Chia Pudding 448

By Hiba Giacoletto, Healthwise

This is a basic chia seed pudding recipe that combines the magic of spices and with orange and lemon zest to create a very winter-y taste.

Chia seeds contain 20% protein, 25% dietary fiber and about 35% healthy fats, mostly Omega 3. They are also a good sources of iron, calcium and other vitamins and minerals.

Chia seeds are great for thickening foods due to their jelly like consistency in liquid. This makes them an ideal ingredient in puddings so healthy you can also have them for breakfast, like this one!

This recipe takes only a few minutes to whip up and can be kept in the fridge for several days. I usually have chia pudding as a breakfast or dessert and you can also have it as a snack.

Blend together:

2 Tbsp almond butter + 3 dl water or 3 dl almond or other nut milk

2-3 Medjool dates

¼ tsp cardamom + ½ tsp nutmeg + ¼ tsp cardamon + 1 tsp cinnamon

Then add to the blender:

40g or 1/4 cup chia seeds

zest of 1 organic orange and  1 organic lemon

Pulse very briefly on the lowest setting of your blender – just enough to mix the chia seeds and lemon and orange zest with the other ingredients.

Place in individual cups or one big jar and put in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours. The pudding will take on a more solid, jelly-like consistency when it is ready.
