Chia Seed Pudding

Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

100mls water (can use almond or coconut milk)

Tablespoon of chia seeds

Tablespoon of honey

Handful of strawberries

1x Banana

Handful of Blueberries

Instructions

  • Mix water, honey and chia seeds in a bowl – stir well
  • Cover the mixture with cling film and put in fridge for a couple of hours (Usually I put it in the fridge overnight)
  • Stir mixture and add strawberries, banana and blueberries

Really simple recipe and you can change it to suit you by adding different fruits that you enjoy. Sometimes I eat this for breakfast or sometimes as a desert in the evening.

You can also add Tahini or nut butter for extra flavouring. I have also tried it with Lucuma which also adds a really nice flavour.

It is only over the last few months that I have learnt about Chia seeds but I have slowly started to bring them into my diet as Chia seeds have a huge amount of health benefits.
