
- 2 tsp espresso powder
- A pinch of salt
- 2–3 tbsp honey
- Mix all the ingredients and blend until creamy.
- For an even more healthy version, you can add honey instead of sugar.
- You can add half a sliced banana as a topping or any other fruit of your choice for added health and satiety.
- Refrigerate for at least four hours before enjoying the sumptuous goodness. (This means you can make it in the night for the next morning!)
