Am I the only one who gets the jingle to Chia Pets stuck in their head? You know the one. Ch-CH-CH Chia Pet! I’m a singer so I guess my brain easily filters in these phenomenon’s!
I’ve been on this plant-based pudding kick lately. I’ve been making both tofu and chia seed pudding and they’ve been coming out so delicious. I starting to incorporate more plant-based ingredients into my diet. Not 100% but definitely more. I and truly enjoying figuring out creative ways to prepare plant-based meals and desserts. I mean, chia seeds and oatmilk (or any milk) and you get this thick creamy pudding. If that isn’t simple, I don’t know what is.
Chia seeds contain a plethora of vitamins and minerals such as anti-oxidants, fiber, protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. This particular pudding is a little on the sweet side but with enough tart from the berries to balance it out. The blue agave, fruit and dried dates adds a simple yet complex layering of flavor that will make you float on air after the first bite. That’s how I experience it. Have you ever bitten into your favorite food and suddenly get thrown into a fit of ecstacy? Well, that’s how I experince delcious foods. After the first bite had take a step back and soak in the yum factor. Dramatic, I know. But true.
Remember, the sweet ingedients in this pudding are from natural sources. Agave is on the low end of the glycemic index, and with any kind of sweetener, it’s best to consume them in moderation.Print
