Blueberry Banana Kefir Chia Seed Pudding

Blueberry Banana Kefir Chia Seed Pudding

I learned a few important things this week:

  1. Chia Seed Pudding is sort of blurry looking in real life which makes getting it to look crisp in pictures a struggle and a half.
  2. Sometimes mid-food-photoshoot one gets hot and removes their boyfriend’s over-sized sweatshirt, only to discover that it matches said food very well and should definitely be in said pictures.
  3. Kefir and chia seeds were meant to be together and create really good puddings.

Since writing a post all about probiotics a little while ago, I’ve been trying to think up new ways to welcome fermented foods into my life. And ohhhh baby I have found a way that I am going to have no trouble welcoming. Having little pots of this bad boy in the fridge ready to be grabbed was such a luxury this week. One that I think I am going to repeat next week. Okay and probably the one after.

This recipe couldn’t get much easier and it makes my little dietitian-in-the-making heart squeal just a bit. We’re talking protein and probiotics from the kefir, omega-3 goodness from the chia seeds and vitamins and minerals up the wazoo from the fruit. Don’t mind if I do.
