Recently, I received some test products from Foodspring,also a pack of white chia. After I already made black Chia pudding gladly for breakfast, I needed a new recipe for the white Chia so here it is.
Recipe: White Chia pudding with apricot peach mango topping
Ingredients for 1 serving = 1 breakfast
2-3 spoons of white chia (e.g., from foodspring)
125 ml almond milk
1 knife tip of vanilla paste
1 ripe apricots
1 ripe peach
1/4 ripe mango
How to prepare
Pour the seeds of Chia seeds into a marmalade glass or glass container and pour over the almond milk and stir in the vanilla paste. Chia seeds are allowed to swell in the refrigerator (at least 1 h, best overnight). 1-2 stir during swelling.
- Peach, apricots and mango in small cubes and simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes in a pan with a little water. Allow to cool.
- Chia Pudding from the refrigerator and distribute the topping over it. Who still likes coke rasp over it. Enjoy.
Larger quantities can also be cooked and prepared. It is best to keep a container with the chia pudding and one with the topping in the refrigerator. Lasts several days.
About white Chia
It’s no wonder that organic chia seeds are marketed as a “superfood”. Despite their tiny size – chia seeds are smaller than sesame seeds – these nutritional miracles pack a number of essential and important nutrients.
Organic Chia Seeds…
- are a source of high-quality vegetable protein.
- provide you with valuable omega-3 fatty acids.
- are rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
- support muscle building, slimming diets and cleansing diets.
Long-lasting energy boost
The fibre content in the small miracle grain is high in mucilage, which provides the body with a constant supply of energy over an extended period of time. Just one tablespoon of foodspring’s organic white chia seeds covers more than a quarter of your recommended daily intake of fibre.
These miracle seeds also contain large amounts of high-quality proteins. On average, chia seeds contain twice as much protein as other grains like wheat, maize, rice or barley. This strengthens and invigorates the entire body.
High fibre content for digestion and cleansing
Like flax seeds, chia seeds contribute to a healthy digestive system. They are an exceptional source of nutrients. If the seeds are mixed with liquid, they have a gel-like layer which can absorb more than times their weight in water.
With enough liquid, the gel mass expands in the stomach and slows the release of carbohydrates and fats. In this way, chia seeds stimulate intestinal activity and contribute to the effective drainage and cleansing of the body.
Chia seeds as a source of valuable fatty acids
The extremely high omega-3 fatty acid content forms an optimised ratio with omega-6 to improve cholesterol and blood lipid levels. 60% of the omega-3 fatty acids form the lipid profile of our organic white chia seeds, making them one of the richest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acid.
With an extremely high content of antioxidants, the seeds are not only little helpers in the fight against harmful free radicals in the body, they also prevent the oxidation of healthy fats. This contributes to the maintenance and functionality of cells in order to protect against tissue damage and inflammation.
Organic chia seeds as a valuable source of vitamins and minerals
With a remarkably high content of more than 40 mg (per 100g) of the vital vitamins A, B and E and minerals of about 2 g (per 100 g), like potassium, iron, zinc and phosphorus, this power grain provides energy all day long. Combined with omega-3 fatty acids, the liposoluble vitamins A, D, E and K can be absorbed more easily and made available to the body.
