I’m delighted at how easy this chocolate mousse recipe is. I think this will become a quick chocolate fix favorite in my house! Chia seeds are a great ingredient to use in recipes like this because it is a natural thickener. I’ve seen a lot of recipes that include the whole seeds in the pudding, but I must say, I’m not a huge fan of that. I don’t like the little chunks in the pudding (it reminds me of those tapioca balls in boba tea…I’m not a fan). So, I grind the chia seeds in a coffee grinder to make a fine powder and then, viola…problem solved, smooth pudding with no lumps!

**to grind chia seeds blend in a small coffee grinder. This will make a powder that will thicken the mixture and create a jelly-like pudding texture.
1. Mix all ingredients together using a food processor or hand blender ( I used a hand blender). If you want to make peanut butter and chocolate pudding add 2 tbsp peanut butter and 1 extra tbsp of sugar (the saltiness of the peanut butter requires extra sweetener).
2. Place in a bowl or in individual ramekins and put in the fridge to solidify for about 30 minutes-1 hour. I used these 3 inch ramekins.
