Healthy, easy, and delicious is always my goal. This is what Healthy Chocolate Flaxseed Pudding is like. Perfectly chocolatey, melts in your mouth with the unique taste of chocolate and fruit you like, So Yummy!

How to choose the best ingredients for Healthy Chocolate Flaxseed Pudding

Yogurt: You use natural yogurt the way you like it. I recommend Greek yogurt in this recipe, but it can also be made with a higher protein content or completely natural. Also, remember that your nutrition values ​​will then differ from those given in the table.

Flaxseed: you can choose between golden and brown linseed. Both versions are invaluable for our bodies. However, some differences can help you choose. Brown flaxseed contains more fiber, antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids, while golden flaxseed contains more protein and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It also has a more delicate taste and consistency.

Cacao powder: use the best you have

Nuts: these may be walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews or peanuts. I use a mixture of such nuts and this is how the parameters in the nutrition table are calculated. You can also adjust the composition of nuts to the needs of your body.

Tips and tricks

  • If you don’t eat milk-based yogurts, you can use vegan versions.
  • You can prepare the pudding a day in advance or make several portions. It can stay in the fridge for up to 3-4 days, it must be kept in a closed container so that it does not dry out and does not lose its taste.
  • Freshly ground flaxseed is best for this recipe, as it is the healthiest.

Sides To Serve Healthy Chocolate Flaxseed Pudding

The healthy version of linseed pudding is very yummy with a mixture of berries and here you can add what you like – raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and even currants. I would add a little more sweetener to the berries because they have a more sour taste.

You can also add crushed favorite cookies before serving to give Healthy Chocolate Flaxseed Pudding a bit of crunch. My Almond Cookies or Spiced Gingerbread Cookies will be perfect.

A more exquisite version will be if you decorate the pudding with whipped cream and fresh fruit. This version is perfect for dessert.

Substitute

In terms of composition and properties, flax seeds are similar to chia seeds. However, I do not recommend them for this pudding because, firstly, they were not ground, and secondly, they give a different, more gelatinous consistency, and they do not go well with yogurt.

To replace linseed, you can do it with psyllium, but the latter has fewer nutritional properties, but more fiber and fewer calories, so if you want to lose weight, this version will be better.

You can also replace yogurt with coconut milk (I recommend skimmed milk) or an almond or coconut drink, preferably unsweetened.
