Chia pudding recipe (and why Chia is the new black)

Chia seeds seem to be the new black lately – what’s so great about them?

Studies say that chia seeds contain a number of minerals and vitamins (Omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, antioxidants, minerals, proteins, vitamin B, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc). The ‘they brothers’ spruik that they are a super food aiding in weight loss, but studies into this say that they that they don’t change body mass.

How Chia in your diet can help your health:

  • Boost your energy
  • Assist with the balancing of blood sugars
  • Assist lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure
  • Assist with immune health

This is the recipe that I use:


  • 400mL coconut cream (don’t use milk as  I find it doesn’t set properly)
  • 1/3 (80mL) of honey
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • Fruits of your choice (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)


  1. Mix the coconut cream, honey and seeds, then separate into mason jars and place into the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  2. Top the puddings with your fruits.
