Pomegranate and Chia pudding


Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, they are a great source of iron, magnesium, zinc, calcium and many more vitamins. They’re delicious and good for your body and you can top the chia pudding with any fruit or nuts or seeds you want!

Pomegranates are a good source of fibre as well as vitamins C, K some B vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium and iron.

Two compounds in pomegranates – punicalagins and punicic acid – are responsible for most of the health benefits of pomegranate. Pomegranates also have antioxidant activity three times higher than that of red wine and green tea!
