Low-FODMAP Chocolate-Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding

Low-FODMAP Chocolate-Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding {Vegan, Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I know I'm a bit late to the chia seed pudding party. I've been seeing recipes for it all over the place, so I finally decided to try it. I came up with my own recipe, one that my husband would really like because I knew he would be a bit skeptical. He loves the chocolate-raspberry flavor combination and thought this pudding was very tasty!



The only only comment my husband had was about the texture of the chia seeds, but I reminded him that it was a lot like tapioca pudding and he agreed. Since I came up with this recipe I've been keeping a batch in the fridge to eat over several days. Whenever I have a craving for something chocolate, I dig in for a couple of spoonfuls and am satisfied.

Keep in mind that a low-FODMAP serving size of chia seeds is 2 tablespoons. Larger servings contain high amounts of fructans, which some people with IBS may not be able to tolerate. This recipe serves 2 people.
