I’m excited to share a recipe with you based on one of my most favorite power foods, the mighty chia seed. These tiny seeds are packed with antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, Omega 3 healthy fats and protein to boost the immune system.

Chia sees were prized by the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, and it was used as a ritualistic offering to their gods, as well as for medicinal purposes.

Today, they are available at most specialty food markets. Have you ever sprouted a chia seed? It’s simple, just stir it into fluid and watch it absorb within about 15 minutes. This property makes the chia seed a perfect go-to healthy detox ingredient and delicious pudding. The fiber and gelatinous substance helps absorb toxins, fights constipation and the fiber will help keep you, ahem, regular.

  • The mighty chia helps remove toxins from the colon to help the process of detoxification
  • The Omega 3 fatty acids strengthen the immune system
  • Chia seeds are anti-inflammatory and reduce pain and inflammation
  • Absorb up to 30 times their weight in moisture for improved hydration

 

Chia Pudding

3 cups unsweetened almond milk

2/3 cup chia seeds

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

2 packets Truvia or Stevia (optional for sweetness)

Switch it up! Add a tablespoon of cacao powder and mint extract instead of cinnamon and vanilla, or add your own mix-ins!

Place all ingredients in a sealable glass container. A mason jar works best so you can give it a good shake to blend all the ingredients. Keep refrigerated and help yourself to a bowl of yummy deliciousness anytime you need a quick energy boost. It keeps fresh for up to a week, if it’s not eaten first!
