Coconut, Chia, Flax & Hemp Pudding

Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day, especially when it rolls into a post surf brunch!  

This recipe evolved recently after I found myself really enjoying chia pudding most mornings and decided to experiment with some other nutritious additions. As well as chia seeds, I have been adding golden flax, hemp seeds and shredded coconut for texture. Between them, chia, flax & hemp seeds provide essential omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids, dietary fibre, antioxidants & flavonoids which can help with reducing inflammation, improving brain function, reducing stroke and heart disease risk, boosting gut health, as well as increasing energy levels and helping manage body fat levels. So much to love about them!

Adding kefir in place of some coconut milk can help facilitate the breakdown of the seeds, releasing more nutrients and reducing the anti-nutrients. Using the base of seeds, coconut milk, coconut & vanilla I then add different flavours & tonics depending on what I’m feeling like at the time. At the moment, it's vanilla, ginger & some of our Vitality Elixir but I also love adding turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper & orange rind for a winter chai sort of blend, or grated pear & cinnamon topped with activated buckwheat.
