CHA-CHA-CHA-CHIA! : CHIA PUDDING RECIPE


CHA-CHA-CHA-CHIA! : CHIA PUDDING RECIPE

If you've never tried chia pudding, you've been missing out. The benefits of chia seeds are endless. They have been known to fight belly fat, add fibre, protein & omega-3's to your diet. 

Chia seeds are tasteless so can be added to anything. Pudding used to be my favourite dessert so I've found a substitution with a healthier dairy option, fresh berries instead of refined sugars & a great breakfast or dessert to keep me full. 

You can try many different versions & variations of chia pudding, from vanilla with cinnamon to chocolate-peanut butter topped with banana. 


INGREDIENTS

2 cup Silk dark chocolate soy beverage (or chocolate almond milk)
3 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp flax seeds
2 tbsp chocolate whey protein powder
2 tbsp frozen blackberries & raspberries
2 tbsp strawberries & blueberries
1 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp fresh shredded coconut


METHOD

In a bowl, add milk, chia seeds, flax seeds & protein powder. Whisk together. 

Pour into a jar & refrigerate overnight. 

Check after 3-4 hours. If it has not thickened to a pudding texture, add another tbsp chia seeds.

Top with berries, coconut or any toppings of your choice & eat right out of the jar. 



Tip: I freeze blackberries & raspberries because they don't last in the fridge.
