Chocolate Chia Silk
smoother than silk
Here’s a no guilt way to get your chocolate mousse fix using chia seeds. This is thicker than regular chia pudding because the coconut fat and lecithin form a mousse-like texture that is to live for. Silk is the best way to describe it.
1 Cup Coconut Milk Beverage
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder
2 Tbsp Xylitol Granules*
Few drops Liquid Stevia to taste*
2 Tbsp Lecithin Powder or Granules
Dash of Vanilla Powder or ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
¼ cup Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds
Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs
Process coconut milk, cacao powder, sweetener, lecithin, and vanilla in a blender. Transfer to a small bowl and add chia seeds. Mix well and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. Stir again to remove lumps and then pour into two individual ramekins or small mason jars. Place in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours or until all liquid is absorbed and begins to set.
Top with cacao nibs, chopped nuts, bananas, or berries if desired.
*For this low glycemic dessert, I like to use both xylitol and stevia. You can substitute with another sweetener if you prefer.
If you like a dark chocolate mousse then add a bit more cacao.
