Strawberry Chia Pudding contains a whooping 15g dietary fibre per serve!
Strawberry Chia Pudding is a recipe that can be adapted to suit the ingredients you have to hand. Of course, if you don’t have strawberries available, you can use alternative fruits. I always recommend using seasonal options, frozen strawberries or other frozen fruit options such as mixed berries or mango.
Dietary fibre is a key macronutrient that the vast majority of people simply don’t consume enough of and the Strawberry Chia Pudding has got you covered. This recipe has got a whooping 15g of dietary fibre. This is largely coming from the chia seeds and secondly from the strawberries. Dietary fibre forms an essential part of gut health. Not only does it play an important role in keeping our gut healthy and ensuring regular bowel movements, but it also helps to reduce cholesterol.
It’s important to have a variety of plants in the diet to keep a healthy gut microbiome and chia seeds and strawberries form part of a healthy diet.
Chia Seeds – As mentioned above, chia seeds are a fabulous source of fibre and they are also an excellent source of plant-based omega 3 fatty acids and magnesium!
Strawberries – Rich in vitamin C, this Strawberry Chia Pudding recipe contains approximately 70% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C!
