I remember when I was breastfeeding how hungry I would get. Somehow, even after a full meal, I would feel like I hadn’t eaten a thing. And whilst some of my friends to go ahead and eat double. When I did, I ended up feeling bloated and low energy (which is not fun with a new born needing constant attention). That is when I turned my attention to a fuel packed dessert and treat to have as a top up to my meals. Something was tasty enough so that I wouldn’t mind eating it everyday. But also something filling. Personally I am not a fan of chia seed pudding. But chia seeds in a smoothie was perfect for me. And since I had already started having a smoothie a day. I wanted something else that was tasty and nutritious that I could incorporate fibre, and nutrient rich chia seeds.
Thats when my husband came up with this all in yoghurt dessert. Whilst the ingredients can be changed to your liking. The principle pretty much stays the same. And the great thing is that it can be eaten both as a dessert, for breakfast or any other meal. I like to make mine pack a nutritional punch by adding chia seeds and goji berries. Superfoods that help keep me fuller for longer, but also taste great.
