Nutrition Corner: Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are truly amazing and offer many different health benefits, including the promotion of healthy skin, proper digestion and detox, the building of strong bones and increased energy, and the prevention of heart disease and diabetes. Soak your chia seeds (like we do in this recipe) to get the most nutrition out of them!
- 2 cups almond milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pinch fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup chia seeds*
- 1 1/2 cups toasted granola (divided between four servings), leftover from week 1
- ½ banana (per serving), peeled and sliced (2 bananas total)
- 3 fresh strawberries (per serving), stems removed, sliced (12 berries total)
*Recipe Note: If you are not a fan of the texture of soaked whole chia seeds, follow step 1, but add your chia seeds to the blender as well. Transfer this to a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
- Add milk, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, and a dash of sea salt to a blender and blend for 10 seconds. Place chia seeds in a bowl (one that has a lid and is big enough to allow for at least 2 inches of space at the top) and whisk in liquid. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. This will be used Days 2 and 4.
- To serve, scoop 1/4 of the chia pudding into a serving bowl or to-go container and top with toasted granola, banana slices, and strawberry slices.
