My last pudding recipe was a chocolate chia pudding. Just like the chocolate pudding this recipe calls for very little ingredients. However it houses a big punch when it comes to nutrients. My super food pudding was made with antioxidant rich blueberries. Mineral and protein dense chia seeds. Creamy cashew milk which boast almost 50% of your daily vitamin E intake. And just a bit of B vitamin rich maple syrup or metabolism booster Yacon syrup just to sweeten the deal! Finally the shinning star in this superfood pudding is actually not the blueberries but another berry called sea buckthorn berries.
Sea Buckthorn Berries
I’ve actually never heard of sea buckthorn berries until last week. I went to my local organic grocery store and found these berries in the frozen fruit section. I became intrigued and began reading the label. The package boasted amazing vitamins and minerals and antioxidant properties and it was harvested locally. The package also stated how sea buckthorn berries have high levels of omega-7. I have never heard of Omega-7…
Omega-7 is a rare type of fatty acid. This is found heavily inside sea buckthorn oil. This fatty acid is great for hair, nails and skin, helping to fight the aging process. Other major benefits include cardiovascular support. Omega-7 helps reduce cholesterol. All in all this is just a few of the benefits of having omega-7 which is found in very limited foods on our earth.
The Superfood Pudding
Now depending on the ripeness of the blueberry your pudding will either be sweet or tart, and sea buckthorn berries are actually very tart in taste so if your good with tart then you don’t need to sweeten the pudding very much because you’ve just won the mother load with tat taste. The blueberry and sea buckthorn are a pretty intense taste together but with so many amazing vitamin and minerals the pros definitely out way the cons!
It is very easy to assemble and you can eat it in less then 15 minutes after making it. Start by blending blueberries and non dairy milk in a blender. You can use frozen or fresh blueberries, Add about 5 tablespoons of chia seeds to a bowl and pour in mixture to your chia seeds, stir in and add I desired amount of maple syrup, set aside for a few minutes minutes. Add in desired amount of fresh or frozen sea Buckthorn berries. And finally serve and enjoy the benefits of this superfood pudding.
