Black Forrest Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding
It seems like everyone is loving this little seed of late. I must confess that I was late to the party, but now I’m definitely a chia seed fan!
It’s not that often a nutritionist will encourage you to eat pudding for breakfast, but chia seeds really exemplify the saying “great things come in small packages”.
Chia is loaded with healthy nutrients such as iron, magnesium and calcium. They’re also rich in Omega-3 fats, protein and fibre. All in all, an awesome choice for breakfast, or a snack throughout the day.
Prepare the night before, for a quick, easy, filling and delicious breakfast.

1/2 cup frozen organic cherries
1-2 teaspoons of raw, organic cacao powder
