Growing up in India, Sabja (Chia seeds) were a summer staple. Known for their high fibre content, they are not only filling but can hold water upto 10 times their weight so they are great for hydration.
Perfect for a snack before working out and all in all, a summer essential.
You can add Chia seeds to smoothies, juices, yogurt and even lentils! The best way to consume Chia seeds in my opinion is in a summer cooler! Recipe up soon!
However, Chia breakfast pudding is the most popular recipe you’ll see out there in the recipe world.
My recipe below is my humble homage to this ancient powerhouse. Hope you all enjoy it!
1 can of lite coconut milk
2 Tbsp of sugar
2-3 Tbsp Chia seeds
1 Tbsp fine chopped Basil leaves
Bring the coconut milk to a boiling point and add the sugar. Dissolve the sugar completely on low heat and take it off from the stove top.
Add the seeds in the coconut milk mixture and add the basil leaves. Pour in serving dishes and let chill overnight.
Serve with chopped up mangoes, kiwis and pineapples.
