Breakfast-in-a-Jar Mango Chia Pudding


The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

We have another recipe from the wonderful Nadia Felsch, nutritionist-to-be, whole foods expert and magazine columnist.

This chia pudding is a seasonal favourite that’s the perfect tote-to-work breakfast or after-dinner snack. It’s refined sugar free, with the only sweetness coming from fresh fruit, and is packed with vitamins and fibre. Also, chia seeds contain tryptophan, a precursor of serotonin (aka the chemical that boosts your mood and helps to increase and regulate melatonin, the sleep hormone.)

If you love Nadia’s Mango Chia Puddings as much as we did, you might like to try her Asian Chicken + Mango Salad, or take a look at her other speedy and delicious recipes on her blog.
