So I’m gonna just come right out and say that I am in love with this dark chocolate mint chia pudding. Like in LOVE love.
It’s that good.
I know I’ve spoken pretty highly about chocolate chia pudding before. But, then…I added mint and my whole world exploded into mint chocolate chia goodness.
For realz, guys.
If you have yet to try chia pudding for yourself, I sure hope the flavor combo of mint and chocolate entices you to give it a try. It’s sooo good.
But, not only that, it’s also crazy high in fiber and protein, yet relatively low in calories — making it a great breakfast.
Trust me – you’re gonna want this baby often and then some.
Lots of people have asked me what the texture of chia pudding is like. The best way to describe it, I think, is to consider the texture if tapioca and quinoa had a baby. Then, it’d be kinda like chia pudding.
If that just totally got you excited about trying chia pudding, awesome.
If that just totally grossed you out because you can’t stand the idea of those textures, then I have a solution for you 🙂 Just blend this baby in a regular ol’ kitchen blender to make it as smooth as “real” pudding.
Everyone’s a winner here, folks.
