Wake Up Your Taste Buds With This Brain-Boosting Berry Chia Pudding
We love when breakfast is healthy, yummy, and easy to throw together. Ella Mills Woodward, the founder of Deliciously Ella and the author of the new cookbook Deliciously Ella: The Plant-Based Cookbook, shares her berry chia pudding recipe, which ticks all the boxes and has the potential to change your mornings.
This light and flavorful chia pudding includes blackberries, which support healthy brain functioning, coconut milk, and a pop of citrusy spice from the cardamom (great for digestion). This, paired with the satisfying texture of the nutrient-dense chia seed pearls, a favorite superfood here at mbg, take this breakfast recipe to the next level.
If you're feeling creative, Ella recommends making this pudding into a little parfait by adding some yogurt and granola in layers on top of the chia pudding. Whatever your morning routine may be, we think this will fit seamlessly into it.
