In a medium rice bowl, use a fork to lightly beat flax seeds (flax meal) with warm espresso. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch. Then add the remaining 3/4 cup milk and whisk until combined. Stir the boiling milk mixture into the cocoa mixture.
Return mixture to saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick and glossy, about 3 minutes. Remove from fire.
Stir about 1 cup of the hot cocoa mixture into the beaten flax seeds. Add this mixture to the skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until steamed and thickened, about 2 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil. Stir in vanilla. Serve hot.
