Cool and Creamy

It has been a brutal few weeks of intense heat!  That calls for a keto dessert treat that doesn’t require any heat!  You can make this pudding many different ways, with or without the chocolate flavors.  The basic coconut milk, chia seeds, hemp hearts, honey and vanilla extract will give you a simple yet delicious pudding, even possible for breakfast!  The addition of cacao, cacao nibs and toppings allows your creative juices to flow.  Little ones enjoy that part immensely!
