I have a love/hate relationship with the uber trendy chia pudding. And I’ve found that it’s a two-fold situation. One – the texture. Two – being hungry 10 minutes later.

Enter this recipe which addresses both of those matters for me – and hopefully you too!

Made with just the right chia-to-liquid ratio and including one of my all-time favourite fruits, this simple and delicious breakfast option will also see you powered for hours to come.

Fibre is the unsung hero of the nutrition world.

It’s an often overlooked and crucial component to so many functions in the body; including digestive support, toxin removal, blood glucose and cholesterol management. It also helps us to feel fuller for longer which can assist those of us who can’t/don’t want to necessarily eat every 3 hours. Fibre may also support weight loss whereby feeling fuller for longer can help prevent overeating.

So guess what dietary component chia possesses in spades then??! {More on this in the nutrition low-down below}.

Enjoy this chia pudding for breakfast, a snack or even sweet treat. I particularly love the transport-ability of chia pudding and its storage power too! Although not a vegan myself, many of the recipes I create, especially for breakfast will fall under this category. Because plants are amazing and because they store well!

Make this recipe in 10 minutes on a weekend and enjoy for the entire week. A delicious, nourishing breakfast that’s ready to go when you need it the most. If you’re especially time-poor in the AM, you could even refrigerate them in serves and hello healthy made easy! A concept that Wholefood Society Online members know all about.


The Nutrition Low-Down

CHIA

  • Rich source of soluble fibre – supporting regular bowel movements and the “feeding” of good gut bacteria, cholesterol management, toxin removal and balancing our blood sugar
  • High in linoleic acid (omega 3) – anti-inflammatory effect in the body, supporting oxidative stress and our cardiovascular system
  • High in vitamins & minerals – including calcium, magnesium and phosphorus – for bone health, neurotransmitter synthesis, hydration support

MANGO

  • Rich in magnesium and potassium to support neurotransmitter synthesis, muscle contraction and blood pressure management
  • Fibre containing to help balance blood sugar and support digestive health
  • Contains a prebiotic fibre; pectin; to help “feed” good gut bacteria and “crowd out” bad bacteria
  • Source of beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant that supports our immune system and protects against free radicals

Enjoy the delicious, high fibre and antioxidant-rich recipe that I’ve shared here with you – perfect for brekkie or even a sweet snack.
