Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding - Slimming World - Healthy Extra B

Everyone’s heard of ‘Overnight Oats’ right?! Well this Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding is like overnight oats on steroids! Sweet, chocolatey AND healthy it’s gluten free, vegan, low in sugar and fits in with a Slimming World meal plan…what’s not to love?! Just whip it up, pop it in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight if you can) and dig into a tasty treat which can be used as either a deliciously indulgent sounding pudding or a healthy breakfast!

Is This Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding Slimming World Friendly?

Using half of your Healthy Extra A this incredibly filling dish is 8 syns on Slimming World. That might feel quite high, until you think about the fact that it’ll keep you going just about all day AND gets rid of your chocolate cravings. If you ask me that’s better than spending your syns on a chocolate bar any day!

Making This Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding ‘Free From’

I’m getting really into ‘free from’ cooking at the moment and this recipe is a prime example of that! It’s gluten free, dairy free and vegan, so basically it’s a slam dunk on the allergy friendly charts! I’m getting into cooking with free from ingredients because I’m actually going for gluten tests soon to find out whether I’ve got sensitivity to gluten or whether I might have Coeliac disease. I think the latter is unlikely, although it’s always good to know, but I suffer from IBS which we think is either being bought on by gluten or by starchy foods (not specifically the gluten part though).

I’ve made this dairy free and vegan too because it just means that many more people can enjoy it! I’ve also come to realise that many people who need to avoid gluten for medical reasons also have sensitivity or are allergic to dairy as well, so hopefully this ticks a few boxes for lots of people!

Mixing Things Up

The gorgeous thing about this Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding is that it’s a versatile base for any number of different toppings! The recipe makes two and you can see that I topped one with strawberries, bananas and a sprinkling of granola, and the other I added blueberries and a squirt of light squirty cream! Whatever you choose to top the Chocolate and Chia Seed Pudding with just make sure to count any additional syns where necessary!

    28/06/2017 at 6:32 am This looks lovely! Can save 3 syns by removing the chocolate powder and honey and use alpro dark chocolate almond milk instead (healthy extra A - 250mls). One I'm definitely trying tomorrow!
