Now, this breakfast chia pudding is a fantastic way to start your day. Not only does it contain chia seeds but also hempseed, which both are covered in the post Complete Vegan Protein Sources. Add half an avocado and some berries and you’re stacked with a lot of good nutrients and healthy fats. Chia seeds are very high in linolenic acid (LNA) and linoleic acid (LA), which both are essential fatty acids that the body cannot manufacture itself. The only way for the body to get them is through foods.
The pudding takes some time to get to the “gelly” consistency that you want so I really recommend that you prepare the pudding the night before, just before you go to bed and let it sit and rest in the fridge overnight.
At some point, I’m planning on planting chia myself. The leaves from the plant can be dried and used as a tea, and the flowers are a blue-ish purple colour that looks amazing! As I have understood it though, the plant gets quite big and need a lot of space so planting the seeds in a pot might prove difficult, but I will try, and write a post about it.
Start the day out in style! This Chia pudding is filling and full of proteins and fibre. What better way to start the day.
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- 5 tbsp soy milk unsweetened
- 1 pinch cinnamon
Mix all ingredients in a serving cup (or equivalent) and store in the fridge overnight.
Tip! You can add other spices to your breakfast chia pudding, such as cardamom, cacao, vanilla or what else you feel tickle your taste buds.
