Chef Stefen Janke’s Chocolate Ginger Chia Pudding is a fun treat and a great way to get the nutritious chia seed into your diet. As Homemade Nut Milk simmers on the stove, it is flavored with cocoa powder, cinnamon, ginger and turmeric, and then sweetened with a couple Medjool dates. These elements infuse the pudding with a rich taste, while chia seeds are stirred in for a little bit of texture. Prepare this dessert ahead of time, as two hours of refrigeration is required before the mixture can be pureed, then poured into serving cups and returned to the fridge to set up. Serve with a sprinkle of chia and your favorite colorful fruit. This recipe is wonderful as an everyday dessert, but by giving it a pretty presentation it can also be perfect for a dinner party as an elegant way to end your meal.
