Chia Pudding

Posted on February 17th, 2014 by host

If you like strawberry banana smoothies (think Angel Food from Smoothie King), you’ll love this easy 3-ingredient pudding. It’s nondairy, all natural, vegan, clean – and delicious! In addition to supplying two of five recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables, this breakfast dish (or anytime snack) includes chia seeds, known as the “running food” because they slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar (Aztec warriors used to subsist on little else during 24-hour marches.) Chia seeds also provide easily digestible protein, calcium, an alphabet of vitamins, and rich omega-3 fatty acids – a host of benefits that has nutritionists referring to it as the “Ancient Food of the Future.”
