Fresh Blueberries and Chia Seed Pudding

I love chia seeds, but I’ve only tried it in my lemonade or water.  When I first heard about this chia seed pudding, I knew had to try it.  After all, chia seeds are known to be a mini powerhouse packing more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries and more Omega-3 than Salmon.  The chia seed is one of the oldest forms of nutrition in Mexico, Guatemala and other Central American Countries, dating back to ancient Mayan and Aztec diets, where it is a known source of Omega-3, rich in calcium and a good source of dietary fiber.

If you’ve never tried chia, be prepared for their texture can take a little getting used to. People either love it or hate it, not because of it’s taste, but because of its ability to thicken and gel.  In fact, chia seeds don’t taste like anything, which makes it so versatile and are a great protein-packed addition to many recipes.

What is Chia Pudding?

Chia seed pudding is a simple and delicious way to enjoy a superfood breakfast, especially if you’re on-the-go.  It takes minutes to make with only a few ingredients.  Because of its versatility, you can make any flavor you choose, like adding fresh berries, chocolate powder and even PBJ.  The best part of this delicious breakfast is that its low in sugar for those health conscious foodies.  Goya Foods has all the ingredients you need to prepare your favorite Chia Seed Pudding.

How Long Can You Keep Chia Seed Pudding?

This recipe contains all natural ingredients which is why it’s recommended to enjoy within two days after it is made. The best time to eat is the day after making it. I recommend preparing it at night to have it ready the next morning.  Also, add the berries and granola when you’re ready to eat it as well.
