Vanilla Chia Pudding

Today at CRB Tech Reviews I’ll share another vegan dish that could serve as a quick and filling breakfast.

This pudding recipe features nutritious chia seeds. This creamy delicacy is loaded with fibre, anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. It’s a definite better option to a traditional breakfast choice.

Vanilla Chia Pudding

Chia seeds contain more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. These essential fatty acids are good for your heart, regulate blood sugar, and reward you with healthy hair, skin and nails. A cup of Chia seeds also contain 18% of your daily calcium needs, which is thrice that of skimmed milk!

Chia pudding recipes often require soaking the seeds whole, and results in a tapioca-like texture, but it is preferable to blend all together for a more uniform, creamy porridge.

And if you top with a sliced banana for a delicious and filling meal, that’s a perfect blend!

Breakfast is the first thing that we take for the day and so the choice has to be wise. It has to be nutritious and good for your digestion such that you don’t get problems of acidity or flatulence in the latter half of the day.

Here goes the recipe:

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

3 tsps chia seeds
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp maple syrup

Methods:

Mix all the ingredients in a blender, and mix until a uniform texture is attained. Put it in a sealed container and allow chilling overnight.

N.B.

If you want a tapioca-like texture, do it by stirring all of the ingredients together and let it chill overnight. Chia puddings need some practice to get the texture right, so be flexible with the adjustment of the amount of seeds or liquid to get the texture of your desire.

A note on chia seeds:

You can make this porridge with a variety of brands of chia seed, but it is well recommended to stick to organic varieties of best quality!

Trader Joe’s new chia seeds are not labelled as organic, and they tastes bitter. Nativas Naturals is a trusted brand, and Whole Foods also has a 365 brand that you will love. These are only a few mention, you can use a brand of your choice, but let us know your experience with us.

Another words of caution, be sure to check with your physician if you intend to use chia seeds to your diet regularly. If you are on any treatment for regulation of blood sugar or blood pressure; there is good news for you…chia seeds naturally help regulate both, and may help make your medications too efficient, so your physician might consider reducing your dosage.

Enjoy!
