Low-Carb Berry Chia Pudding

|Low-Carb Berry Chia Pudding

Do you like chia seeds? I love making all sorts of low-carb cereals, porridges and puddings using chia seeds. Here is why you should give them a try:

  • they are very low in net carbs (almost all carbs in chia seeds are fibre). Are you counting total carbs? This post explains whether you should be counting total or net carbs.
  • great source of protein - use just like whey protein in smoothies!
  • great source of omega 3 fatty acids
  • high level of fibre and protein will help you stay sated for longer and you will naturally eat less.
  • very high in micronutrients (calcium , magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, etc.) and low in calories.

Here are even more recipes from my blog with chia seeds.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

The main reason I use two sweeteners in most of my recipes is that a combination of more sweeteners mask the aftertaste / bitterness of some of them. If the pudding is too thick, add 2-4 tbsp of water or almond milk.

Instructions

Mix the chia seeds, coconut milk, water, cinnamon, Erythritol and stevia. If you prefer a smoother texture, use ground chia seeds (note: ground chia seeds may taste bitter). Mix in the berries - you can use fresh or frozen. Let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes, ideally overnight in the fridge. |Low-Carb Berry Chia Pudding Enjoy! |Low-Carb Berry Chia Pudding

Do u have to use erythritol and stevia? Can it just be stevia?

Reply

Yes you can - or you can even skip it if you don't want to use sweeteners Smile

Hi, this recipe really looks awesome!! can I check with you, you mentioned in the ingredients list that I can replace swerve with Stevia. How many drops of liquid Stevie replaces 1 tbsp of swerve?

Reply

Hi Liz, I'd use 3-5 drops of stevia - you may want to use more depending on how sweet you like it to be Smile
