chia seed

 

If you are looking for a tasty snack that isn’t overly laden with sugar then this is a great option!

Chia seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids (a type of fat your body doesn’t make and has to be taken in through food), loaded with fiber (about 10 grams in 2 tablespoons) and antioxidants. They’re also high in minerals (calcium, phosphorus and magnesium),which are great for allowing your body to cope with stress and can even help with muscle recovery and sleep!

The best thing is that this little recipe is super easy to make, and will fill you up for ages, without destroying your blood sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Sweeten based on what you like and how much sugar you can handle with either honey or maple syrup. Ideally, use erythritol or stevia since it doesn’t affect your blood sugar. If you’re using fruit, then skip the sugar entirely since you’re adding fruit sugar.
