Vegan Chocolate

Chocolate is healthier than most people think. The dairy and sugar in conventional chocolate aren’t all that great, but vegan chocolate that’s sweetened more naturally is da bomb. Look at the nutrients that are in cocoa. 

cocoa powder

Cocoa powder, which is used in this recipe, is cacao that has had the fat removed. The dry powder that remains is full of delicious chocolate flavor and all the good stuff, nutritionally speaking.

… there is an abundant supply of the minerals manganese, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus.

Chia seeds are what make this pudding-like. They’re naturally gelatinous when exposed to liquid. Chia is also a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids which are great for brain and heart health and lots of other good things

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds used to be hard to find, but now they’re commonly in most local grocery stores.

I’ve also added some hemp seeds for even more omega-3s as well as delicious creamy flavor. Hemp seeds contain a lot of tasty nutrition

They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).

When I’m jonesing bad for chocolate, this hits the spot. It’s super-rich and chocolately, for sure.

I’ve added some raspberries because I had a lot from a recent trip to a raspberry farm. But use what you like and what you have. Just about any fruit would be tasty here.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plant-based milk, or more for blending almond, coconut, soy, hemp, etc
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup ground chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds or hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • stevia for optional extra sweetness, add to taste
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds or hemp hearts for garnish, optional
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds for garnish, optional
  • 2 tbsp fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish, optional
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup for drizzling

Instructions

  1. In a bullet type blender, process the milk, cocoa powder, ground chia seeds, hemp seeds, maple syrup, salt, vanilla, and optional stevia until very smooth.

  2. Let rest for 5-10 minutes. The chia seeds will gel up and make this pudding-like. If the mix is too thick for your taste, just add a bit more milk until just right.

  3. Divide between bowls and garnish with chia and hemp seeds and chopped almonds. Add fresh or frozen raspberries, if you have them. Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
