As we have enjoyed quite few warm and humid days in these final few weeks of summer, plus I haven’t made chia pudding in a while, I made this fruity and refreshing Strawberry-Lime Sorbet Chia Pudding for my breakfast earlier in the week.
It’s really very simple, super-energising and made a delicious alternative to my usual protein smoothie 🙂
Chia seeds are loaded with minerals and essential omega-3 fats, which are awesome for building smooth and soft skin, as well fibre for a healthy digestive system. Increasing your dietary fibre intake can help to maintain a flatter stomach, and a serving of this chia pudding contains a whopping 18.4g of fibre!
Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, which helps to produce the collagen that keeps your skin firm and plump, and antioxidants to protect your skin and body from everyday pollutants and wear and tear.
It’s quick to make and can pass as a tasty dessert or snack too! Enjoy 😉
