You know how I have discussed food textures before, and I can’t eat foods that are slime? You know, things like bananas*, zucchini, eggplant, chokos, well they are all the slime foods. Well check this out:
Deliciously Ella Chia Seed Pudding – http://deliciouslyella.com/
Have you ever had chia seeds in anything? I have them in my bright purple berry smoothies all the time, they remind me of the seeds you would have in say, raspberry jam, but in a little pocket of goo. As we all know, lots of people are hurrah-ing over their goodness, their omegas, and their ability to reduce inflammation by sweeping through the system with their slime, which is activated once they hit liquid. And oh wow, their slime was abundant in this breakfast!!! This was almond milk, a bunch of chia seeds, cinnamon and honey, left overnight in my fridge to absorb all of the super yum deliciousness that is cinnamon, almond and honey, then topped with berries when I woke up.
Now the flavour this pudding had was AWESOME. It was exactly the right balance of all of the flavours. The berries could have done with more thawing, but I was marvin and I wanted to eat it before I ran off to teach Pilates. Also, I think mine hadn’t set as well as it could, I probably could have drunk it like a thick shake, I did leave some of it in the jar and just checked it before sitting down to write this, it has gotten firmer, so maybe make a couple of jars two days out and you would be set for breakfasts for a few days. Now back to the texture….. It was slime with little seeds in it. Great tasting, but since I’m such a textural eater it might have been a bit too much goo on one big hit. It needed some crunch. So I think next time I have it, I will pair half of it with her Banana and Almond Granola Clusters (doesn’t that just sound so so yum!!!) which I will be making on Friday 🙂
So there you have it 😀 I ate chia seed pudding ha ha ha ha ha
*disclaimer – yes I do sometimes eat banana, but it needs to be very thin slivers of only just ripe bananas, no slime 😀
P.S., Notice how many times I use the word slime. I am not messing around 😀
