Chia seeds were celebrated by the Aztecs for their medicinal properties. They help keep you satisfied because they are a great source of protein, linoleic and alpha-linolenic fatty acids and fibre. They also contain phenolic compounds with strong antioxidant properties.

This recipe will show you one way I love to incorporate them! Chia puddings are delicious and simple. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of milk, sweetener and toppings.

Coconut Chia Pudding

This super simple but satisfying treat is great for anyone with a big sweet tooth! Pop it in the fridge before bed to have it ready for the morning rush. Here I used unsweetened almond-coconut milk, but you can use what you have on hand. This recipe works great with soy milk, almond milk or even cashew milk! Top with your favourite combination of fruit, nuts, seeds or more coconut.
