I make a large batch so that I can eat a teacup of it at least once a day during my Luteal Phase. The large amount of fiber and absorptive nature of chia help sweep out excess estrogen and toxins. The protein is awesome to help you create healthy hormones. The chocolate full of rich minerals like magnesium that help ease cramps, just like anti inflammatory cinnamon. I add vanilla to mine because that makes me feel like I’m eating dessert yet it has no sugar! Finally we go with FULL FAT coconut milk because our adrenals need it. Because our gut needs it…
Because our big sexy brains THRIVE ON FAT!
This is perfect PMS food.
I store it in the fridge, then when I need it in the morning I scoop some into a smaller jar, add more milk and shake! It gets REALLY thick after a few days so the extra milk will turn it back into pudding 😉
Here’s the step by step for a Stash sized Chocolate Chia Pudding:
32 oz jar, chia seeds to the 100ml mark
add water, about the same amount as chia and shake, this prevents clumping.
Add a can of FULL FAT coconut milk. Yes I do prefer organic but the market doesn’t always know my photography schedule!
How much is up to you, start with 2 TBS of raw cacao powder, add more if you want it! I also add about 2 TBS of raw cacao nibs, a pinch of cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla powder. (I don’t like the taste of the liquid in raw desserts) and a pinch of pink salt.
Then shake the shit out of it!!!
Add a bit more water if you need to. If it’s to thick move to a bigger jar and add water, if it’s to thin (wait overnight to make that decision) then add more chia! It’s pretty easy to fix <3
This is my favorite Heirloom Raw Cacao, and it’s cheaper than most stores! Small biz run by awesome people. I found them years ago at a farmers market in San Diego, I still order from them. I’ve never had fresher or higher quality from any other supplier.
Here’s a single serving recipe.
1/2c coconut milk -or any milk you like
1/2tsp vanilla powder
1TBS raw cacao
a pinch of saltPlace all of this in a jar and shake! This is your free shoulder and arms workout for the day. You’re welcome!
Add 1 TBS cacao and a pinch of cinnamon for a chocolate version! -to be honest I ALWAYS make the chocolate version 😉 I also add cacao nibs to mine!
As I mentioned before I make this in bulk. When I make the small one for the day I add nuts, cacao nibs, goji berries, hemp seeds, maca, whatever I have on hand and looks good. I encourage you to do the same!
always feel free to top with fresh berries, banana slices, crunchy nuts like almonds or pistachios or even a spoonful of organic peanut butter. You know I’m a crunch girl!
