This fruit Chia Seed Pudding, which is easy and fun to prepare, cool summer-looking, insanely yummy and healthy, can be a meal to start the day, or keep them in the fridge as dessert. By the way, they are seriously in low calorie.
Chia seed are originally from Mexico and several Central American countries. They are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and calcium. They can absorb 10 times their weight in liquid when soaked. While soaking, there will be a gelatin-like coating being developed, surrounding the seed, and turn anything they’re added to into a magical pudding.
This recipe requires only 6 ingredients: fruit, chia seed, milk, honey, cinnamon powder, peanut butter. And only chia seed is unsubstitutable! You can surely make your own version such like: kiwi + chia seed + soya milk + sugar (or sugar-free) + vanilla/cocao + nuts. All you need is 20 minutes prep time, then put them into fridge to chill for overnight or at least 2 hours.
