#FoodSimplified – Chia Seed Pudding

#FoodSimplified – Chia Seed Pudding

As many of us know, when life becomes hectic and fast-paced it can be very easy to settle for easy breakfast and snack options. This simplicity often means we skip on nutritional foods, instead resorting to quick-fix bites which are high in sugar, salt and fat. 

If you’re looking to introduce healthier options to your diet then chia seed could be a great new culinary companion. Native to Mexico, “chia” means strength, and these little seeds are plentiful in omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fibre, antioxidants, and calcium. Their versatility means they’re great for sprinkling on cereal, sauces, vegetables, mixing into yoghurt or adding to baked goods.

We’ve opted for a satisfying breakfast dish or snack by adding chia seeds to almond milk. Add some honey, cinnamon and fruit and you’ve got a deliciously healthy snack, packed full of essential nutrients!

Ingredients:

  • 2tbsp chia seeds
  • Almond milk
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon

Method:

  1. Fill a cup with almond milk
  2. Mix in chia seeds
  3. Add honey
  4. Refrigerate for 4 hours
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon
