What are chia seeds

Chia seeds come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family. Salvia hispanica seed often is sold under its common name “chia” as well as several trademarked names. Its origin is believed to be in Central America where the seed was a staple in the ancient Aztec diet. The seeds of a related plant, Salvia columbariae (golden chia), were used primarily by Native Americans in the southwestern United States.

Chia seeds are powerful seeds and one of the most healthiest foods of all. Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories. They are loaded with antioxidants, full of quality protein, plenty of fiber, magnesium, Omega 3 fatty acids and many more.

Chia seeds contains

  • Antioxidants
  • High quality protein
  • Fiber (10 grams in 2 Tbsp)
  • Omega 3 fatty acids

Chia seeds might help you loose a weight, because all carbs in them are fiber and they contain high quality protein. And the best of all, it’s so simple to prepare. You can add them to your smoothies, porridge, into baking goods or add it to your any daily meal preparations.

How to consume Chia Seeds

Chia seeds can be eaten raw or prepared in a number of dishes. You can sprinkle them ground or whole Chia seeds on cereals, over rice, yogurt or vegetables. Chia seeds are very absorbent and develop a gelatinous texture when soaked in water or milk, that is why I am making these delicious chia puddings.

How to prepare chia pudding? 

Simple ration of 1/4 cup of Chia seeds over 1 cup of liquids. As a liquid you can use any kind, from cow milk to plant based milk. I prefer using coconut milk, because it adds up my favorite coconut flavor. In this recipe i am using almond milk and Organic Vanilla yogurt to make chia pudding even more smooth and creamy. Soy milk, oatmeal milk or any other liquid works perfectly fine as well.

As a sweetener I use maple syrup, but I am not adding too much only 1 Tbsp. If you like it sweeter, then use little bit less of the coconut milk. More liquid you add, then more liquid your pudding will be and vice versa. As a sweetener, you can also use agave syrup, coconut sugar or any other healthy alternative of sugar.
