Chia Seeds are one of the newer super-foods on every healthy person’s lips! And the reason for it is that they are high in protein, fiber (42% of DV in 1 oz) and Omega-3 fatty acids (13% of DV in 1 oz). They can easily be added to smoothies, homemade granola, sprinkled over hot or cold cereal, baked into crackers, and added to salads.

So what better what to consume these wonderful super-seeds than in a simple and easy dessert, and it’s great for children and adults alike!

Vanilla Chia Pudding:
1/2 cup of whole raw chia seeds
2 1/4 cups of coconut cream / coconut milk / almond milk / any other variety of milk you enjoy
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of honey / Grade B Pure Maple Syrup
Spices for additional flavor (cinnamon / cacao / lemon zest)
Fruit and nuts for garnish

In a small bowl or jar, combine the chia seeds, milk of choice, vanilla, salt, and spices; stir and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. After the first 30 minutes, stir it again to make sure there are no clumps. Once you’re ready to eat, stir in the honey and top with your favorite fruit and nuts.
Although, you can eat it even after an hour, it is even better if you let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.

So today is what we like to call the “Snowpocalypse” in Atlanta, as it has been snowing all day on Tuesday with ice overnight. So while staying cuddled and warm, I’ve tried a new smoothie recipe that I wanted to share with you all. It is loaded with carotenoids, antioxidants (beta-carotene), vitamin A, biotin, omega-3 fats, vitamin B1, and vitamin B6.

Carrot Cake Smoothie:
Almond milk
2 Bananas
4 Carrots, 2 large and 2 small
2 tbsp of Flaxseed meal
2 tbsp of Coconut flakes
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Ground ginger
Vanilla extract

Put the bananas, peeled carrots, flaxseed, coconut flakes, spices to take, and splash of almond milk, in a blender and combine it all. Continue adding almond milk until the right consistency and fluid content for your taste. Add a little honey or raw coconut sugar if needed. Top with walnuts and extra coconut. 

The end result is definitely filling and very YUMMY!
