It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of chia pudding. And I absolutely love this low-carb berry and tahini combo. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s packed with antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, and protein, too! Mixed Berry & Tahini Chia Pudding is suitable for gluten-free, nut-free, and paleo diets.
Tahini is made from sesame seeds. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron. Tahini is easy to digest; a great source of protein and healthy fat; and rich in anticancer, heart-healthy plant lignans as well as methionine, which supports liver detoxification.
Chia seeds have a mild nutty taste and are rich in fibre, minerals, plant protein, antioxidants, and healthy fats. In fact, each 2 tablespoon serving of chia seeds contains approximately 4 grams of protein and 12 grams of carbohydrate, of which 11 grams are actually fibre. I happen to like the texture of chia pudding, but for those of you who aren’t chia fans, this recipe works well blended, too!
