Chris hates coffee, but he will take a quick shot of espresso in one gulp to get a boost. I think the fancy new coffee machine by parents got me for my birthday is wearing him down, bit by bit. Soon, I’ll have him sipping a whole cup slowly on Saturday mornings with me.

I thought adding chocolate to coffee would help ease him into it. My math skills failed me yet again though: chocolate + anything = great. Nope, he was not a fan of my mocha chia seed pudding.

Coffee haters, this is not for you. Coffee lovers, continue on.

Maybe the hype with chia seeds has dwindled a bit but I still find them to be fantastic additions to my oatmeal, cookies, granola, and as a snack in the form of chia seed pudding.

This version will give you a caffeine and chocolate fix in one sitting!
