This Chocolate Orange Chia Pudding can be whipped together in a pinch and is perfect for breakfast and dessert alike. | Paleo, Vegan, Low FODMAP
You’d think after a year of having the same breakfast every day you might get bored of it, right? NOPE. Between this and our Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding I’ve found myself with a reliable start to every day that’s filled with Omega 3’s and packed with fibre. If you’re a Coeliac like me, you’ll know how important fibre is to your overall happiness.
Another nice thing about this recipe is that it’s PoTS friendly. As someone with PoTS, one of the hardest things I find with food is the preparation. If it wasn’t for Sarah’s input I’m sure my diet would only consist of the most basic things that require minimal effort. SO with that said I’m gonna try and come up with some more varied recipes that can be prepared in minutes with little to no exertion. Sound good?
About This Recipe
So for this one, it really is as easy as it looks. Combine the ingredients, whisk it until mixed, store in the fridge for a few hours for the seeds to activate and then voila! And if you’re really in a rush, you can put all the ingredients in a blender & whizz them until smooth. If you do it that way there’s no waiting around and you can dive straight in. I personally prefer the unblended version’s consistency but it’s a matter of preference more than anything.
Hope you guys like it as much as I do!
