I know, it’s almost too beautiful to eat… But this easy, healthy, and & delicious recipe will become your go-to breakfast for busy mornings!
Raise your hand if your parents let you use food coloring while cooking when you were younger. 🙋♀️ This was always sooo exciting for me, except when I would get carried away and use too many colors, so the final product would turn out brown…not so appetizing…
BUT, when it did turn out right, pink foods were my favorite concoction! So it’s no surprise that this PINK chia seed pudding recipe absolutely blows my mind (and my taste buds)!
What’s even better is that this healthy snack, looking oh-so-beautiful, is packed with anti-aging and weight loss-friendly ingredients that leave your skin (and waistline) feeling very thankful. 🙏
Chia Seed Health Benefits
Chia seeds popularity have gone up MASSIVELY in the wellness world lately, and for good reason! Despite the fact that chia seed sales have skyrocketed over the last decade, these little guys aren’t anything new at all. In fact, back in the day, the Aztecs and Mayans regarded them highly for their sustainable energy and high-in-health benefits.
It took a little time, but modern-day nutritionists and health-conscious people everywhere have finally realized why the Aztecs prized chia seeds so much!
This chia seed pudding recipe makes it easy to pack the powerful health punches of chia seeds, with bonus ingredients for smooth skin and weight loss!
Chia seeds are high in antioxidants, making this chia seed pudding extremely beneficial for your body’s cells. Antioxidants help fight off free-radicals, which can damage your cells, causing signs of premature aging, and in more serious cases, long-term health issues (1).
So, when you learn how to make chia seed pudding, you’re not only fighting the signs of aging, but also packing in some healthy protection for your body. 😊
Tiny but mighty, chia seeds have a ton of nutrients! A one-ounce serving of chia seeds contains fiber, protein, omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium, and vitamin B3 (2), just to name a few.
And not only that, but one ounce of chia seeds contains only 137 calories! So, I guess it’s safe to say that chia seed pudding is deliciously & nutritiously slimming!
3. Fiber & weight loss
28 grams of chia seeds (one ounce), has 12 grams of carbs. The good, no AMAZING news, is that 11 of those grams are fiber! What does this mean? Well, even though fiber is in the carbohydrate family, it does not raise blood sugar and your body doesn’t digest it, completely different from digestible carbs such as sugar.
So, keto dieters rejoice! This chia seed pudding recipe is 100% a low-carb food. 🎉
And because of its high soluble fiber content, chia seeds absorb a TON of water for their weight, take on a jelly-like consistency, and expand in your stomach. This helps you feel fuller and helps you eat fewer calories throughout the day.
