What’s better than one super food for breakfast? You got it! Many superfoods for breakfast in one beautiful bowl. Several years ago when I first tried Chia I didn’t really like it, I realized later after talking to several Chia enthusiasts that I was not soaking my Chia long enough for it to absorb all the moisture and flavor. If you love tapioca, you will love Chia for sure.
Chia seeds have become a highly sought-after and coveted superfood, and it is no surprise why. The super-seed is extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids (aka the “good fats”). Foods high in omega-3 promote heart & joint health as well as help maintain brain health and memory. Chia has a ton of fiber which helps keep you full longer – especially since, when combined with liquid, they expand and form a gel-like consistency (as seen here in our Golden Milk Chia Pudding!). In addition to the above, chia seeds are an excellent source of phosphorus, protein, iron, calcium & manganese.
This Golden Milk Chia Pudding is a great way to capture all of the above benefits of chia seed, in addition to those of our favorite super-spice turmeric! Enjoy this chia pudding in the morning for a satisfying, and energy-rich breakfast, or as an afternoon snack for a little extra fuel to get you through till dinner. It also keeps well so feel free to make the night before indulging!
