Recipe: Choc Chia Cups, fRg 3.8


Breakfast or Dessert?

Can’t decide? Never mind, take a few spoonfuls while you’re thinking about it. These delicious cups are easy to make ahead of time and store in the fridge.

How to make Choc Chia Cups

Prep time: 10 minutes. Serves four.

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blueberries (or other berries)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted almond flakes
  1. To enjoy the full texture of chia seeds, don’t use a blender. Just a bowl and whisk. Great as a dessert – or a ready made breakfast.
  2. In a large bowl place chia seeds, cocoa, almond milk, banana, vanilla and cinnamon – then whisk briskly.
  3. Divide mixture among four little jars – or glasses and cover each with cling wrap. Refrigerate for ~4  hours – or overnight.
  4. Serve with lots of blueberries and toasted almonds (to offset the high-ranking cocoa).

  1. chocolate chia looks AMAZING!! but what would be a good substitute for the almonds & almond milk (i get horrid cold sores from almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts) 😦 I can have cashews & pistachios and we think macadamia nuts but i haven’t tried yet.
    i love your website!! thank you!!!!

    • Hi Erin – thanks for your kind words . . . to adapt this recipe, substitute the almond flakes for toasted hazelnuts toget that crunch – and substitute almond milk with soy milk. It will take the fRg up a little – but still better than most desserts!
      Enjoy!
