Makes 1 cup of pudding
A friend made this for me once, except she replaced the coconut with dates. DELICIOUS AND EASY TO MAKE!!!!! This is so filling, and chia seeds are a complete source of protein. It’s a perfect, delicious source of protein for kids, with 15 grams of protein per serving (go to oneluckyduck.com, select EAT, then ingredients, and Chia seeds. it lists the nutrition content)
Chia seeds are great for anyone with constipation, as they ease digestion. Good for diabetics as well.
You could also try a vanilla pudding, but the chocolate powder seems to be a major ingredient in this recipe. Oneluckyduck.com suggests mixing chia seeds with cashew butter, but why would you want to mix some exensive, high quality product as chia seeds with cashew butter? It’s gross to me. :/
When Chia Seeds hit liquid they emit this lovely goo which surrounds the seed and really resembles Tapioca pearls. You can read all about the wonderful benefits of Chia Seeds on the Living Foods website: http://www.living-foods.com/articles/chia.html
