Have you ever tried Chia Pudding? It’s one of my favourites! I have it sometimes for breakfast or as a dessert. There are few variations that I absolutely j’adore, a couple of which can be found in my Vegan Sweet Treats Recipe Book but this one is also delicious.

Chia Seeds are tiny seeds that are packed with nutrients. They are full of protein, fibre, healthy fat.. Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, zinc, magnesium, plus vitamins and high amounts of antioxidants.

The health benefits you get from incorporating Chia seeds into your diet include.. a healthier heart, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, glowing skin, a healthier digestive system because of the fibre content, good bone health and more energy.

When soaked in water or dairy free milk they swell up to form a gel. This is because the seeds absorb the liquid. So a bowl of Chia pudding will keep you full for hours.

The recipe:

  • 5 tbsp chia seeds
  • Cup of almond milk
  • tsp vanilla powder
  • tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coyo coconut yoghurt
  • berries

Method:

  1. Blend the milk, yoghurt, vanilla, maple syrup until smooth.
  2. Add to the Chia seeds, mix up and put in the fridge to set for 30 minutes , stirring occasionally.
  3. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Top with berries
