ACAI BLUEBERRY CHIA SEED MORNING BLISS ღ ღ ღ

Happy Chinese New Year. Though we haven't really celebrated this New Year, many people in Cambodia have Chinese roots and have been partying all weekend.

Normally Kep is such a quiet, sleepy beach town but not this weekend. Beach was packed so we tried to get away from it all and find some peace to relax and unwind.

Together with the hubby and a good friend, we had a relaxing ride through the countryside and picnic at some secret lake.

Though the hubby is not a huge fan of chia seed pudding, I had one just before we left on our Sunday adventure to power-up. He had our usual green morning drink.

ACAI BLUEBERRY CHIA SEED MORNING BLISS


Blueberries are a natural antioxidant-rich (anthocyanins, quercetin, myricetin) superfood. They’re low in calories and incredibly healthy. They are packed with fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C, and manganese.

Acai powder another antioxidant (anthocyanins and polyphenols) super berry said to improve heart health, increase fat burning, boost the immune system, and slow down aging, among other health benefits. Furthermore, the acai fruit may also help you recover faster from training and reduce muscle breakdown. Acai berries contain traces of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids (linoleic acid and oleic acid). You'll also get B-complex vitamins, iron, potassium, copper when adding acai powder to your chia pudding mix.

Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with fiber, protein, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, potassium and b-vitamins, chia seeds are a great food source to nourish body and brain.

Almond milk is low in calories, delicious and good for you. Over the past few years, almond milk surpassed soymilk as the most popular non-animal milk. Almond milk is a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, riboflavin, calcium, and potassium.

INSTRUCTIONS


Add chia seeds, acai powder and almond milk to a container or jar. Mix well and let sit in the fridge to form the pudding. This will take at least one hour. After 10 minutes, stir or shake again as the seeds will sink to the bottom.

FYI: I like this pudding without the addition of a natural sweetener. If, however, you are a bigger sweet tooth than me, add maple syrup to the chia pudding mix.

When the chia seed pudding has set, add to a jar, top with the blended blueberries and your favorite superfoods. I used coconut flakes, mulberries, and goji berries.

Happy New Year Amy! And what a wonderful way to celebrate! Relaxing getaway with chia pudding sounds just perfect, even for me. Altough, not sure I am not sure how far I would get on that scooter, lol. 🌴😍🌴

Haha.. Thanks Lena. when living in Asia you get used to driving a scooter. Cars are too much hassle and you are constantly stuck in traffic or muddy roads.

I don't blame you for wanting to escape the crowds. Looks like you had a fantastic day! For some reason those dried mulberries are calling my name. We still have a good bit of dried berries frozen from last year's haul, but I don't think I've been eating enough of them lately. My body must be calling out for some berry goodness. :)

Haha... I miss berries so much. I have to make do with these dried ones or frozen ones from the capital.... but nothing beats the flavor of fresh berries.
