Simple chia and blueberry pudding

I have a thing for these tiny seeds and blueberries, for a number of reasons – to name a few:

Chia seeds: did you know that ‘chia’ is the Mayan word for ‘strength’? They are loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, manganese and magnesium, phosphorus, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids! So you have an energy and nutrient packed gem in your hands!

Blueberries: my favourite berries! Packed with vitamin c and k and considered the king of antioxidant foods, they have so many health benefits you simply need to have them in your daily diet!

So, combined these 2 ingredients, gives you a pretty good start to your day or serves as a really good, low calories high energy snack in between meals.

Ingredients:chia pudding

3 tbsp chia seeds

a handful of frozen or fresh blueberries

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp maple syrup

a few drops vanilla essence

plant based milk of your choice

anything you fancy for topping (granola, coconut flakes, nuts, choco chips etc)

 

How to:

Simply mix all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning add your toppings and enjoy!
