How Can Coconut Milk, Chia Seed & Vanilla Bean Pudding Make You Feel Great?
Chia seeds have the unique texture of being both gooey and crunchy at the same time when soaked. Their hydrophilic properties (ability to absorb considerable amounts of water) results in a jelly like substance that holds a chia pudding together. They encourage peristalsis and healthy elimination while satisfying the appetite, meaning you won't over eat on this dessert.
Chia seeds' slightly sweet, relatively neutral taste, makes them a perfect base to add as much or as little flavor as you like, so experiment! This pudding will be too heavy and sweet for Kapha so they should add a little cinnamon and ground ginger to lighten the load on digestion.
