Chia-PuddingPudding with chia seeds

Required ingredients:

  • 2 spoons of chia seeds;
  • 1 glass of milk (coconut or soy milk);
  • 1 spoon of honey;
  • 1 small banana.


We start by warming the milk, adding the chia seeds and mixing well. After 10-15 minutes the mixture turns from liquid to gel like. We add the honey and banana slices as a decoration. We now have a “supper pudding” – an excellent source of essential minerals (phosphorus, manganese, calcium and zinc), which also contains a high percentage of dietary fibers. Enjoy in this healthy dessert.
