Low Carb Chocolate Mousse Chia Pudding

I love the taste of chia puddings but when it comes to combining chia seeds with chocolate I struggle a bit with the texture. There is something about the smooth velvety taste of chocolate that I really enjoy so I’ve tried to remove the chia seed texture from the recipe. Having used ground chia seed to thicken recipes before, I decided to try it with a chocolate chia pudding to see if I could produce more of a mousse like texture. It worked really well. If you don’t mind the combination of chia seeds left whole, combined with chocolate then just leave yours whole.

This recipe is just begging to be tweaked to make it just how you like it. Try it topped with strawberries and cream; it’s delicious. Sprinkle with some of your favorite nuts such as almonds or hazelnuts. I love sugar free dark chocolate with raspberries so the addition of these served as a topping make this my ideal dessert or snack. My husband hates chocolate with nuts so I can serve this up in a way that he enjoys it by just varying the topping, not that it even needs one. It is the perfect snack to take to work as well. Craving something for morning tea or for lunch then this would be ideal. I often have a container of some sort of chia pudding in my fridge ready to raid for when I’m looking for a snack or for breakfast on the run. The best thing about this is that it means I’m not likely to eat the wrong foods as there is something that tastes great and is healthy, right at my fingertips.

How To Serve Low Carb Chocolate Mousse Chia Pudding

Serve this topped with some fresh cream or coconut cream and some grated chocolate. Try spooning some Raspberry Chia Jam Spread on top or some fresh raspberries or strawberries. This very easy to make, low carb, sugar free treat has the nutritional advantages to be gained from consuming cacao, such as anti oxidants, it’s mood enhancing qualities plus the many vitamins and minerals such as zinc, vitamin B, potassium and iron. You also get the nutritional benefits from one of my favorite healthy foods, chia seeds. Chia seeds are very high in both omega 3’s and in fibre. The thing I love most about chia is the fact that they are great for increasing your good cholesterol levels (HDL’s.)

If you haven’t tried these other chia bowl/pudding recipes,  Low Carb Chai Chia Pudding and the Low Carb Raspberry Yoghurt Chia Bowl, then I highly recommend you try them as well.

As for this recipe, chocolate mousse that is good for you….what’s not to like about that?
