Chocolate Banana and Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

This pudding is an omega-3 antioxidant powerhouse. If you haven’t discovered chia seeds yet, you’re missing out.

Here are 7 Reasons You Should Be Eating Chia Seeds:

    1. Help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.
    2. Feel fuller faster: They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
    3. Hydration for athletes: They are also great for athletes because the “chia gel” can hydrate the body.
    4. Reduce your blood pressure: There’s evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure.
    5. Omega-3: They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
    6. Benefits for diabetes: Because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.
    7. They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don’t need to be ground up.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup chia seeds
  2. 2 1/2 cups almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk,)
  3. 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  4. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  5. Pinch salt
  6. 1 banana sliced
  7. 1 handful of blueberries
  8. Sweetener to taste – about a squirt of agave nectar.
Instructions
  1. Mix everything together. Use a whisk or the cocoa is never going to combine with the liquid. Once the mixture seems to be thickening a bit (after a minute or two of mixing), cover and refrigerate.
  2. In an hour or two, you have delicious pudding!
  3. This will last up to a week in your fridge. If it gets too thick, just stir in a splash or two of your almond milk. Enjoy!
