This easy to make Chia Coco Recipe is a perfect alternative for your quick breakfast, whether you are on the go, or just simply do not have more time than really those 5 minutes. And do not take me wrong with not tasting as good as the puddings or Breakfast, which needs 1 hour to prepare. 

If you still think, this is not enough for Breakfast, have a look at our Breakfast section, where you might just find the great additions.

Also if you do love this pudding, but would like to experiment with something different, why not try our Rainbow Low Carb Chia Pudding or Keto Dalgona Chia Pudding, which could be perfect also for party gatherings.

Keto Chia Seed Chocolate Pudding is another great idea if you are in love with Chia Seeds.

I always make tiny little cups, decorate them a bit with berries and it is one of the favorite snacks for all of our friends. 

But why Chia Seeds?

The hype has been around already for some time. And I have to say for a great reason. 

Chia seeds are one of the top healthy nutritional seeds, which are perfect to use in our Low Carb or Keeto Lifestyle. The additional advantage is, that in whatever liquid you mixed them into, the seeds transform into the jelly-like structure and make puddings or thicken our dishes without additional starches, which are just really bad.

As per Dr. Axe, some of the Chia Seeds Benefits are: 

  1. They support healthy skin
  2. Promote digestive system
  3. Improve Heart health
  4. Helps in balancing blood sugar
  5. Boosts energy and exercise performance
  6. Helps in building stronger bones
  7. Helps in weight loss and maintaining our weight
  8. Fights cancer growths
  9. Helps with our oral health

 

What do Chia Seeds contain?

  1. They are high in Antioxidants
  2. High in Vitamins and Minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium
  3. Contain Omega 3 – ALA
  4. Are filled with Dietary Fiber and Protein

Are Chia Seeds Keto & Low Carb Friendly?

Although they do contain some carbohydrates, you really need only a tiny amount for one portion. So the answer is definitely yes. 

You can use them in our lifestyle, not only for making quick breakfast pudding, but they can be added as well into the berries for a perfect Low Carb Jam or a marmalade. 

Also, a great option is to add Chia seeds into your drinks or cocktails. For example, you can just add it into flavored water to get the effect of the so popular Buble Tea

Do Chia Seeds Help in Constipation? 

Yes and this is a big YES: 

One of the greatest benefits of Chia seeds is the help in constipation.

All you have to do is to soak few teaspoons of chia seeds in water. The ratio should be approximately 1/3 of a cup chia seeds for 3 full cups of water.

More chia seeds you add, faster the gelly structure will form. 

Some people make this every morning after they wake up. And after they get ready, Chia seeds are prepared as well. 

I have friends, that mix water with Chia seeds in a Mason Jar and keep it in the fridge for the whole week. Then every day, they do take a tablespoon either with their yogurt or just plain. 

And although I have never had problems with constipation, friends who do, really swear by this and they will never ever change this one little habit, which then helps them lead a normal life.

Can Chia Seeds be Frozen?

They actually should be always kept in the refrigerator or frozen to keep them as fresh as possible.

But I have them in my spice cabinet, which is also not a problem. Just to make sure you do use them as quick as possible once opened.

What types of Chia Seeds exist?

Until about a few years ago, I have always thought there are only black Chia seeds. 

Until one day, I have found in the supermarket white once, which I have to purchase immediately and then have done a bit of research to find out that the differences are really marginal. Black chia seeds do contain a bit more protein, while white chia seeds are slightly higher in Omega 3 acids. 

For me personally, I do like to have both of the colors at home, but purely only for the aesthetic side of it. 

Can Chia seeds be Sprouted?

Apparently yes, although I have not tried it, but have been planning to do this one day. So just in case you already have, do let us know of the benefits.

Hi Zuzana, another lovely recipe - thanks! You mentioned “sprouted chia seeds” - I remember as a child that I was given a “chia pet” as a gift. It was a small, hollow clay animal with ridges along it’s back. You put chia seeds in the ridges, then added water to the body and in a little while, the seeds sprouted and the animal had “hair”. Look on Amazon, it’s a fun little project maybe for your daughter (I don’t know how old she is...) since you certainly do have chia seeds in your house! Cheers, Emily

Dear Emily,

I have tried sprouting Chia Seeds last month and I will for sure do it again and again. The perfect idea and thanks a lot for your suggestion. My daughter would love it for sure.
