Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

I don’t know about you, but I need my daily dose of caffeine to kick-start my day. I also need a nutritious breakfast to get me through the morning. “What’s the problem?”, I hear you say.

Well, I have two young children running around and they need breakfast too and they need to get ready for kindy, which usually means mornings are quite hectic…

So, I came up with the idea of the Café au Lait chia seed breakfast pudding. It combines my beloved coffee with a filling and energy-packed breakfast option.

It’s also super handy because you prepare it the night before to have it all ready by morning. If you have a lot on your plate (figuratively), but need something delicious on your plate (literally), give this chia seed breakfast pudding a try! *Puns are awesome*

Chia Seed Facts

You probably heard it before – chia seeds rank pretty high amongst the so-called superfoods. And rightly so. Don’t underestimate those tiny seeds. They are one of the most nutritious foods around.

Chia seeds come from an annual plant called Salvia hispanica (from the same plant genus as sage), which is native to parts of Mexico and Guatemala. Their health benefits were already known to the Aztec cultures who supposedly used chia as one of their staple foods.

The seeds contain important nutrients, protein, soluble dietary fibre, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and antioxidants – to name just a few of their nutritional properties. If you would like to learn more about their nutritional value, there are numerous studies out there, evaluating the health-promoting properties and therapeutic applications of chia seeds.

The Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

To get you even more excited about this chia breakfast pudding, here is a short non-exhaustive list of health benefits of eating chia seeds on a regular basis:

    • The high fibre content improves digestive health.
    • Their calcium is important for bone strength.

Oh, and let me tell you – it’s yummy too! Chia seeds are pretty much flavourless on their own, so they will take on the flavour of whatever you are soaking them in. So, in this case, you will end up with delicious milk coffee flavour. What’s not to like??
