I made this yesterday and wanted to share it with you! A delicious winter chia pudding breakfast bowl, perfect for any weather! It only takes a few minutes to prepare the night before, and then 5 minutes the next morning to put it all together.
This isn’t my first time using chia seeds, I made another delicious overnight chia seed and oatmeal breakfast that I share a little while ago. It’s so simple to make, it gets a bit addictive 😉
Chia seeds are quite amazing, they are an amazing source of proteins, as well as essential fatty acids (omega) that we all need. They are also a safe and natural way to help our bodies clean themselves a little better, since the gooey sticky substance is great at capturing toxins and flushing them out of our body. Genius!
If you’ve never tried chia seeds before, don’t let the strange texture scare you, it’s kind of like rice pudding, and is really good with fruits and other foods.
