Coconut Dark Chocolate Chia Pudding – a creamy guilt free dessert that’s dairy free and only 120 calories a serving.
Dessert. It’s kinda my weakness.
Lately, sweets have been a necessity in the evenings. My day is crazy, completely centered around feeding and nap times. After I put the baby and Cason down for the night all I want to do is have a bowl of (dairy free) ice cream or a cookie. In fact, truth be told at 8:45pm last night I totally sat down in bed to talk to my husband with a pint of salted caramel cashew milk ice cream and it was divine. Don’t judge!
Even though ice cream totally satisfies that sweet tooth at night for me, I desperately needed to find something a little healthier to fill that role.
When I was pregnant, I use to have one of those yogurt flips in the evening. It had protein and just the right amount of sweet. But now that I’m trying to go dairy free, for baby purposes, these SILK Almondmilk Yogurt Alternatives are the perfect replacement and leave me feeling less guilty in the evenings.
These yogurt alternatives are great on their own but I had an epiphany the other day.
You guys absolutely loved my Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding so I thought, why not try to find a way to turn these delicious creamy yogurts into a pudding?
I know. I do have my moments.
SILK has five different flavors for these Yogurt Alternatives but the one that caught my eye was the Coconut Dark Chocolate. And … OMGeee is it good. I used that flavor as a base for my pudding, added in some almond milk, chia seeds (duh) and then a little cocoa powder to make it extra chocolate-y.
The more chocolate the better.
I mixed everything together, let it sit overnight and voila a creamy Coconut Dark Chocolate Chia Pudding. Top this pudding with whatever you’d like. I added fresh strawberries for a tart bite and then toasted coconut chips for some crunch. I guarantee it will be a hit with your family (that is, if you decide you want to share.) If you want to keep it all to yourself, I don’t blame you.
If not, it’s a great guilt free dessert option for when the kids go down!
Bon Appetit friends!
