Low Carb Chai Chia Pudding

Sugar Free, Low Carb Chai Chia Pudding is a healthy, nutritious dish that takes minutes to prepare. Coconut cream and chia seeds with spices and a hint of vanilla create this delicious dish. While I have called this a pudding, equally it can also be a nutritious breakfast or a filling snack. Chia seeds are very nutritious, loaded with fibre, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and many other nutrients. The fibre in chia seeds will help keep your body moving…literally, which is an added benefit. Research suggests that including chia seeds as part of a healthy diet may actually help improve cardiovascular risk factors, such as lowering your HDL cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure.

Keep this made up in the fridge so it is at hand when you are looking for a something to snack on. You can use any type of chia seed for this recipe. Some chia seeds absorb more moisture than others so you might have to vary the proportion of coconut cream to chia seeds. Give it time to soak in though as it does take a few hours to absorb the liquid and you can always thin it down later.

Variations

I have made the Almond Spice Pudding version of this recipe, which is included in the recipe below, for a low carb dessert option for an Indian night recently. There were a couple of other sugary high carb dessert options for my carb loving friends to eat and I thought they would be eaten over the low carb option. I was very surprised that the Almond Spice pudding was actually a huge hit and was more popular than the other desserts. So there… healthy foods can actually taste great as well. Note that the Almond Spice flavor with currants is higher in carbohydrate because of the currants. You can simply omit the currants to keep it lower in carbs. This is another one of those recipes where the dietary fibre just about negates the carbs….my favorite type of recipe.
