Chia pudding is all the rage and it's no wonder. It is a SUPERFOOD loaded with fibre, protein, anti-oxidants, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It's versatile and sooo good for you. Chia seeds are often soaked ahead of time, which makes the most nutrients available to our bodies to use. After the seeds have been soaked they end up having this amazing "glooby" texture. You know what I'm talking about, right? My kids think it's funny the way the seeds feel in their throats when they swallow. So we call them glooby seeds here at home! If you haven't tried them, you just have to experience it to know!
A great way to enjoy chia seeds is in chia pudding. This chia pudding is so pretty, it's great for breakfast, a snack. and definitely for dessert! Chia pudding is so versatile because the flavour is so mild that you can adapt it to any liquid and toppings of your choice, like this one soaked in almond milk topped with homemade granola, a dollop of Greek yogurt with kiwi and banana slices. I use unsweetened almond milk, it's low fat, low calorie and adds a sweet taste to the chia pudding. This is seriously beautiful and sweet enough to serve as dessert!
