Chia: a superfood powerhouse
Chia is loaded with nutritional benefits - we're talking plentiful omega 3 fatty acids for brain and nerve health, loads of gut-healthy fiber, and all 9 essential amino acids for a complete protein. They're also a good source of antioxidants and minerals manganese, phosphorus, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium, and calcium. They are a superfood from South America once used by Aztec warriors for sustained energy.
The majority of chia seeds' fiber is insoluble, making it a great food for overall digestive health. Chia seeds are highly absorbent and will turn into a thick gel-like texture when submerged in liquid - exactly what's needed to create a thick and creamy tapioca-like pudding.
This recipe utilizes our Rawmio Toasted Hazelnut Spread - a dreamy combination of lightly toasted hazelnuts, heirloom raw cacao, low glycemic coconut sugar, and creamy sprouted oat milk slowly stone-ground to that perfect signature silky-smooth consistency. We blended it right into a base of oat milk to turn it into rich and slightly sweet chocolate milk with a hint of hazelnut.
