Hey guys I’m so happy to be presenting this great light chocolate snack that’s actually really healthy! Unlike most recipes out there with lumpy chia seeds we have created a smooth and fluffy Chia Seed Chocolate Mousse.

First off, this is probably one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made. The best part about this dessert? It tastes like a little peace of heaven. Seriously, this is amazingly easy to make and only takes 4 ingredients! That’s it! By blending the chia seeds and sugar first into a powdery consistency it helps to keep away unwanted lumps and creates a creamy and fluffy texture once the Chia Seeds are soaked.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are seeds from a plant which derive from the mint family called Salvia Hispanica. They carry tons of health benefits for our bodies. Packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, calcium and iron. Chia seeds are linked to preventing strokes and heart attacks.

Organic Cane Sugar

This sugar is actually much better for you than brown sugar. Did you know that brown sugar is actually not as healthy as we would think? Brown sugar is just white sugar concentrated with molasses. Cane sugar is much less processed and less refined.

In this Chia Seed Chocolate Mousse the ingredients are light, fresh, and airy, making this a wonderful Vegan dessert. All it takes is just 4 simple ingredients blended together and popped in the refrigerator for about 2 or 3 hours! After that you’ve got yourself a fancy healthy mousse dessert. You can also top this with nuts to add a nice crunch, or maybe some fruit for a fresh sweet burst. I chose to top mine with chopped walnuts and almonds which add a perfect salty touch to this sweet chocolatey dessert.
