Chia Pudding with Wild Blueberries Ingredients
Wild blueberries are a tasty superfood that for centuries has been a part of the native North American diet. These small wild blueberries are almost always found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. I love wild blueberries and almost always have some in my freezer. They are of course the main ingredient in this chia pudding with blueberries.
“When you break open a wild blueberry or eat it you’ll get stains on your fingers. Those stains are pigments which are the health-protective compounds which help with … cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes … memory [and] many forms of cancer.” ~ Mary Ann Lila, the director of the Plants for Human Health Institute, told TODAY.
These tiny chia seeds have soared to becoming one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. It certainly isn’t a surprise that chia means “strength” in the Mayan language and they are strengthening as you will see from their many health benefits. Chia is pronounced chee-ah.
They are very easy to digest when prepared well and are a very multipurpose ingredient that works well in a variety of different recipes. In this chia pudding with blueberries recipe they add texture to the pudding.
You can find them in the health food section of grocery stores or you can order in bulk online. This is a very good brand: Viva Naturals Organic Non-GMO Chia Seeds
Unsweetened almond or coconut milk
It is so good to be able to make a dairy-free chia pudding with blueberries. Millions of people are using packaged Almond Milk because they believe it is a ‘healthy milk alternative.’ I make my own almond milk which is easy to do as well as affordable and way better for the environment. You can easily learn how to make almond milk from scratch at home and use all-natural healthy ingredients, no sugar, and only Organic Unpasteurized Almonds
The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The ‘sweet leaf’ is a stevia healthy sweetener, does not create an insulin response and actually nourishes the pancreas which helps regulate blood sugar. As I don’t use sugar for my baking or cooking I often use stevia which is a healthy option. The best stevia is the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed.
