A low carb keto chia seed pudding with vanilla flavor that’s full of healthy fat and fiber. Find out how quick and easy it is to make a simple treat out of these healthy seeds.
Chia seeds have been getting a lot of positive press lately. They are quite the super food and make a perfect addition to the low carb diet because they are all fiber.
These seeds help control blood sugar levels by slowing the conversion of starches to sugar and they are packed with omega-3. The complete protein in chia seeds help raise energy levels and many people find they curb hunger to help lose weight.
And, these nutritious little seeds are perfect for making keto chia seed pudding. Simply mix them with your favorite low carb milk, sweetener, and flavoring.
You can even use chia seeds as a substitute for fat when baking to reduce calories and add fiber. They have no taste so they can be added to food without changing the flavor.
But I use them most for making low carb chia pudding. It’s a treat I enjoy for breakfast or as a snack during the day.
What I like most about the pudding is that it’s simple to prepare and super filling. Plus, I know I’m getting a healthy does of omega-3 fats which helps get the right omega 3 6 9 balance.
The gel can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. It makes a great addition to smoothies and yogurt, but it can also be used when cooking and baking.
My low carb flax bread uses the gel in the recipe. I plan to experiment a little and see how I can use these high fiber seeds in other low carb recipes.
Speaking of eggs, a tablespoon of chia mixed with 2 tablespoons of water is a great egg substitute in baking. This is the basic recipe, but some add a bit more water.
Of course, there’s always a little experimenting involved when trying to do egg free baking. I’ve had a lot of failures over the years and psyllium husks have worked best for me.
I’ve been taking this simple keto chia seed pudding to work. It makes a tasty morning snack.
My coworkers think the low carb pudding is a little strange. And they do start chanting the cha.. cha… cha.. chia jingle.
I still remember those indoor chia gardens and the commercials that used to run constantly when I was a kid. Although I never had one, I always wished I did.
Perhaps I should pick one up for my youngest child just to see how the the indoor garden works out. I’m sure it’s a fun activity to get started on a rainy day.
Adding this easy low carb pudding recipe to your daily routine is sure give you energy as well as give you a healthy dose of omega-3. If you haven’t made this treat yet, what are you waiting for?
