Sugar-Free Chocolate Coconut Chia Pudding.
3 cups organic, unsweetened coconut milk beverage
1/4 cup natural cocoa powder
14 packets organic stevia/erythritol blend sugar substitute
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup organic chia seeds
4 tablespoons grated 85-percent cocoa chocolate
Add coconut milk beverage and cocoa powder to a medium-size mixing bowl and whisk until combined, about 2 minutes. Add stevia/erythritol blend sugar substitute, vanilla and sea salt to the bowl and whisk until stevia dissolves, about 1 minute. Add chia seeds and whisk until combined and pudding begins to thicken, about 1 minute. (It will continue to thicken as it sits.)
Evenly divide between 4 serving bowls and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight. Serve with one tablespoon of grated chocolate sprinkled over the top. Serves four.

Variations: If you dislike coconut, use almond milk beverage or cashew milk beverage (avoiding any that contain carrageenan gum). For a more dairy-like creaminess substitute one 13.5-ounce can organic coconut milk (I use Trader Joe's brand) for 2 cups of the coconut milk beverage, and make as directed.
Or, top with a tablespoon of chopped pistachio nuts.
