Preparation Tips

If you want to add more protein to this dish, use Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt. However, if you want more fat, use coconut cream instead. You can also use almond milk instead of coconut milk, but it will change the flavor and affect the creaminess (coconut milk is higher in fat than almond milk). Also, some don’t like the texture of soaked chia. If you’re one of those people. Consider blending the chia in a food processor.

Health Benefits

Chia seeds are one of the best sources of plant omega-3 fatty acids. One serving of this chia breakfast pudding provides approximately 2.500 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, which is well beyond the minimum 300mg requirement for this nutrient. Plant omega-3s help reduce inflammation and your risk of heart attack and stroke. Some of them may be converted to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 important for brain and nervous system health.
