Chocolate ‘Rolo’ Chia Seeds Pudding – Kids’ New Favorite

Posted in Home Made Cooking | Sweets

After a couple times of making the Quick Coconut Pineapple Chia Seeds Pudding I decided to upgrade the pudding (kid-wise) and use my favorite ingredient in the whole wide world – chocolate.

Yeah yeah, it’s not so healthy right? but really, the pudding is so healthy that a tiny thing like chocolate won’t get in the way would it?

So I made a whole new pudding using sweetened chocolate milk powder (Nesquik and friends) and put a little surprise on the bottom of each cup – a mini ‘Rolo’ chocolate.

Don’t tell anyone, but other than being really delicious, the rolo is there as bait 😉 you see, the kids will have to finish up their whole cup in order to reach the rolo, so the way I see it it’s the holy grail and they are on a mission – will the make it? I bet they will!

This pudding is not only packed yet again with Omega-3, it’s also very filling and delicious – look at that, and adventure and breakfast all in one. Ta-da!

You can of course choose to not use any rolo at all or use an alternative chocolate ‘bait’, everything goes when it comes to chocolate.

  1. I’d love to try this one but have a bit of a fear my son won’t be down with the texture of the chia seeds. Your kids didn’t mind it at all?

      not at all.
      There is a unique texture to it, that’s for sure! But I topped it up with some chocolate syrup for distraction 🙂 it kind of resembles the texture of rice pudding (with the tiny chunks in it) so overall I didn’t get any complains.
