Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Even when I'm trying to be healthful and more health conscious, I still crave sweets. Chia seeds (as in the seeds used in the chia pets) are great way to satisfy my sweet tooth while still getting lots of omega-3's, fiber, and even protein. I got this recipe from Deliciously Organic, which also has a couple different variations of the pudding.

1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I used flax seed milk)
1/3 cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons honey
2 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Follow these directions to keep the seeds whole (they are like little tapioca pearls this way): Whisk all ingredients together and let sit for about 2 hours in the refrigerator. Then serve with some dried fruit on top!

To blend the seeds: Whisk all ingredients together and let sit for aobut 1 hour. Then blend until smooth. Add chocolate chips and dried fruit if desired!
