    Rushing out the door in full costume right now, but I saw a post from you, so I just *had* to comment :) :)

    Woah, I need to get in on that chia pudding action!!

    And isn't the cocoa powder amazing? Bitter and sweet at the same time! I am also in love with that vanilla stevia stuff.

    Your hot cocoa sounds delish. Good call on the second cup!

    Happy Halloweeeeeeeenn!

  2. OH OH I can do that pose! no sweat! that didn't cause me to put the cat in mortal danger!

    feels so good on tight calves!

    and THANKS for the month of VEGAN MOFO…and I fully expect you to just keep doing what you do!

    I have been eating so awesome lately and I guess knowing I can have a treat makes it easier and DELICIOUS.

    I made veg tacos tonight and seeds are roasted from pumpkin #1 (Hubs carved one while I was at work…STINKER)

    and YAMS just came out of the oven too!

    Happy Halloween EVE!
    Tomorrow should be fun!

  3. Averie, do you get your chia seeds from the link you posted? I can't find them anywhere! Hope you guys have a great Halloween tomorrow. :)

  4. Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl Reply

    LOVE your answers, Averie!!

    And, wow, that chia seed pudding looks so delicious!!! Your husband and daughter must be in HEAVEN with all your creative treats!!

    And thanks for the mention!!


  5. were you reading my mind? I was TOTALLY craving hot chocolate ALL day today. actually, all week. I have the irish cream stevia.. I will have to take my hand at irish cream hot cocoa.

    you always amaze me.. honestly.. you just keep pulling such AMAZING chocolaty vegan desserts out of the air.. pure brilliance.

  6. We are trick or treating in my mom's neighborhood this Halloween. We go over there to eat/hang out, and then Jacob (and now Hayden, too) can make the rounds with his cousins.

    I could go for the hot cocoa tonight, too, although it will be near 70 degrees. I love anything cocoa. I put cinnamon and cayenne in mine.

  7. I am not a Vegan, but love learning and it gets me closer to eating healthier each day.

    We are going to friends. it is a rainy day in Georgia, not looking so good for the kids. :(

    I will try the dark chocolate cocoa!

  8. I can't blog right now because my laptop has a virus so is in for repairs, and using someone else's. BUT, I finally tried chia- I used 2 tbsp plus 1/2 cup of my me and Goji cereal…soaked the whole thing in 1/2 cu of milk overnight expecting it t go thick and creamy, and NOTHING happened! I ended up cooking it but still no gel-like texture. What kind of seeds do you use? I got a single serve sample pack from Greens +…am on the lookout for them in the UK o experiment more. Your pudding looks delish!

  9. Awesome job with the Vegan Mofo – even if you would have done it anyway, it's still a great accomplishment!!!!

    Happy Halloween!

    (I was kinda surprised you didn't have pets – I would have thought a cat or something)

  10. Abby (Abbys Vegan Eats) Reply

    YAA glad you enjoyed your award I passed along.. no rush.. you're like the award queen.

    Good tip on the hot cocoa… At work a few days ago pple were drinking swiss miss crap and I was like man I want a NON dairy hot chocolate. Good thinking!

    Hope Greens and Jeans contacts you.. that would be fun to meet up!! :)

  11. That Cocoa Chia pudding looks like chocolate tapioca and also looks DELISH! I have some Hershey's Dark cocoa powder in my cupboard just begging to be used… looks like I'm having pudding tonight!

    I'll be home passing out refined sugar to all the neighborhood kids like a good neighbor.

    Have a great Halloween!!

  12. oh Averie, I want to bathe in that hot chocolate! I can't remember the last itme I cuddled up with a big mug of cocoa bliss! thank you for giving me a way to use my nunaturals cocoa extract too — I was running out of ideas! (it's great in oats by the way.. but i'm sure you already knew that!)

    I had some apple cider the other day.. oh dear me! how is it so good?! I am also loving the celestial seasonings holiday teas. They make me smile :)

    have a great holiday with the family, beautiful!

  13. oh! this is an EXTRA chocolately post! love it :) at some point in my life I should buy myself a bag of chia seeds. they just look too good to describe! and what chocolate lover wouldn't want chocolate fudge and hot chocolate first thing in the morning :)

  14. Deb (Smoothie Girl Eats Too) Reply

    I really enjoyed your qs at the end. Scott's your hubs I believe- that's sweet <3

    I'm going to go and make a choc. chia pudd right now. I'm craving something like that and I happen to have choc almond breeze that I need to use!! :-) Thanks!

  15. Lara (Thinspired) Reply

    Happy Halloween to you too!
    I love the one-word info at the end. I am learning a lot about fellow bloggers through that :)
    I could use some forward bends today! Maybe I should get off the computer and go STRETCH!

  16. I just found your blog a week or so ago and I love it! I saw this chia blog late last night and really wanted to wake up to some chocolate pudding. YUM! I added sliced bananas to it and it was delightful. A nice change from avocado chocolate pudding…plus, I have a 5 lb bag of chia seeds so I'm always looking for ideas. Thanks!

  17. OMG…love everything! The hot cocoa yummy…chocolate chia yummy. I love making chia puddings!! So satisfying : ) Hope you have a great Halloween!

  18. You go girl re the Vegan Mofo. I am a naughty MOFO….can Jetlag and work be an excuse for not posting for almost 2 weeks? I think not. Good work sista! xxx

  20. Guiltless is right! Totally gonna remember this one for the next time I need a chocolate fix and am out of choc almond milk. The flavored stevia is such a good idea too.

    The chocolate donut holes were DA' BOMB and I'm totally making them again. In fact, I'm fairly sure I don't ever need to buy a Larabar again, I'm going to start making these in large batches and ready to go for easy peasy snacks on the road.

    Averie Rocks CHA CHA CHA!

  21. I cannot get enough of chocolate, and have been wanting great hot cocoa for days. Thanks for the great post!

  22. I cannot get enough of chocolate, and have been wanting great hot cocoa for days. Thanks for the great post!

  23. i always add unsweetened cocoa to my coffee, (which to me is technically water) guilt free nonetheless.

    and i must get myself into this chia seed pudding action.

  24. I just came across your blog and can I say thank you.
    Just seeing your healthy way of living with a good balance of fitness, food and family really inspired me to continue with my recovery from an ED.

    Love your blog,

  25. Reply

    I know you're not drinking now, but hot chocolate and kahlua is on the agenda for tonight. Festive!

    That chia pudding looks so good. I've only made it once, and it was amazing. I didn't use cocoa, but that sounds so good! I've been looking all over for bulk chia seeds… they're a little less expensive than the pre-packaged kind.

    Love your yoga. Thanks for the tips… I really want to get back into it again. A couple months I was so good, going twice a week… but then I guess I just got frustrated. I wish I could take classes with you!

    Happy Halloween, Averie & co!

  26. Good idea for hot chocolate! Now if I could just get my order from RFW faster I might be able to make it! ; ) The chia pudding looks delightful too!

    Hey, just remember we're your friends! If I was in AZ I'd come visit you! My extended family lives there so that just may be a future event : )

    High five on completing Veganmofo! That is quite an accomplishment.

    My favorite cold weather drink used to be coffee. This will be my first winter without it. 7 months Raw and going strong! I think hot tea will be my crutch to get me through.

    in my book, the creamier/thicker = better :D this post is totally making me hungry

  28. I love hot cocoa…but really tea I adore any time of year, hot or cold. Probably 6 cups a day…yikes – decaf/herbal though! Love ginger, cinnamon, peppermint, whatever – usually with stevia and a little bit of milk – and now I've actually been adding a bit of cocoa to the mix as well :)

    Do you have any Yoga recommendations to do from the Internet for free? I've heard of Yoga to the People, etc…not sure….looking for something to follow at home – probably shorter routines but anywhere between 20 mins to an hour maybe – not boring or too slow but not too advanced either !! Thanks.

  29. This have a great idea of a new way I can use my SweetLeaf Sweetener stevia! I'm going to try to locate the Hershey's dark chocolate powder to make hot cocoa, add SweetLeaf's milk chocolate and peppermint flavor along with some cinnamon ( maybe with some skim milk)! Ha! I am so doing it! Thank you!

  30. i would love to try that pudding! I would LOVE some chia seeds.

  31. I've had chia seeds around for a while now, and can never think of anything to do with them! They're so cool, though – now I finally know what to do! Thanks =)

  32. The pudding looks great–I wonder if I could get hubby to try it…

  33. I made cocoa chia pudding, but didn't let it sit long enough. But, i blended it and it was great!

  34. I want to try this pudding so bad!

  35. That looks delicious. Are the seeds chewy, or do they melt down a little like oats?

  36. seriously want to make this chia pudding, just need to get some chai seeds first!

  37. The chocolate chia fudge looks amazing. I hope to be making it soon and converting others to the wonders of healthy vegan desserts! Going to post on your giveaway now =)

  38. Kris | Reply

    Ok Doll, I have this puddin' on my list of to do's! I need to pick up some chia seeds now :) haha

  39. I have been dying to make this chia pudding since you posted it. Now that you are doing a giveaway hopefully I will win and I can!

  40. Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl Reply

    I'm going to make this soon. I love how it thickened up after being in the fridge. YUM!!! (This is an entry for your chia seed contest.)

  41. Thanks for the Cocoa Chia pudding recipe. It looks great and good for u too!

  42. The pudding looks good, but I'm wondering: does it end up smooth, or are there crunchy/chewy bits from the seeds?

  43. No fair! Now I *really* want to win the chia seeds to try this.

  44. that pudding looks fab, as does that hot cocoa as it's been gettin a little chillier :)

  45. that chia pudding sounds great! i just found your page from veg family (aka green and crunchy) and as i am a vegan who is trying to be high raw (and sometimes succeeds) and who is going to become more active in yoga, i was excited to find your blog!

  46. Elizabeth Jarrard Reply

    freezing chia is such a great idea! wow you have just given me so many new options and ideas for fun raw recipes! i want to head to the kitchen and whole foods right now!!

  47. I started making chocolate chia seed pudding last week then found your site after googling about what it would be like if frozen. You've encouraged me that it's a great idea .. thanks!

    I've since used them to thicken raw blender sauces (from Jo Stepaniak's Saucy Vegetarian) to become sandwich spreads, etc., and made jam with blender chopped frozen cherries & berries. I LOVE this thickening property but I'm out of seeds now and miss experimenting.

    My car was totaled almost 2 weeks ago and the other driver (at fault) was uninsured. :( I have no car to go get more right now. I'd love to be considered for the 3 lbs. and promise to share experimenting I do with them (I will, anyway, once I get more ;) ).

    Either way, thanks for your blog.

  48. So I won a giveaway from Living and Loving in L.A. and won a 5 pound bag of chia seeds. I found this recipe through her page and I have a little bowl of chocolate pudding thickening as I type! I can't wait to try all the chia seed recipes you have. Lord knows I need them since I have such a gigantic supply!

  49. Ch, ch, Chia! Love themmmm :)
