Acai Coconut Pudding

Acai Coconut Pudding

Chia pudding has become popular for a reason.  After flaxseed, chia seeds have the highest content of omega-3 fatty acids in the plant based world.  Just one 30g serving is considered high in protein, fibre, manganese, phosphorus and a source of calcium and magnesium.
If you love stacking up your nutritional hit in one meal then adding acai makes this a ‘super’ pudding!  Acai has an impressive antioxidant status due to its polyphenols – you only need to look at its deep purple tones to know its got some serious plant power.  It boasts about 20 times the anthocyanins of red wine and has an ORAC rating of 102,700 μ mol TE/100g (oxygen radical absorbance capacity).
There is nothing more appealing to a plant based foodie than making a super quick, nutrient rich pudding that you can reach for time and time again.  As long as you can plan ahead to soak your chia, this is one of the easiest comfort foods you can try on your plant based journey.
