A Chia pudding is an excellent breakfast choice or, ‘any-time meal’ for that matter. Chia is the superstar in this blend being packed with omega 3 fatty acids, loads of dietary fibre, an abundance of anti-oxidants and, a high percentage of protein. As if that is not impressive enough, chia is also a fantastic demulcent (heals the digestive track) and adaptogen (carries toxins out of the body) has 5 times more calcium than milk, 7 more times vitamin C than an orange .. aaaaand the list goes on!
This is a basic recipe that can be embellished any way you like.. add a variety of fruits or super foods like cacao, maca or bee pollen. For extra sweetness add maple syrup, raw honey or vanilla. There are so many variations on the humble Chia pudding!
This is one yummo pudding to kick start the day, as an afternoon snack or, for evening dessert.
