Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free
Chia seeds are a true superfood and that is why you hear all about them today! The beauty of these tiny seeds is they absorb the liquid they come into contact with, swelling and creating a gelatin-like substance.
Here are 6 good reasons to add chia seeds into your diet today:
- Full of heart healthy Omega-3 fats
- Source of plant protein
- 20% is your daily Calcium intake
- Good source of Magnesium, Manganese and Phosphorus
- Super high in fiber
- Full of antioxidants
Making this recipe is reallly easy and only takes a few minutes. Using a basic Vanilla chia seed pudding recipe and topping it with my homemade easy peasy blueberry jam.
Substituting ingredients is easy in this recipe. When it comes to the dairy-free milk, I use Almond, Cashew or Coconut. You can use any you like including rice, hemp and soy if that is your choice. I don’t incorporate too much soy in my diet due to the fact that is a highly GMO food, and I don’t recommend you do it either….but sometimes it fine! The sweetner in the chia pudding can be anything you have on hand, such as maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey, monk fruit sweetner. The reason I chose to use Swerve is because it mixes very well and disolves nicely and keeps this recipe sugar-free.
Layering the chia pudding give it this beautiful presentations that will wow your guests if you are serving it, and all that extra blueberry jam makes it so sweet and tasty! Alternatively you can just top the jam on the chia pudding. Don’t have time to make my easy peasy blueberry jam? Don’t worry, top it with fresh fruit or store bought sugar free jam instead.
I hope you devour this as quickly as we did 🙂
