Chia Pudding

Chia puddings make fantastic breakfasts, desserts or snacks.  They are filling, yummy and are a great source of fibre and healthy fats which balance blood sugar and keep you more full for longer.  I use the same base ingredients, but mix it up.  Here I have used 1/2 a grated apple and 1/4 cup strawberries, but there is lots that you can do.

For example, adding 1 tablespoon of raw cacao makes it a chocolate pudding.  You can also use different milks and top it with different fruits such as raspberries and blueberries, or mix in grated apple to change the taste.  You can even mix in protein powers, but you will have to add a little more milk with those.  It can be topped with hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and nut butters.  The possibilities are endless really - just have some fun and go with what you like!

This recipe serves 2, or you could make 2 meals for yourself out of it!
