Caramelised Banana Chia Pudding

May 26, 2017 0 comments chia, pudding, recipe

Chia seeds are very versatile. You can sprinkle them on sweet or savoury dishes or use it for chia pudding!

The nutritional profile is impressive.

One ounce (28 grams) of chia seeds has:

 

Energy: 140 calories
Protein: 4 grams
Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s)
Fiber: 11 grams
Calcium: 18% of the RDA
Manganese: 30% of the RDA
Magnesium: 30% of the RDA
Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA

Chia seeds can offer many health benefits, such as supporting healthy cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure and heart disease risk, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. It is a great source of plant-based omega-3 fats in ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid) form. ALA is an essential fatty acid that our body can’t produce itself so it has to be obtained from our diet.

Chia seeds come in black and white colour. Both colours contain similar amounts of nutrients like omega-3s, protein, and fiber but dark chia seeds contain higher amount of antioxidants.

This chia seed pudding recipe is brought to a new level. Caramelised banana chia seed pudding. I can also call it brûlée chia seed pudding because I burn the top part. Fancy isn’t it?

The process is easy and simple. Mix all ingredients like how you would normally prepare chia seed pudding. The difference is the extra step where you burn the top of the pudding using a torch light or the grill in the oven.
