Super-FOOD puddings! ( GF )

Chia seeds + your favourite flavour combos = breakfast!!

Chia seeds are one of the newest additions to my shopping list and I have been adding them to my green smoothies all year…perfect breakfast! Start the day as you intend to end it – full of goodness 🙂
The idea of making delicious puddings out of chia seeds has been dancing around my mind for weeks, so I trialed different combinations from blueberry + almond + honey TO raspberry + macadamia + mango and a rather ‘interesting’ Mocha pudding….which is a work in progress! 🙂 And there are lots of amazing recipes out their so you can do a bit of research and find a combo that floats your boat…but for myself I’ve fallen in love with there two recipes, which are packed full of flavor and nutrients! Give them a try, these little puddings are supper simple, quick and easy to make…all you need is a blender and I promise you’ll be impressed by how satisfying these are as a great breakfast alternative. Plus Chia seeds are a good source of protein and omega-3’s!
NB: If your thinking…wow these look yum but come on girls I’m an eggs-for-breakfast kinda person, then why not try your own lovely combinations using ingredients like coconut cream, thick creamy yogurt or even liquors?? To make a super-food desert or snack ❤

Banana, Maple and Walnut OR Strawberry and Kiwi
Give it a lick
…we did!!
Chobani yogurt has taken my heart and stomach by storm, a company founded in 2005 out of the simple belief that ‘people have good taste’….their passion? Making great yogurt, the right way! The Result? A truly beautiful product! Chobani yogurt come in an array of insanely tempting flavours all of really high quality,  good value and made locally! (In Dandenong if you’re in Victoria as I am) Next time you are at the local supermarket, look out for them and if you’re in a far off land (aka not Australia) then please look out for locally made yogurt (cheese, cream, butter and milk ) next time you are at the shops…or better still find out, prepare and make the change!
beep beep time to WAKE UP! Strawberry and kiwi pudding….better that a slap in the face!
