Chia Seed Chocolate pudding

DSC_0009.NEF

So, I am seeing a lot of different recipes for Chia Seed Puddings, I use Chia Seeds (Superfood) in my porridge for my breakfast but never though about puddings until now, my curiosity got the better of me. I would have usually used Cocoa Powder with this but as I never had any I used one of my Actidiet Powders (I am currently doing a 7 Day Shred and Cleanse for my friends business, check it outĀ http://www.actidiet.co.uk/me/julie-pringle/).
