The Good Stuff that’s in Raspberry Chia Pudding
The hemp seeds and chia seeds in this recipe add plant rich protein and anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats. Did you know that you can get 11 grams of protein in just 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds? Hemp seed is also made up of all 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce.
Chia seeds have a mucilaginous property, which is a gel-like consistency when combined with a liquid. This property, combined with the high amount of fibre, is very beneficial in your intestinal tract. The ‘gel’ picks up all kinds of unwanted materials such as toxins, excess cholesterol and estrogen and helps to eliminate them from your body. The chia seeds in this Raspberry Chia Pudding are busy little workers!
Switch it Up!
You can also add any type of berry or fruit that you like in this recipe. We love the colour of this chia pudding made with raspberries because it’s so refreshing. We used organic, unsweetened soy milk for the base. Combining this with the coconut purée make this Raspberry Chia Pudding rich and creamy.
If you’re liking the sound of this healthy breakfast, you should also try out our Nut Butter Overnight Oats, this Super Eggy Tofu Scramble or some Baked Tempeh Bacon Strips!
