If you have seen these beautiful pictures of chia seed pudding or parfaits but thought making them is too much of a hassle, we have got you covered! This is actually the easiest thing to make!
Chia seeds are edible seeds that come from the desert plant Salvia Hispanic, a flowering plant in the mint family that grows in Central America and Mexico. The seeds are almost flavourless and are a good source of omega, iron, calcium, fibre, magnesium and antioxidants.
You can sprinkle them on any salad, add them to a smoothie or even make a pudding.
Chia seed pudding is a good breakfast if you are on the run or if you are not much of a morning person. This is a base chia seeds pudding recipe, meaning you can chop and change as you want!
There is no doubt that chia seeds are a great source of protein, fibre, calcium, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acid. But, remember there is no miracle food, so do not have any unrealistic expectations. If you haven’t tried chia seeds before they will be a great addition to a well-balanced diet!
