We are so excited about publishing our first Celiac Disease ebook that we are sharing gluten-free recipes in advance of our gluten-free focused special deals for October! First up is a coconut, chocolate, chia seed pudding. So much yes!
This is one of three gluten-free, treats (snacks or desserts) we are showcasing at our next Make & Take Meal Prep Workshop but we love it so much we are sharing it with you here too. By the way, this recipe is also dairy-free and vegan! And yes, it can be all these things and still delicious!
If you want to also learn to make Peach (or Pineapple!) Cheesecake and the Peanut Pecan Dream, we invite you to join us at the October 13, 2017 workshop (or see Upcoming Events to find the next workshop!) where you get to make three gluten-free, healthy, and delicious desserts – that can also fit in as a great afternoon snack – and take four meal-prepped treats home with you. You will get the recipes and learn about what makes these treats a healthier option and what’s really going on with sugar and your health.
Yes, I said healthy AND delicious. I mean, where else can you get 10 grams of fiber, 20% of the Daily Value (%DV) for Vitamin D, and 50% of the DV for calcium in a dessert!?? This is one treat you can feel good about giving your little ones (or enjoying for yourself!) because this sugar comes with some solid nutrition as well!
Without further ado – here is the recipe! Click for printer-friendly PDF!

INGREDIENTS & SUPPLIES
1 Mason Jar, 1-cup size
3/4 cup Almond milk, dark chocolate
2 Tbsp Chia seeds
1 packet Alternative sweetener
1 Tbsp Coconut, shredded, no sugar added
1 pinch Salt
2 Tbsp Coconut whipped topping
1. Measure all ingredients except coconut whipped topping into blender

NUTRITION PER SERVING
250 calories, 14 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 trans fat), 0 mg cholesterol, 275 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrates, 10 g fiber, 15 g sugar, 5 g protein plus 50% DV calcium and 20% DV Vitamin D
This will have a slightly “gritty” texture due to grinding the chia seeds, you can skip grinding (and skip alternative sweetener) but you should refrigerate 2 days before serving or pudding will be much more liquid.
Reduce added sugar/carbohydrates by using unsweetened almond milk plus 1 scoop chocolate protein powder.
