My new favorite dessert
This pudding is very thick, smooth and delicious. Although it tastes decadent, it uses healthy ingredients. Based on the favorite Australian chocolate bar called Cherry Ripe, a concoction of dark chocolate, cherries and coconut, it is simple to make and makes a wonderful dessert.
This pudding is very thick and can be set in a smooth sided rammekin or glass and unmoulded using a knife to loosen it. The flavor and texture is a little like a chocolate mousse.
Ingredients per serve
One half cup of coconut milk
2 teaspoons of raw cacao powder

Coconut chips to garnish
Blend together the coconut milk, cacao powder and coconut palm sugar until the sugar is dissolved. A stick blender or magic bullet is ideal
Add the milled chia seedsand stir well, then stir in half the cherries.
Pour into a bowl or a rammekin or glass if you wish to unmould it.

Leave the pudding to set in a small plastic container and freeze it, then unmould for a frozen dessert treat.
