Pomegranate Chia Pudding

Chia-pudding-granada-4For all those who have never heard of the “superfood” trend, welcome to a new world! Today’s recipe is a good way to get into this world of healthy, vitamin-rich, gluten-free, lactose-free and non-refined sugars recipes. From the hand of chia seeds I invite you to discover new flavors and to leave aside the remorse for dessert, do you dare to try it?

Chia-pudding-granada-8And another recipe to the list of the blog. With the stress that I have been having these last days at work and the little time that I have had to dedicate to the blog, I still can not believe that have found the time to write the new post of this week. In the end this is like a drug, it is not the first time I do it, going out for the weekend or traveling and using those moments of rest in the hotel to write for the blog … crazy as you think, But I do it with pleasure!

Chia-pudding-granada-9Today’s recipe I also prepared it a little quick last weekend. A whole experiment for me, I had heard a lot about the superfood trend and some of its famous ingredients, but I had never tasted anything. And then I thought that it was time to try something and that it would be quick and easy to do because I did not have much time.

Chia-pudding-granada-16Then I thought about combining the fruit of the month (the pomegranate) that Lidia had chosen in “Nunca es demasiado dulce” for the “dis-fruta” challenge with a chia pudding, since both are on the lists of super foods  for their excellent Nutritional values. And this is the result. To any of you who have never heard about chia seeds before (like me a few months ago), is a seed of a size a little smaller than sesame that comes from a plant that is cultivated in South America. Again, I recommend a visit to google, you can also search by its scientific name: salvia hispanica.

I found it strange … the texture very curious and nice, yes. Something completely new that is pleasant to discover, now the taste as it is, rather boring and a bit bland even. Now, let me put you in the background, the ingredients in the recipe, the almond milk and the pomegranate make don’t fancy me at all, so this time my opinion is not impartial. Although I always make a try at abstraction, I eat everything and try to be objective.

Chia-pudding-granada-14The best will be that you try it yourselves, in any case it is worth only because it is the healthiest indeed. We can not always eat cakes and cupcakes my dears!!
