Are you looking for a quick, and nutritious snack or breakfast idea?
This chia pudding can be thrown together in less than 5 minutes, left in the fridge overnight and in the morning you can add some fruit, granola, and/or a nut butter then you will be good to go.
There are so many flavour possibilities when it comes to the toppings but my personal favourites are strawberry, mango and peaches!
Extra bonus these tiny seeds are little nutrient powerhouses. 2 tbsp contains 11 grams of fibre! They also contain polyunsaturated fats and these seeds are a source of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc.
Chia seeds are a plant-based source of protein, containing 4g per 2 tbsp serving. They aren’t high in protein but certainly add an extra little boost.
