Although I normally don’t drink coffee I have to admit that coffee and chocolate is by far one of my favourite combination. You can as little or as much coffee as you like, I prefer adding only a splash just to give the chia pudding that lovely coffee flavour. For the chocolate smoothie I love using One Earth Chocolate Dream blend as apart from having raw cacao it also has carob, vanilla, beetroot, chlorella and baobab.
This smoothie bowl is the perfect indulgent summer breakfast or the perfect afternoon treat!
For the coffee latte chia pudding:
¼ cup of chia seeds
1 heaped tablespoon of coconut yogurt
½ cup of almond milk
A splash of black coffee, add more if you like to have a stronger coffee flavour
1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional)
For the chocolate smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon of almond butter
3 heaped tablespoons of One Earth Chocolate Dream Blend
Almond milk to blend
I personally like to top it with sliced bananas, granola & dark chocolate chunks
Ideally the night before you want to make the café latte chia pudding so it’s nice and creamy In the morning. In a mixing bowl mix the chia seeds with the almond milk, coconut yogurt and the coffee. Mix all together. It’s best to use a whisk to combine all the ingredients together to avoid any lumps.
Cover the bowl with some cling film or a plate and let it sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour or even better overnight. The chia pudding is ready when is thick and gloopy.
To make the smoothie simply place all the ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You can use more or less almond milk depending on how thick you like your smoothie.
To serve pour the smoothie into a bowl and top it with the chia seeds pudding. Add the toppings of your choice and enjoy!
