Blueberry Kefir & Chia Pudding

Kefir is a fantastic alternative for milk and milk-based products. It's a cultured, creamy product with amazing health attributes. Kefir's tart and refreshing flavour is similar to a drinking-style yogurt, but contains beneficial yeast and friendly 'probiotic' bacteria also found in yogurt. Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the plant Salvia Hispanica, related to the mint plant. 'Chia' is the ancient Mayan word for strength, and the tiny seeds were valued for their energy-boosting properties. So, combining the healthy bacteria in kefir with the power-boosting properties of chia gives you a brilliantly healthy start to your day.
Choose your topping. You can use a number of different toppings, here are just a few examples: coconut flakes, cacao nibs, carob chips, sunflower seeds, honey.
  1. Add blueberries and kefir to a blender and blend until well combined.
  2. In large container mix the blended blueberries with the almond milk and chia seeds.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours. This is important for the chia seeds to absorb moisture and swell. It makes them more digestible.
  4. Add toppings of choice, serve cold and enjoy.
