Pear and Blackberry Chia Pudding
This is one of my twists on Chia pudding that has become really popular for breakfast. These are very filling and the Chia seeds swell and make you feel fuller for longer. No more mid morning snacking! Whatever you add them to they pack a nutritional punch- they are super rich in protein, gram for gram have the same amount of omega 3 fats as salmon and also bone supporting nutrients like calcium and magnesium.
200ml almond or cashew milk
1 chopped pear
1 tbsp. almond or mixed nut butter
1 tsp honey or maple syrup
1/2 banana ( I often use frozen banana in this, I freeze them in slices when they are about to turn)
Blitz in blender/Nutribullet to a smoothie type consistency.Pour into a glass bowl and add 4 tbsp of chia seeds. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
In the morning it will be more of a solid consistency, as the chia seeds will have absorbed much of the liquid. Serve 3 tbsp of this with a little granola and live yoghut. Delicious!
