CHIA PUDDING (3 WAYS) BY TEATOTOAST
Fasting doesn’t just reward you spiritually, it offers a range of health benefits too if done right, and includes right food choices.
At Suhur, it is most important to get enough filling and energy packed foods for the day ahead. One good tip is to add super foods in your food intake and Chia seed Puddings, come highly recommended.
Chia Seed Puddings are a power packed treats and so simple to make! These are gluten free, vegan and full of nutrition.
I’m sharing a basic Vanilla recipe for this pudding, plus two ways to switch up the flavors, Chocolate and Rose.
Do you know? Chia seeds have 10 grams of fiber per ounce, making them one of the more high-fiber foods you can find. Fiber not only digests more slowly than many other foods and keeps you full longer. Plus, Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, iron, calcium and antioxidants. They are a healthy addition to any diet!
Chia seed pudding will last in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can store your pudding in a sealed airtight container for best results.
