Orange Ginger Chia Pudding


Chia Seed Pudding is a great example of this vegan friendly home cooking. It is a simple, fantastic, raw breakfast that will jump start anyone’s morning.  Chia seeds are chalk full of omega-3s & 6s, essential fatty acids, fiber and B-vitamins. They are also very versatile and can be used in puddings, baked goods, oatmeal and smoothies. While they are inherently bland, chia seeds quickly and easily absorb the flavor of whatever they are prepared in.

In this case we fixed a chia breakfast pudding with vanilla, orange and ginger flavors, complimented well by fresh fruit and subtle flax seeds. It’s a delicious, balanced way of starting the day.

Healthy, quick and easy to prepare, you have no excuse not to give it a try.
