Chia Pudding 4 Ways

Chia Pudding 4 Ways

Chia pudding. It has definitely received its fair share of attention in the health foodie world. Chia is packed with omega 3, fiber, protein, antioxidants and phytochemicals. Superfood status! The high amounts of dietary fibre helps with appetite control, bowel movements, and blood sugar levels, all of which can assist weight loss. Chia is also natures thickener! As a pudding, it is the perfect “healthified” sago pudding replacement. It’s surprising how little ingredients are required to form this glutenous texture, especially with no sugar (see my sugar-free chia jam here). Chia pudding can be dressed up or down in so many ways. Below are three of my favourite flavour options and the fourth is my Mint Choc Chip Chia. Each are great for on-the-go breakfasts, hosting a brunch or even for dessert. You can’t go wrong!
