Yummy Chia Pudding
I like to make a few different kinds and keep them in the fridge. Then I take a few spoonfuls whenever I have a sweet tooth or dessert craving.
Chia seeds have protein, zinc, essential fatty acids and loads of fiber. The protein is great for immune cell building, zinc has been know to help boost the immune system. Essential fatty acids are good for heart health and fiber is great for clearing old cholesterol from the body and keep the GI tract healthy.
You can mix and match and add other things that I haven't mentioned here.
Mason jar or glass container
Alternative milk like hemp, coconut, almond, oat or water
blueberries, raspberries, blackberries
mango, papaya, guava, pineapple
Vanilla or chocolate protein powder, cacao powder
Honey or maple syrup
hemp hearts (great protein)

flax seeds (freshly ground), sunflower seeds
Place 3 tbls of chia seeds in a mason jar
Fill to about 14/-1/2 full with alternative milk or water
Add berries or fruit
Mix and then let sit for 5 mins
Add powder and mix
Top with 2 tbls of nut butter, hemp hearts or nuts
Store in fridge for up to a week
My standard is blueberries, almond butter, hemp heart with vanilla protein powder if I have it in the house
My not-so-guilty pleasure is cacao powder or chocolate protein powder with organic peanut butter and maple syrup.
