I am in love with this Strawberry Coconut Chia Seed Pudding. If you’ve never had chia seeds, or don’t know what they are, here’s a little bit of insight for you: “Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and iron, chia seeds are great for weight loss because they act like a sponge, absorbing sugar and stabilizing blood sugar levels, says Kotsopoulos. Because of their high fiber content, the tiny seeds can hold up to twenty times their weight in water, so when they’re mixed with liquid they plump up and absorb excess moisture.” – Fitness Magazine. You can read more about them (and other fantastic things to stock your pantry with) in my Get Healthy in 2014: Kitchen Basics Part I post!
Ever since I posted my Fruit-On-The-Bottom Chia Seed Pudding last summer I’ve been wanting to make new varieties. With Valentine’s day quickly approaching, I was excited to incorporate the strawberries for a festive & healthy holiday treat! These would be just a beautiful addition to your romantic meal for the big day. Not only does this pudding make a great snack, but it could also be a great breakfast or even dessert! Best part about it is that it’s 100% guilt free!
