Vanilla Chia Pudding. A classic healthy breakfast or dessert idea that you can pair with fresh fruit. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare.
Chia Seed Pudding. You’ve seen it everywhere and it’s so popular for a few good reasons.
First of all, it’s delicious. It has a similar consistency to tapioca. Secondly, chia seeds are full of health benefits; one being fibre. Thirdly, this pudding is so easy to make for next day breakfast.
Just prepare it before you head off to sleep, and you have yourself a delicious pudding for the morning. This pudding is very filling as the seeds absorb large amounts of water and eventually expand in your stomach so it’s really ideal for a morning meal.
There are so many variations for chia pudding and I’ve shared many below if you scroll down but I thought I’d share the most classic of the classics – Vanilla Chia Pudding.
For this recipe
I am using the following ingredients:
3 tbsp of organic chia seeds
1 cup of your desired nut milk
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of good quality maple syrup
As I mentioned, Chia Seeds are a super food when it’s comes to health. I’ve listed some of their benefits below:
Health Benefits of Chia Seeds
1 ounce of chia seeds contains 11 grams of fibre! That’s a lot of fibre.
They are rich in antioxidants, which prevent free-radical production. Free-radicals are responsible for damaging cells, aging and cancer
Chia seeds are loaded with protein. They are a weight-loss friendly type of protein unlike meat
They contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon!
They have shown to reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure
Chia seeds are dense in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and protein. In fact, they contain more bone-building nutrients than dairy!
