Chocolate PB Chia Seed Pudding

I am not the most adventurous foodie.  It’s not that I’m afraid to try new things, it’s that I hate spending money on food that I end up not liking.  It’s perfectly acceptable to me for Mr. Man to purchase from the store or order a meal that is new and different and then I will try it.  I know, it’s super odd, especially since the money to pay for the food comes from the same place whether he purchased it or I did.  It’s just something I’ve always had a hard time overcoming.

So for a long time, I pinned and oogled over various chia seed pudding recipes, but was too afraid to try them because I had never had chia seed.  Then a few years ago Mr. Man and I decided to do a cleanse and try the whole 30 diet for a summer.  That decision put my food adventures aversion to the test.  I dove face-first into chia seed, and quinoa and all things seedy and new.  I haven’t looked back since.  This chocolate PB chia seed pudding is one of my most favorite daily treats.  It’s healthy and sugar-free.  I will eat it just about any time throughout the day from breakfast to after-dinner dessert.  While adding peanut butter does not make it whole 30 compliant or paleo, a simple substitution of unsweetened almond butter or cashew butter would.

The whole family loves this, even my chocolate loathing son.  I also used the extra dark chocolate cocoa powder.  Between that and the peanut butter, this tastes absolutely decadent and sinful, but it doesn’t have that healthy flavor stigma.  If you make this, let me know your thoughts.  Do you have any must-try chia seed pudding recipes?  Hope y’all are having a happy Monday, friends.
