Chocolate chia pudding

Another wonderful recipe from Oh She Glows. I threw this together in the morning before I left for work and it was perfect for dessert last night. When chia seeds soak they get this almost tapioca texture and they thicken up the liquids with them. This recipe is so simple and is really pretty healthy if you're craving something chocolatey and it's quick and easy to make. I'm actually eating the leftovers right now for second breakfast. Don't judge! I have a dentist appointment for a filling this morning and won't get to eat lunch at a normal time:)

Ingredients: (I modified a few things from the original recipe)

1 1/4 cup to 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, as needed to thin out
1/4 cup chia seeds
3 Tbs cocoa powder
1 Tbs agave nectar
shaved chocolate for garnish (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients (starting with 1 1/4 cup almond milk) until the clumps are gone. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours, until thick or overnight. Stir well, add more milk if desired to achieve the thickness you like and serve chilled. Alternatively you can heat in the microwave and serve it warm. It's nice with a spoonful of coconut cream mixed in or a mashed banana too.
