Sweet Potato Coconut Chia Breakfast Pudding

Sweet Potato Coconut Chia Breakfast Pudding
I'll admit this is not the sweetest of 'puddings' but it works well to start the day without a surge in insulin. I find the sweet potato is naturally sweet enough, especially when eaten with some fruit toppings, but there is always the option to add maple syrup or honey to taste. A small bowlful is also great as pre-workout energy fuel.
Feel free to play around with toppings once the base is made. I like it best with a handful of fresh berries, a few dried figs for sweetness combined with fibre, a sprinkle of extra coconut and some raw cacao nibs for extra deliciousness.

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
