We bet you’re thinking ‘will these guys ever NOT talk about chia puddings?’.
The answer is no. WE WILL NOT!
Let us tell you why:
Oh, and they are delicious.
Let’s break it down a little further, shall we?
Chia puddings are really just a fancy name for when you mix the very versatile and nutritious chia seed with water or your milk of choice, and let it set. The chia seeds absorb the water and turn into a jelly like consistency, leaving you with a thick, wobbly, delicious treat. They can also be blended with your choice fruit (mango, strawberries!) or cacao (our personal fave, because endorphins!) before the setting process begins, and then decorated with extra fruit, nuts, cacao nibs, coconut…the list goes on.
What you end up with is something that is nutritious and delicious enough for any meal.
