Chocolate Peanut Butter Creamy Chia Pudding


Chia seed pudding. You either love it or hate it.

It's the texture, right? Slimy, cold.. But I think it's delicious.



Chocolate Peanut Butter Creamy Chia Pudding


Ever since I have made my matcha and vanilla chia seed pudding, I have been eating chia seed pudding left, right and center. Waiting to take pictures of the pudding seems like a punishment to me, because I want to eat it all in one sitting.

But to all of you who hate the texture, hate the taste, but KNOW that it's good for you and WANT to like it, I have the recipe for you.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Creamy Chia Pudding


I firmly believe that my food processor can do everything. Don't have a pastry blender? Use a food processor. Want to make a smoothie and lost your blender? Use the food processor! Hate chia seed pudding? No problem, USE YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR!

Now in this recipe, I am hiding two ingredients that many people can't deal with. Chia seeds and prunes. Sounds like a weird combo, no?

But I'm telling you, it's not! Hiding ingredients in a chocolate concoction of any kind (like my prune brownies) is always the way to go.

Top this pudding with granola? (Perhaps some pecan cranberry granola?) Droool... This pudding won't last the week.

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Whisk together the milk and chia seeds in a medium bowl. Add in the peanut butter, cocoa powder, prunes and vanilla. Stir a couple of times and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, scrape the contents into a food processor, and process until smooth.
  3. Portion into bowls and top with desired toppings. Serve right away, or store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to serve.

  8. I've only had chia seed pudding once and I wasn't crazy about it, but then again it didn't have chocolate and peanut butter in it!

  10. That´s a lovely idea on how to use chia seeds. I sprinkle it every morning on top of my cereal, but that´s a great idea on how to use it in a different way!

  16. I love chia but never tried making puddings with it. Looks yummy and when I read 'peanut butter' I knew I had to try it! :-)

    I'm following your blog! Thanks for your comment on my Banoffee Tarts recipe.

    Cheers,
    Gemma.

  17. Dear Cathleen, I think that prunes or raisins give cakes a wonderful texture so why not the pudding!
    I am sure this is a satisfying, healthy and delicious dessert or snack.
    I agree about the food processor it is an essential. I have never owned a microwave and of course don't miss it, but I certainly could not do without the food processor.
    Have a beautiful Easter holiday.

  18. I keep hearing how great chia seed pudding is, Kathleen, but still haven't got around to it. Must do that!
    Love the idea of adding peanut butter. Happy Easter!

  19. Hi Cathleen, sounds really good actually, love dried dates in desserts, they do so much for the flavor, I bet prunes are the same. As for chia seeds they are such a great little seed, love them. Lovely recipe, thanks for sharing!

  22. Mmmm, had this for breakfast yesterday, and it was SO good! Changed the recipe a tiny bit, but not enough for the flavours to differ. Posted it up on my blog today:

    Thanks again Cathleen :D I love how the prunes (or dates..which I used) adds a thicker texture to it. I only used four dates, but might add a couple more next time like you did ^ ^ x
