Here is another scrumptious version of chia pudding – Lemon Ginger Chia Pudding is a little quicker to prepare than my Vanilla Chia Pudding. In this recipe I’m adding some fresh grated ginger which is a super idea with colds and the flu jumping from person to person.
Ginger has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Adding ginger to foods or drinking ginger tea may be effective in helping to avoid cold and flu or decrease the severity if we get sick.
Try whipping up a batch of Lemon Ginger Chia Pudding on the weekend to have ready in portioned containers for breakfasts and healthy snacks. That’s one less thing to prepare during the week and it checks off the “healthy” box at the same time.
