Enjoy this recipe as a thick smoothie or as a pudding. Chia seeds are high in protein, omega 3 fatty acids and fibre. The wonderful trick of chia is its ability to keep you feeling full for longer and it may prevent you from overeating. When you add liquid to chia seeds it forms into a gelatinous substance that takes longer to digest and this gel-forming reaction is due to the soluble fibre content in the chia. They can also be added to any meal to add extra fibre such as salads, muffins, healthy pancakes and many other fabulous recipes.
