Banana-Coconut Chia Pudding
A little craving for sweet? This Banana-coconut chia pudding recipe reminds me of my dear grandma's desserts ... it tastes like a banana cream pie that satisfies my sweet tooth! This rich, comforting and highly nutritious dish can be enjoyed both for breakfast and for snacking because it is very healthy!
His well-kept secret? The toasted coconut!

 

 

Chia: a superfood!

Considered a superfood, chia seeds have many benefits and are an excellent source of fiber and protein! When ingested, chia seeds gain bulk in the intestine, increasing the feeling of fullness. The high amount of fiber in chia seeds slows down the conversion of carbohydrates to sugar and sugar to fat during digestion. This helps stabilize your blood sugar level, or the level of sugar in the blood, thus avoiding cravings!


Another benefit of chia seeds: one ounce of this healthy food covers 18% of the recommended daily intake of calcium, an essential nutrient for healthy bones.

Chia seeds are real tryptophan balls. It is an amino acid that increases the levels of melatonin and serotonin in our body, two hormones that contribute to restful sleep.

 

The coconut noix

 

Containing iron, magnesium and potassium, this fruit is very rich in dietary fiber, which prevents constipation and brings an ideal feeling of satiety in case of cravings.


High in fiber and low in carbohydrates, coconut can help stabilize your blood sugar level: a 100g serving of coconut meat provides only 15g of carbohydrates, 9g of which is dietary fiber. An ideal food to limit our consumption of carbohydrates!
