Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding
Posted on 01/29/2016 by Kulae
In the spirit of starting the new year off on the right foot, I have been making a serious effort to to get back to my clean eating habits. This week, I share a recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding that meets my clean eating requirements. Not only is this delicious treat gluten, dairy and sugar free, it is packed full of vitamins, due to the nutrient dense chia seeds. On top of providing a hefty dose of fiber, protein, calcium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus, these tiny little seeds also contain a substantially high amount of brain healthy omega 3 fatty acids. The coconut milk in this recipe adds a boost to your immune system, due to the presence of anti-microbial lauric acid and the anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties of the capric acid found in coconut milk. I like to have this as a mid- morning or mid-afternoon snack because it gives me a serious boost of energy. The energy comes from all of the amazing vitamins and nutrients present this simple dish. It is also cleanse, candida and elimination diet friendly. How awesome is that?
