Missing a Sweet Creamy Treat? Try Chia/Flax Seed Pudding.
When trying to get healthy, it seems like there are no satisfying desserts or breakfast cereals. If you are on Keto, many of them take you out of Ketosis. Getting enough fiber is also an issue. We all want to enjoy something yummy without thinking about is this good for me or not. I, for one, eat nothing healthy or otherwise if I don’t enjoy every bite. I also ask myself if something is good for my brain or bad for my brain. Chia/Flax Chocolate Pudding answers all four in a big way.

A serving this size carries a whopping 10. 6 grams of fiber for the chia seeds and 6.0 grams of fiber for the flaxseeds. Bringing 16.6 grams of fiber. This is more than half of your fiber needs for the day.
Does Chia/Flax Pudding satisfy the craving for sweet creamy desserts or cereals?
When I used only Coconut cream, the mixture became too thick and pasty. When I mixed Almond milk and Coconut cream, the pudding became a perfectly creamy consistency. Using Cacao powder and Stevia would work, but I have not tried that yet because using the Heart Defense from Dr. Gundry is so good and I don’t need to add sweetener. I have also used Vital Blues, which gives it a nice berry flavor and added benefits like probiotics and phytonutrients. If you are a coffee lover, you could add freshly brewed organic coffee to the pudding. Experiment with different flavors to suit your personal palette.
