Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients.
Like walnuts and flaxseeds, chia seeds are a good source of plant based omega-3 fats. But the best part... they’re super rich in soluble fibre. Which means they’ll keep your gut bugs nice and happy!
Chia seeds are my go to when I need an extra fibre boost. Just one serve of this chia pudding recipe provides up to 15g of fibre! That’s more than half your daily requirements
They’re also gentle on sensitive tummies, making them ideal for people with IBS
Classic Chia Pudding | serves 2 - 4
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 cups milk of your choice (I used 1 cup cows milk & 1 cup coconut milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp honey (maple or rice malt syrup for low FODMAP)
Serve with fresh berries (strawberries are my favourite)
1. Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl
2. Place bowl in the fridge overnight
