If there are any of you out there, that has a little one that is obsessed with Sophia the First on the Disney Channel, than you would understand the reference of Jiggly Wiggle Pudding (aka Chocolate Chia Pudding)…and yes there is a little bit of a back story to this recipe.
My little girl asked me the other day if she could have some Jiggly Wiggly Pudding, being the savvy mom that I am, I knew that Jiggly Wiggly Pudding is a dessert that they have in the show Sophia the First. I told her I would make some for her a little bit later. As I was brainstorming healthier alternatives to traditional chocolate pudding, I instantly thought of my good friend that I like to refer to as “super mom,” because she really is a super mom. She is the MASTER at getting her kids to eat healthy, I don’t know how she does it, and I am always impressed and inspired by her. Anyways, she had told me about the super easy chocolate chia pudding she had made her boys, so I used her recipe, served it to my little girl – telling her it was Jiggly Wiggly Pudding (just like what Sophia eats), and she ate it, and she liked it! It made me feel like a super mom – at least for a minute…so a special thanks to my beautiful friend.
This recipe is made with two ingredients – yep two…This isn’t the healthiest version of chia pudding out there, but it’s good enough for me, because my kids will eat it…and full disclosure, I don’t like chia pudding – I know the horror! It’s nothing specific against chia pudding, I don’t like any pudding, and never have – it’s a texture thing I guess. Anyways, that means that this recipe is specifically for my kids (although don’t let that stop you from hiding it from your kids to enjoy by yourself), so two ingredients is my kind of recipe!
