Healthy Black Velvet Chia Seed Pudding

This Healthy Black Velvet Chia Seed Pudding is lightly sweet, chocolatey, and filling, plus it’s got an amazing thick texture with a slight crunch in every delicious bite!

I know it’s not October and it’s probably not socially acceptable to be posting gothic recipes yet, but hang in there with me y’all.  I couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you!

I call this “Black Velvet” because it’s got the flavor of red velvet — sweet vanilla plus chocolate — but it’s black instead of red!

It’s perfect on its own, but you can take it to the next level by topping it with some coconut whipped cream, freshly sliced strawberries, and a sprinkle of grated chocolate or raw cacao nibs.

This sweet and chocolatey, secret ingredient Healthy Black Velvet Chia Seed Pudding is all natural, sugar free, high protein, gluten free, AND vegan, but you'd never know it. Black Velvet is just like red velvet, only jet-black! -- Healthy Dessert Recipes with sugar free, low calorie, low fat, high protein, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and raw options at the Desserts With Benefits Blog (www.DessertsWithBenefits.com)
