Chia seeds are a great superfood. They are rich in omega-3, antioxidants and many minerals. Higher in calcium than milk, and high in fibre.
I wanted to start incorporating these little power seeds into my diet and now have a pudding for breakfast! Who would have thought the phrase breakfast pudding was healthy?! The great thing about this is that it is very filling and will keep you full. Just make sure you drink plenty of water as they are high in fibre and absorb a lot of water.
The desiccated coconut gives this Chia pudding a great texture.
The best thing about Chia puddings is that you throw the ingredients in a jar, shake them to mix, leave in the fridge overnight and voila! An easy breakfast.
