I have a bit of a love/ hate relationship with chia puddings. Simply because it took me a while to get the portion of liquid right for the consistency I wanted, and also because I tend to make too much. This was annoying because you can't really batch cook chia pudding unless you've got a huge family or making some to give away.
This quantity was enough for a few portions, and the consistency was truly pudding-esque vs. a solid clump. This year I've also been using a lot of stevia instead of sugar as I feel like it's a pretty decent substitute. Monk fruit is definitely another option for something that is more "guilt-free" if you will.
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 3/4 cup soy milk
1 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 tsp stevia
Mix together chia seeds, soy milk, cacao and stevia
Leave overnight in the fridge
Top with sliced bananas and cacao nibs or any other fruits/ seeds that you prefer
