Chia seeds are incredible tiny little seeds that contain all nine essential amino acids, 3 times more iron than spinach and 5 times more calcium than milk. They’re high in fiber (which aids in weight loss and digestive repair) plus they give you lots of energy. Here’s a delicious and healthy chia recipe you can make for breakfast or a mid day snack.
Banana Chia Seed Pudding
makes 1 serving
1 1/2 Tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 cup water
1/2 Tablespoon natural sweetener such as honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
Combine half of the banana, chia seeds, water, sweetener, vanilla, and cinnamon in your blender or food processor. Process until mixed. Pour the pudding into a bowl and allow to sit for 15-30 minutes. The chia seeds will absorb the water and thicken the pudding. When ready, slice remaining bananas on top of pudding and serve.
