I love chia seeds and add them to so many recipes. For such a small seed, they pack a lot of nutritional punch. They contain 18% calcium, 30% manganese, 30% magnesium, and 27% phosphorus per ounce. They also contain zinc, B vitamins(1,2,&3) and potassium. These seeds provide sustainable energy and adding a tablespoon or 2 to a glass of water before a workout will keep you energized and hydrated.
Ingredients
  • ⅔ to ¾ cup chia seeds(depending on how thick you like it)
  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • ¼ -1/2 cup coconut sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp himalayan salt
  • 1 vanilla bean or 2 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender, except the chia seeds, and blend well. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the chia seeds to the mixture and stir well to combine. I keep the bowl out on the counter for about twenty minutes or so and stir every few minutes until the seeds plump up and start absorbing the milk, then put in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. This pudding is so good plain, or you can add fresh fruit such as berries, bananas, persimmon, mangoes, peaches, or whatever fruit is in season.
  3. Enjoy!
