For the dark cherry add-in:

Instructions

Prepare the chia pudding:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the chia pudding to a Vitamix and pulse 5-6 short times, only long enough to mix the ingredients together, but taking care not to over process.  You don't want the chia seeds to be broken down.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and refrigerate for about 15 minutes, or until it firms up.

Prepare the dark cherry chia jam:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the dark cherry chia jam to a Vitamix and pulse or blend until the cherries are broken down, but taking care not to over process.  Set aside. I gave you the ingredient list for a full batch of dark cherry chia jam, but you won't need to use but about 1/4 of it for this recipe.  Just store the extra in an air-tight BPA-free container in the refrigerator.

Prepare the chocolate add-in:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the chocolate add-in to a small saucepan and melt on lowest heat, stirring until it is smooth and well blended, taking care not to let it burn.  Set aside.

Assembly:

If you are making (1) large serving, just layer everything in one large glass or mason jar:

  1. Layers starting at the bottom: 1/2 of the chia pudding --> 3-4 tablespoons dark cherry chia jam --> 1/2 cup dark cherries --> 3-4 tablespoons chocolate add-in --> other 1/2 of the chia pudding --> 3-4 tablespoons dark cherry chia jam --> 1/2 cup dark cherries --> 1-2 tablespoons chocolate drizzle

If you are making (2) smaller servings, just divide the (1) serving ingredient amounts between two serving glasses:

  1. Layers starting at the bottom: 1/4  of the chia pudding --> 2-3 tablespoons dark cherry chia jam --> 1/4 cup dark cherries --> 2-3 tablespoons chocolate add-in --> other 1/4 of the chia pudding --> 2-3 tablespoons dark cherry chia jam --> 1/4 cup dark cherries --> 1 tablespoons chocolate drizzle
