Chia seed pudding is a super wholesome breakfast and really simple to make. Dave has been eating it for breakfast everyday for the last 4 years. It is packed with fibre, omega 3 essential fatty acids and also protein as well as lots of antioxidants. There is a process to making it, we always soak our chia seeds along with some ground flax seed, some cacao nibs, other seeds we might have and soak them in oat milk. The ratio is approximately 1 part chia seeds to 5 part plant milk, mix with a fork and leave to sit while you prep your fruit to top. We usually leave the chia pudding to sit for about 10 minutes and often have to add a little more milk till it reaches a pudding like texture that the fruit sits on top of it without sinking.
You can top your chia pudding with a huge assortment of toppings. We usually pile on the fresh fruit. If you have a sensitive gut then you are better focusing on berries such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, kiwis are also easy on sensitive guts as are oranges and grapes as they are all low in FODMAPS.
