Chia Pudding Recipe

Although Chia seeds are tiny, they pack a nutritional punch being full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

 

All great reasons for adding a few into your life. 

This is a super easy recipe – anybody in your household can make it. It makes a great breakfast , dessert, or snack with the addition of a little fruit, sprinkling of coconut, and a few chopped nuts on top!
