The Wonders of Chia Seeds and 3 Pudding recipes

Jump To Recipe
Chia seeds have so many amazing qualities I honestly won’t get to the recipe part of this post if I get into any great details! So let’s list them quickly and you can read more about them here.
  1. Flavorless & Versatile: They have no flavor and therefore so versatile and can be aded to just about anything as a whole side or in power form.
  2. Nutrient Dense: High in protein, dietary fibre and omega 3’s as well as minerals such as iron, potassium and magnesium.
  3. Energy Boosting: Provides body with energy and helps to keep you full for a long time thanks to it’s mucilage quality (a natural substance that helps plants retain water)
  4. Egg-Replacer :Due it’s binding capabilities, it woks as an egg replacer in baking when mixed with water, same way you make a flax egg.
I’ve been enjoying chia seed pudding every night for suhoor this Ramadan, and I’m pretty sure it’s why I feel absolutely no hunger while fasting. The seeds are able to retain so much water expanding in the stomach that they take more room than their actual size helping you stay fuller for longer. Also by enjoying chia seeds in pudding form you’ve therefore soaked them; this helps release the enzyme inhibitors ensuring you can digest them more easily and your body can access their nutrients more easily. It’s ideal if the chia seeds are soaked overnight.
Thanks to their flavorless quality, the sky is the limit with the flavor varieties you can create. To start try out one of the recipes below or think of your favorite smoothie recipe and adapt it accordingly. 
I’ve used coconut milk in the recipes below as I love how thick and creamy the pudding gets compared to other non-dairy milks. Feel free to use whichever milk you prefer. You can also switch around the sweetener or use stevia for a completely sugar-free option.
