Pomegranate Chia Pudding
Posted on May 09 2017
As it starts to get warmer outside, we find that we crave delicious and nutritious meals that feature fresh ingredients. However, this can often be hard to achieve when trying to balance such a busy schedule, where we naturally lean towards foods that are easy and quick to make.
Our solution to this dilemma? Chia seed pudding!
Recently, chia seeds have been all the rage in the health food world and for good reason. While they may be small, they sure are mighty! Packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, and calcium, it’s a no brainer to start incorporating them into your everyday diet.
Our version is extra special as we infused our purifying, antioxidant rich Steeping Beauty tea into the creamy coconut milk and chia mixture that is the base of this pudding.
To bring out the tropical flavours featured in the tea, we topped it off with tropical coconut shaving and tart pomegranate seeds. The result? A vibrant combination of flavours that provides you with a natural burst of energy to kick start your day!
This pudding is so easy to make, and especially perfect for early mornings when you need your breakfast on the go. The best part is that you can make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight to enjoy the next day. And if you really want to get ahead of the game, we recommend doubling up the recipe and making a big batch of it on Sunday night so you can enjoy it throughout the week.
Your body will thank you for this one, inside and out!
