Chocolate Avocado Chia Pudding

I’ve recently come around to breakfast puddings for several reasons, not the least of which is that they can be prepared the day before. Though I don’t mind cooking breakfast, there is really something so easy about having it ready the second I come downstairs! One of my favorite flavors of pudding is the chocolate avocado chia pudding. It takes just a few ingredients: grassfed milk, avocado, raw cocoa, and chia seeds, vanilla, and honey, and you are all set.

The other great thing about this pudding is that it is made in the blender. I add all of the ingredients and pureé them together. Then I pop the pudding in the fridge to set overnight! It couldn’t be easier.

I use real grass-fed milk when I make this pudding because I love the flavor and the texture. I also make sure it is grass fed milk because I know that comes from cows that are treated well and graze openly on GMO-free plants. Because of this their milk is naturally chock full of essential vitamins and fatty acids, only adding to the health of my pudding. It also is easier on the environment and for the health of the cows overall.

In fact, whenever I buy any dairy product I do my best to buy only those from grass fed foods because my family and I trust them, and it’s a more natural source of dairy for us. My kids have always been big milk drinkers so it makes sense that puddings and all similar variations are right up their alley. For this reason I am thrilled to share that Munchkin is introducing Munchkin Grass Fed Infant Formula, a new standard in infant formula for your baby’s nutrition. Munchkin Grass Fed will be the only infant formula sold in the U.S. made with milk from 100% certified grass fed cows, and will be available in late spring.

Once my kids got used to the texture of chia seeds they began to enjoy this pudding as well. They now choose to garnish it with anything from chopped nuts to unsweetened shredded coconut. It’s all delicious to them!

    Wow this looks yum! I am going to try it for breakfast tomorrow. We’re usually pancake lovers in our house but you can’t beat an instant breakfast as soon as you get up! Seems a little less guilty too! 🙂
