Bone Healthy Recipe: Vanilla Chia Pudding

Nutrition / May 2, 2014

Chia seeds are high in dietary fibre, calcium, phosphorous and are the best plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids on the planet! Chia seeds expand when they are placed in liquid and take on a gel-like quality. Some people compare the texture of chia pudding to tapioca. Enjoy this as a breakfast option, snack or even dessert!

I am thrilled that you are not using white sugar in your recipe for white chia pudding! I have made chocolate chia for a decade! Vanilla is a nice change! And better for me! Thank you and I respect Algae Cal so much more now I know you are on my wavelength in nutrition and health!
