HUNGER-SOOTHING CHIA PUDDING | By Hubert Cormier
Try this delicious chia pudding for breakfast and it will keep you going all morning with its 23 grams of protein! This is really the optimal breakfast after your morning workout, especially since you can switch up the fruit toppings while maintaining the same base. Simple, but tasty and effective!
If you don’t know the chia seed, this is your chance to discover it. Chia seed is rich in flavonols, known for their antioxidant properties. This little wonder is also rich in protein and fibre, a good source of magnesium and a very good source of calcium. In addition, it expands and sets quickly, so one night in the fridge and presto, your chia pudding is ready to take with you on your busy day as soon as you wake up! If you find it too thick (because you are a meal prep fan and you have doubled or tripled the recipe), simply add a very small amount of milk and stir again. You will then get a nice creamy texture.
