Guava, pomegranate and chia puddings

Chia is from the annual herb family of mint (Salvia) and is action packed with complete protein, which means it has of the nine essential amino acids in proper proportions including other non-essentials.

In fact, chia seeds have so much protein they have an amino acid score of 115% – the complete score is 100% – not too shabby eh?!

So I’ve soaked them and pureed some awesome fresh guava and topped these pretty little puds with fresh pomegranate seeds which are just brimming with vitamin C.

  • Yield: Yields about 8 small ramekins

If you don’t have any guava, just puree some berries, strawberries would be perfect!

2 cups water
6 guava, peeled, pureed and strained; pips discarded
1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons maple syrup



  1. Soak chia seeds in water for about 15 minutes until they swell and become mucilaginous – that means slippery ‘n’ sticky
