Rich, chocolaty and just amazing, MACA infused Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding is one HEALTHY superfood-filled breakfast. This easy to make chia pudding is filled with powerful antioxidants and wonderful flavors, very nutritious and so good. Refined sugar-free and vegan, it’s the PERFECT treat!
When it comes to chia seeds, I’m the biggest fan…. and the vigorous advocate of eating this nutritious wonder. How not to be the fan of such an incredible little plant? I mean, these tiny little black seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fibers, proteins, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Also, they are high in antioxidants and have sooo many benefits for our health.
Chia seeds were the first healthy superfood that I integrated into my healthy eating diet when I started with new lifestyle years ago. I never regret the day when I bought the first bag of chia seeds – they were so expensive back then. Chia seed was, and still are the stable in my kitchen, and they are almost daily on my menu.
I fancy boosting my Blueberry Banana Smoothie with chia superpowers, or having a warm toast with Blackberry Chia Seed Jam and cup of black tea in the morning. Sometimes I just sprinkle my salads with chia seeds, but above all, I loveeee a wondrous chia seed pudding. Like in this chocolaty, maca infused Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding. It’s my fav breakfast at the moment – beside Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats.
This chia seed pudding has ALL the best flavors mixed in one bowl – peanut butter, banana, and chocolate. Just one BIG YUM!
To make this chia seed pudding totally incredible, I boosted it with amazing superfoods. Beside wonderful chia seeds – rich in fibers, proteins and omega-3 fatty acids (aka HEALTHY fats) – I used natural creamy peanut butter (the one without added sugars and oils) bursting with fatty energy, and antioxidant-rich raw cacao powder. Also, I enhance this Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding furthermore with maca powder. It’s like one big antioxidant, mood boosting, super blasting, power bowl. Yeah, all that!
The taste is beyond amazing. Its sweet, incredibly creamy, earthy and rich in that deep dark chocolate flavor that we all looove.
The great thing about this Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding is that you can whip up this beauty in no time. Of course, you can make this pudding ahead and leave it refrigerated overnight – even up to five days. But I find it best when it’s served right away. It’s more fresh and creamy that way. If you let it sit in the fridge for too long, it will set more firmly until it’s quite solid. I don’t quite like it, but many people actually do. Either way, it’s HEALTHY, nutritious, and completely guilt-free.
Topped with sliced banana and melted raw chocolate, it feels like you’re having some luxurious chocolate dessert for breakfast. I kinda fancy that!
