I loves me some chocolate pudding and I'm also interested in using chia seeds so I was eager to try this recipe. I have a mixer at home and I'll use it at the drop of a hat so I did a cheater version and put everything in the mixer bowl and just turned it on every five minutes until it was ready.
I can't really tell you how much sweetener to use - it's a Jersey thing...no, but really, it's personal preference. And I kept adding agave and it just didn't taste right, so I added some Truvia and that did it for me. Wait until it thickens up a little and add the sweetener, mix, taste and then see what more you'd like to do.
OH - and guess what else? I had this after dinner one night and I had energy to get up and go - so out I went grocery shopping - and I also did a lot more chores around the house that night than I usually would so this will give you some 'get up and go'. Best of all, the Kid, who continually mocks my chia gel ate a big bowl of this and thought it was tapioca - so neener neener on her!
One morning I had forgotten to make a new batch of chia gel for my smoothie so I plopped in some of this pudding instead and it worked just fine! Pudding Smoothie, anyone?
