If you aren’t familiar with chia seeds, they are superfood seeds packed with goodness. They contain tons of soluble and insoluble fiber – great for digestion, and they have more omega 3’s than salmon. They contain many minerals such as iron, potassium, and calcium and are very high in antioxidants. They’re also gluten-free. Chia pudding can be so versatile and you can mix in whatever flavor you like. It’s important to always add a bit of sweetness, whether it be through xylitol, stevia, or maple syrup. For this Coconut and Passion Fruit Chia Pudding by Koko Brill, tropical fruits like coconut and passionfruit are used, along with vanilla powder, for a healthy, filling breakfast.
