Today, we're jumping right on that chia seed pudding bandwagon!
This blue Majik chia pudding, in particular, is my personal fave. It tastes like a plain vanilla chia pudding, so it goes with any toppings, but it has a little extra nutritional punch using E3 Live's Blue Majik powder. Plus, it's just so magically beautiful to create!
Blue Majik is a proprietary extract of spirulina (a freshwater blue-green algae called Arthrospira Platensis). This vibrant blue powder not only makes deliciously beautiful blue creations but also offers many health benefits.
First off, it's loaded with antioxidants and is an excellent source of protein (making it a great addition to a plant-based diet).
Chia seeds are also a powerhouse of nutrition. They, too, are full of antioxidants and are a great source of protein. They are also an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids and an amazing source of fibre. Plus, they release mucilage that protects the intestines while the seeds help to scrape out any stuck residue, a true colon cleanser! And did you know the ancient Aztecs consumed chia seeds as a dietary staple? Believe it or not, Chia is the Mayan term for "strength."
A true breakfast of champions, you could say.

BLUE MAJIK CHIA PUDDING
- Pour milk into a sealable jar, stir in the chia seeds, Blue Majik, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
- Stir until the Blue Majik Powder is well blended, and the chia seeds begin to release enough mucilage that they begin to distribute evenly. (At first, some will sink to the bottom, and some will stay at the top, after stirring for a minute or two they will be begin spread out evenly.)
- Once all the ingredients are mixed well, seal with a lid and place in the fridge to set for at least four hours.
- Once your chia pudding is set, enjoy as is, or top with your favourite garnishes! Some of my faves are banana slices, shredded coconut, berries, hemp hearts, pumpkin seeds and cashew cream.
