Chia Pudding – Health Benefits

As a little girl, I loved tapioca pudding, but I’m not into the sugar and processed ingredients, so today I am sharing a simple chia pudding recipe.

Chia seeds offer an excellent source of antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids. Chia seeds help reduce inflammation, constipation and LDL “bad cholesterol”. The fiber helps improve HDL cholesterol, digestion, weight regulation and energy.

One ounce of chia seeds has the following:

  • 131 calories
  • Protein – 5.6 grams
  • Fat – 8.4 grams
  • Carbohydrates – 13 grams
  • Fiber – 11 grams
  • Calcium – 18% RDV
  • Phosphorus – 27% RDV
  • B-vitamins – 2.5 mg thiamin, riboflavin and niacin
  • Trace iron, copper, potassium

Recipe makes one serving.

  • 1 ounce chia seeds
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

I don’t like adding sugar, but you could add a bit of maple syrup, molasses or honey. Stir all the ingredients together and let set 1 hour or overnight in the refrigerator. Dress up with a few mint leaves, an edible flower or other spices like cardamom.

Please remember not do combine fruits with other foods to avoid the creation of toxic aama. You can read more about that HERE.
