The proof’s in the pudding

chocolate chia seed puddingIf you’re looking for a healthy breakfast that’s quick and easy to prepare, chia seed puddings are the perfect choice…

And they make great desserts too – especially when chocolate is involved!

Packed with fibre, omegas, potassium and magnesium, the little superfood seeds in them are great for boosting energy, improving endurance and will even help to regulate digestion.

Make the pudding the night before, adding just a few other ingredients, pop it in the fridge to set and by morning it will be ready and waiting for you.

If you’re really pushed for time first thing, you can even put your breakfast in a lidded jar or cup and take it with you for later!!

The variations are endless – check out some of the different recipes here – or why not try the one June made earlier for this week’s Chocolate Moment?
