Chia seeds are mini powerhouse! The reason they are so beneficial is due to them being rich in fibre, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals, and also contain essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid, mucin, strontium, Vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including sulphur, iron, iodine,  magnesium, manganese, niacin, thiamine, and they are a rich source of anti-oxidants.

These Chia Seed Protein Puddings only take a couple of minutes to prepare and are a great on-the-go breakfast option, or snack for anytime of day that the whole family will enjoy. Check out my basic recipe here and then add your own creative ideas…
