Chia Seed Pudding + Health Benefits

We have a chia seed pudding recipe and a few health benefits to share with you today! 

  • Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants!
  • High in protein
  • High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Excellent source of fiber
  • Contain tryptophan, an amino acid which helps regulate appetite and sleep
  • Contain Calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium which are all very important for bone health
  • and the list goes on! 

Okay, now for the recipe. 
  • 1 cup organic milk or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • Vanilla extract and stevia to taste

Mix everything together in a small bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until it becomes a gel-like consistency. 

You can add things like dried or fresh fruit, nuts, spices, pumpkin puree and anything else your heart desires. :)

God Bless!
