A healthy dessert? Here you are! As part of the BOOST YOUR HEALTH campaign, I would like to show you a recipe for chia pudding. Most of you know it very well, but can you list any of its health promoting properties?
The are rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, and they have three times more omega-3 acids than salmon. Isn’t that interesting?
Today I would like to highlight the importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids, mainly DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). They support the immune system during infection and inflammation, and strengthen our body. The combination of chia with honey and berries (a source of antioxidants) is a sweet immune bomb that both you and your children will love. It’s a great alternative to brunch, and kids can adjust it to their own taste preferences by choosing their favorite fruit.
I put the chia seeds, milk, and honey in a jar, stirred it well and left for 5 minutes. Then I vigorously shook the jar again, stirred the contents with a spoon and refrigerated it overnight. I decorated the pudding with fruit before serving.
