Strawberry Coconut Chia Pudding

Print

I am slightly (a lot) addicted to chia seed puddings. This strawberry and coconut pudding is low-FODMAP and my all-time favourite, followed closely by a chocolate pudding. I like it best because it’s filling and flavourful without being too rich for a morning meal. It gives a sustained energy boost that easily lasts until lunch time.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

When I think of pudding, I think of rich, sugary, Bill Cosby-approved cups; full of flavor but lacking in anything “good for you”. Nataliya took a classic childhood favorite and made it not only delicious, but packed it full of nutrients. Chia seeds provide fiber and good fat that digest slowly, so not only do you not get the blood sugar spike you do with most desserts, you also stay fuller longer. That means this tasty treat doubles as an afternoon snack, or even an on-the-go breakfast. Because it is gluten-free and low-FODMAP, it is suitable for people with a variety of digestive troubles, making it a great potluck dish or post-soccer game snack!

    This is suppose to be a sugar detox program. I have noticed your receipes include such items as stevia and maple syrup. Could you please explain to me “why”?

      Hi Donna: Thanks for the question. The recipes on our 7 day sugar detox meal plan do not contain any added sugar such as maple syrup. However, we also have many recipes on Further Food that do contain other forms of natural sugars. Have you signed up for our next sugar detox that starts October 1? You will get the meal plan and recipes that do not contain any sugar. You can sign up by entering your email here. https://www.furtherfood.com/join-free-sugar-detox-challenge/
