Healthy Chocolate & Chia Dessert

One of my greatest health challenges is balancing my adoration of all things chocolate with my love for being fit. I eat chocolate nearly every day, but I make an effort to be reasonable. Recently, while under the spell of a chocolate craving, I came up with a recipe that is healthy, decadent and delicious.

 Chocolate & Chia Dessert

Chocolate Mousse w/ WatermelonHealthy Chocolate Mousse Nutrition Facts

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • ~1/4 cup Water
  • 1 tbsp. 100% Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1-2 tsp. Brown Sugar/Table Sugar/ Sweetener of Choice

Directions:

  1. Put chia seeds in bowl.
  2. Add water to form gelatinous substance.
  3. Add cocoa powder.
  4. Add sugar/sweetener.
  5. Mix until it is consistent in distribution of ingredients/texture.

You can add fruit to the mixture, such as coconut flakes. It goes well with fruit on the side to balance out the richness of it.
