A Raspberry Vanilla Chia pudding is perfect for a romantic yet healthy keto breakfast recipe that is nutrient-dense and loaded with antioxidants, fiber and omega-3s.
Celebrate love with a festive healthy dessert, that is very low in carbs. One serving provides only 2g NET carbohydrates, making it perfect to serve on a keto diet. It’s also dairy-free because I’m using coconut products such as coconut cream and coconut milk.
Make sure to get the unsweetened ones because out on the market most of the foods are loaded with sugar and labelled as healthy.
The sad truth is that sugar comes under at least 61 different names.
I use chia seeds as part of my diet because they give me energy, endurance and have 100% more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. Omega-3s are good for heart health, regulate cholesterol, lower high blood pressure, reduce inflammation and improve many other health conditions.
The key point in a ketogenic diet is to reduce inflammation. Studies show that inflammation is at the root of many diseases.
Craving sweets and chocolate on a ketogenic diet? Add cocoa powder and keto approved sweetener, coconut flakes to the plain chia pudding and you will get a decadent chocolaty low carb dessert or a perfect low carb snack.
PS: You can enjoy a huge dairy-free chocolate chia pudding in my Keto for Accelerated Fat Loss Program that comes with all the tools you need to succeed with the keto diet.
