08 Oct Chia Berry Pudding
The chia seeds provide 11gm fibre, 5gm Omega 3 and 4.4gm protein per serving!
50g Chia seeds
250ml almond milk OR pomegranate juice (unsweetened)
200g strawberries OR raspberries or other berries of your choice
2tsp raw honey or agave syrup
Place the seeds in a bowl and add the milk or pomegranate juice and leave to soak for 1 hour, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t go lumpy! They will swell up and thicken into a jelly like mixture. I like to use the milk version for breakfast and the pomegranate juice version for pudding.
Place the mixture in a blender with half of the berries of your choice and the honey or agave syrup and blend until smooth and creamy. Then stir in the remaining berries (if using strawberries, you might want to halve or quarter them first).
Pour into bowls and serve. Couldn’t be easier!
TIP: If making for breakfast, soak the seeds overnight, adding the fruit and honey in the morning before serving.
