ProactivCHIA Recipe: Blueberry Chia Pudding

Prana Biovegan Inc. (an importer and manufacturer of organic nuts, seeds, dried fruits and snacks from Quebec) introduces ProactivCHIA, a new-to-market superfood, combining the traditional goodness of chia seeds with probiotics. Each serving of ProactivCHIA contains 4 billion CFUs of probiotics from 2 live strains (Lactobacillus acidophilus & Lactobacillus helveticus).

Chia seeds have grown in popularity over the years due to the many health and nutritional benefits it provides, mainly being a great source of omega-3, protein, calcium and gut balancing fibre. Prana ProactivCHIA is a versatile way of enhancing health and maintaining healthy gut flora. One tablespoon sprinkled in smoothies, cereal, yogurt, salads, dressings, and juices enhance not only the nutritional profile, but also the texture of the food a well. Chia is also great for binding and thickening foods naturally.

A friend of mine made chia pudding before and it tasted really good. I received ProactivCHIA to try and made my own recipe:
