You can use coconut milk or almond milk for this pudding.  If you would like to make your own Almond Milk.  If you use coconut milk, you may add a little maple syrup if you desire, but it is not necessary at all.

Remember the television commercial- Chi Chi Chia, chia pet in the USA? Chia seeds have so many health benefits, who would believe that these tiny seeds are such a power-house of nourishment.

Chia seeds are white, black or gray staple cereal eaten in native Mexico thousands of years. They contain omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, and fiber. They have a bland flavor and can be added to smoothies, soups, bread, salad dressings and jams whole or ground.

Chia seeds can be very helpful as a part of a weight loss regime when chia seeds are mixed with water or milk the seeds swell in size and becomes gel-like. They are digested slowly, they keep you full for longer and keep your blood sugar stable.

Chia seeds are high in fiber, they act as a broom while passing through the colon, they help to prevent constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and diverticulitis. Chia seeds when grounded and substituted in baked goods for eggs, oil or butter, not only add nutrition but less fat.

    Put this together last night and just finished with the banana and mango this morning. I made it to give to my 17 month old granddaughter for breakfast. She is enjoying it right now. There was a good amount left so I just put it in a bowl. This is sooo YUMMY! The flavor combination of fresh mango and banana is pure perfection! Can’t help but make the “mmmmm” sound after each spoonful. Thank you for this easy and delicious recipe Michelle!

      Maureen, I’m so happy that you and your granddaughter enjoyed it. I’m so tickled. I want to encourage you to make sure she drinks adequate amounts of water since chia seeds are so high in fiber.
