After about two or three weeks or living the Keto lifestyle, you might start looking for something sweet again. I am guessing you are happy with losing those carb cravings, but you remember when you used to have a little dessert at the end of your meal. There are a ton of Keto Chia Pudding recipes out there. But I put my own spin on it, and here it is. My husband always teases me.... "you have to create your own recipe.... you cannot just follow someone else's recipe." It is not that I cannot follow, but a lot of times I have my own thoughts about changes that need to be made. So if you see areas to change my recipe, change away -- I get it.
The great news is this dessert is low in carbs and high in fiber and protein. Chia seeds are good for your belly health; they aid in digestion. They are also high in nutrients for example magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and antioxidants. And maybe the best of all, they are a source of omega 3 fatty acids. So this dessert is packed with goodness, and it satisfies your sweet tooth. Enjoy!
Chocolate Chia Pudding
1 can full fat coconut milk in a can (13.5oz)
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons cocao powder (unsweetened)

Mix ingredients well. Use an emulsifier blended or a high speed blender if you want the pudding to be smooth. Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight.
