Nectarine and Ginger Chia Pudding

I was actually looking for a fresh peach to make this but the shop only had nectarines which still worked out well.   They are like smooth peaches really!  Chia seeds are gluten and grain free but one tablespoon of the little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk.  More Omega 3 than Salmon and more antioxidants than blueberries!  They give you energy and are also great for weight loss as they absorb about 12  times their size in liquid.  So will expand and keep you full as well as being nutritious.  They also keep your blood sugar levels at a sensible level.   They are one of the most versatile superfoods.

The best thing about Chia puddings is that you throw the ingredients in a jar, shake them to mix, leave in the fridge overnight and voila! An easy breakfast.

INGREDIENTS

2 tblspn chia seeds

1 cups almond milk

1/4 cup chopped nectarine

1/2 tspn ground ginger

dash of stevia
