Chia Pudding: a quick recipe

The Mexican variety of sage has proven to be an indispensable food:

  1. Seeds almost by 20% consist of the main “building” material - protein. Plus - it is fiber, cleansing the intestines (pectin does it carefully).
  2. It contains calcium (6 times its amount exceeds the level of a trace element in milk, chia is “more efficient” and sesame).
  3. Phytotherapeutists use medicinal seeds in the treatment of depressive and reproductive disorders (zinc contains), anemia (high iron levels).

But there are contraindications: sage - a plant containing phytohormones (pregnant and lactating can not be used), lowers blood pressure and can lead to indigestion. Carefully use it with drug therapy.

During the period of fasting, fasting days, most often they prepare an exotic dessert. White sage seed pudding is significantly different from the usual understanding of this dish - you do not have to bake, roast or fry it. The souffle consistency is achieved by the ability of the seeds to swell and become softer.

Important! If you soak chia in coconut, nut, almond milk, you need to take 3 - 5 tablespoons of seeds per cup of liquid. If kefir, ryazhenka is used, 1 to 3 spoons is enough.

  1. Soaked in the "vegetable" milk seeds for a couple of hours (ideally, if at night). You can sweeten the base (if the milk is not sweet) with sugar, stevia, honey.
  2. Chia pudding with ryazhenka has a more viscous and dense texture. The creamy consistency of fermented milk products has an additional effect on the work of the stomach and intestines.
  3. Before cooking separately, you need to grind (chop, crush) berries - raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, currants, strawberries, mulberries.
  4. You can use chocolate (use its chips), crushed nuts.Tentedness will give the taste of pounded bananas.
  5. All connect - lay out layers. The sequence of layers is arbitrary. Especially effectively the dessert looks in transparent ware - glasses, tall glasses, ice cream bowls.

Chia pudding with coconut milk is the most popular dish among connoisseurs of delicate oriental tastes. Protein blend (protein) can add "masculinity", which is useful for fans of gyms and weightlifting. Pudding without additives is also useful for the figure - in a month you can lose 4-5 kg ​​by replacing dinner with this dish.
