I love chia pudding! It’s my one of my favorite breakfast foods (after bacon, that is!) It’s quick. It’s easy. And there are a million ways to make it. Today I am sharing with you 12 of my favorite ways to eat chia pudding.
Chia seeds are an amazing SUPERFOOD loaded with fiber, protein, and antioxidants. They are also an excellent source of Omega-3 oils. Two tablespoons of Chia contain 7 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and 5 grams of omega-3 . The consumption of chia seeds has been linked to improved heart health, weight loss, increased energy, blood sugar stabilization, anti-inflammatory properties, and much more. (source) These tiny, little seeds can soak up to 10 times their weight in water. Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 18 percent of the daily recommended for calcium, 35 percent for phosphorus, 24 percent for magnesium and about 50 percent for manganese. (source)
When it comes to chia pudding, tastes vary. I like mine a little runnier, and my family likes it thick and gooey. The amount of chia seeds will determine the consistency. The type of milk you use will determine flavor. I often use homemade coconut milk (where to buy BPA and additive free coconut milk). Homemade cashew and hazelnut milks are delicious, too. Go ahead, experiment. Make these recipes your own.
