(From the January 2015 archives)
I am currently curled up in my apartment under a big brown blanket, drinking a cup of sleepy time tea, and awaiting the coming blizzard. It looks like New York will not be hit as hard as originally anticipated, but there will still be some snow and dangerously strong winds outside. So please, everyone – stay inside and cook up some Tasty Meditation recipes! 🙂
Here’s what I made today – Chocolate Chia Pudding. Perfect for evenings when you are stuck inside, want something sweet and chocolately, but don’t want to feel bad about the fact that you’re sitting on your couch watching Netflix instead of busting out your yoga mat and kettlebell (come on, I can’t be the only one).
Chocolate Chia Pudding
1 can light coconut milk
1/3 heaping cup (so a little more than 1/3 cup) chia seeds
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 pieces dark chocolate (I use Dove)
1. Combine coconut milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
2. Divide mixture into three dessert cups. Set in fridge for at least four hours. Place dark chocolate in the fridge, as well.
3. When ready to serve, chop the dark chocolate (careful with that knife!) and sprinkle chocolate chunks and shavings onto the tops of pudding as a garnish.
East coast readers – stay safe!
