Hey all! Hope you’re having a good Thursday!

I just got back from a day with mamacakes – we had a meeting with a new group we’re helping to create that is all about Abundant Living! We have some great ideas for the group which I will definitely be sharing soon. I’m also gearing up for another BOOTCAMP fundraiser for Monday, June 24th ( if you’re in the PGH area – mark your calendars!) so before I get to my to-do list, I wanted to share a new recipe!

If you’re like me, I always crave something sweet after dinner! Plus, I’m always hungry around 9pm every night since I usually eat dinner around 6pm. Without really planning it, once 3 hours hits between meals, I am ready to eat again! Gotta fuel those muscles & listen to what your body is asking for Winking smile I’ve been whipping up some night time puddings lately and LOVING them! I get that chocolate fix along with that sweetness for a perfect way to end the day.

You all know I have a love for chia seeds and if you didn’t know, chia seeds absorb most anything you put them into which makes them a great addition for a perfect pudding! Adding chia seeds to your diet will also add in more fiber, plant based protein, & Omega 3’s! Right after dinner, I whip up a batch of pudding to let sit in the fridge until I’m ready to snack.

Tip: You can multiply this recipe to make enough for a few nights in advance.

I’ve had this picture waiting in my camera roll
(along with about 1,000 others) that I’ve been wanting to share.

  • 1 cup Unsweet Coconut Milk
    • may add more, depending on how thick you want it to be
    • can sub any type of liquid
  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/3 of a large peeled zucchini
    • about 1/2 cup chopped
  • 2 TB Chia Seeds
  • 2 TB Cacao Powder
    • or regular cocoa powder
    • Sometimes I use 1 TB dark cocoa & 1 TB raw cacao powder if I want some dark chocolate flavor!
  • Liquid stevia to taste
    • Can sub any type of sweetener to taste
  • Splash of Vanilla Extract
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon!

You could also add in some protein powder; just make sure to add a bit more liquid!


  • Blend all ingredients in a blender (I used my new ninja but you can use a magic bullet, etc)
  • Once blended, put into the fridge for at least 30 minutes so the chia seeds will “gel” & become thick!
  • Remove from the fridge & enjoy!!

My favorite way to eat this pudding;

I put a big spoonful of nut butter at the bottom of the mug (cause I like to save this part for last) then top it with my chilled chia pudding & sprinkle on some cacao nibs!

Did you know that raw cacao

is great source of fiber?

Chocolate lovers rejoice!

But before you go bite into a highly processed chocolate bar filled with added sugar – I am referring to the raw form of cacao! Winking smile

“The bean of the cacao plant is the nutritional and flavorful source for all chocolate and cocoa products. Cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants and is a good source of dietary fiber. It is also known to be one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium, flavonols, and polyphenols. Unsweetened cacao powder is cold-pressed and milled at low temperatures to protect these nutrients.”[source]

Basically the raw form hasn’t been heated – but I do also enjoy the regular dark cocoa powder you can find in any grocery store! #BeTrueToYou
