Low-Carb Overnight Black Forest Mocha Chia Seed Pudding is an elegant breakfast that’s easy enough for any morning.
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream (or you can sub half & half)
  • 3/4 (180 ml) strong brewed coffee, cooled to room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated stevia (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 10 almonds, toasted and chopped (for garnish)
  • 10 cherries, washed, pitted, and halved (for garnish)
Instructions
  1. Stir together the cream, coffee, chia seeds, cocoa powder, stevia, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  3. Transfer to 2 serving glasses, top with the almonds and cherries, and serve.
Notes
Stevia/Sweetness Level: This pudding is a nice balance of flavors, but isn’t overly sweet (which is perfect for me). Taste and add more granulated stevia (or your sweetener of choice) if desired.

Paleo Version: Use unsweetened canned, full-fat coconut milk instead of heavy cream.

To Make This Even Lower in Carbs: Omit the cherries and you’ll be left with the following macros per serving: 244 calories; 2 g net carbs; 22 g fat; 6 g protein.
