Chia pudding is high in fiber and rich in Omega 3s. I also love how simple this recipe is to prepare. You can even double the recipe to meal prep a few extra servings for the week. I would be surprised if you didn’t love this chia pudding made with almond milk if you are a vegan. The flavor profile of this purple yam chia pudding is out of this world delicious.

Purple sweet potato super food powder has a slightly nutty flavor and provides the body with additional potassium, as well as calcium. This ingredient is optional, but adds additional nutrients, and gives a nice deep purple hue to the purple sweet potato chia pudding.

Purple Sweet Potato Health Benefits

This beautiful tuber vegetable is also known as a purple yam in this chia pudding recipe. This particular purple sweet potato is less sweet than a traditional orange sweet potato. It is a fantastic choice for an individual looking to lower their glycemic index spike, because this sweet potato rates lower on that index scale, which makes it perfect for those on a diabetic friendly diet. 

Chia Seed Health Benefits

To start with, one ounce of chia seeds packs a punch fiber in the fiber department. One ounce is equivalent to about 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. In 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, you will provide your body with 11 grams of fiber. If you didn’t know this, fiber helps keep you full. So by increasing your fiber intake, you will feel fuller for longer between meals. So, no more growling stomachs in that morning meeting. That is why this cookie dough overnight oat recipe is perfect for a filling breakfast.

Chia seeds also contain decent amounts of protein, and since this is a seed, this would be an excellent protein option for vegans or vegetarians. The ancient Mayan word for strength is “chia”. Chia seeds definitely live up to that quality. These little seeds pack a huge nutritional punch. They are such an excellent energy-boosting ingredient to add to any dish. Studies have also found that by consuming chia seeds, it can help lower cardiovascular risks by up to 17%. There are also benefits to reduced cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased satiety by adding chia seeds into the diet (1).
