The Ultimate Healthy Breakfast - Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients
  • (Serves 2-4)
  • 60g chia seeds
  • 50ml almond milk
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp maple sirup.

Sometimes you want to have a healthy and light start to the day and chia seed pudding has quickly become our go-to dish.

Chia seeds are one of those health foods that you are probably aware of at this point, but have you really worked out the best way to get this magical little seeds into your body? 

On a recent trip to NYC, I discovered how I could actually use chia seeds. Here is the best idea we've come across so far. It takes a few minutes to throw together but requires a little forward planning as the seeds need time to soak up all the liquid.

You may have noticed this popping up in Dublin cafés like Sprout & Co but now you can make your own!
