Just tried this Repair and Recover Vegan Chia Pudding recipe from ohsheglows.com.  We didn’t add any sweetener.

We loved it!

Aww chia. So we meet again.

Let’s recap the health benefits of chia:

  • More fibre than bran
  • 3x more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli
  • 3x more iron than spinach
  • Helps with hydration

You can make a ‘power gel’ by just mixing it with water (water to chia ratio of 9:1).

On Sunday, I decided to make a super healthy post-run recovery snack.

Repair and Recover Vegan Chia Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (soy, almond, hemp, rice, etc)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sweetener to taste (agave, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, etc)

Directions: Mix chia, water, and milk together and stir for about 1 minute or two. Next add in the carob or cocoa (optional) and sweetener to taste. Stir for another minute and then pop it into the fridge for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from fridge and stir for another 20-30 seconds. Now enjoy your delicious, energizing, and antioxidant packed chia pudding! You can heat it up in the microwave too. Yields about 3/4 cup.

This is not your average pudding. I’m just going to say that right now. It’s a bit slimy!
