I’m a total sucker for foods with great texture. That’s why I love a good chia pudding! I know most people are very polarised and either love or hate these little seeds, but I’m a fan!
Other than the great texture, and the delicious taste you can create (when using this recipe!) chia seeds are also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.
Best made the night before for maximum absorption, this is an awesome grab-and-go breakfast for the busy worker or hurried mum. Who said you can’t have chocolate for breakfast!
