- Put chocolate in a bowl and set aside. Heat milk and maple syrup in a saucepan on low heat. Pour over chocolate. Mix until blended into chocolate milk.
- Place chia seeds in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid, or four small ones about 1/2 cup (125mL) each in size. Pour in chocolate milk, mix, and close jar(s). Refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or up to 24 hours, stirring after 1 hour to make sure mix is even. (The longer the pudding sets, the thicker it will be.)
- Serve topped with bananas and chocolate shavings.
Maître Chocolatier Tip
For perfect chocolate shavings, try using a vegetable peeler.
