    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something. The sprinkles are the best part! Dukkah, sesame seeds, some chopped nuts or herbs, sea salt, ground spices like paprika, coriander, turmeric,

    7 hours ago by brownpapernutrition CHOC BANANA PADDLE POPS, because the sun is showing its beauuuuutiful face and these are proof that I don't just make salad... I make lazy ice creams with a blender and make them look fancy with a couple of pieces of banana One of my lovely buddies once said to me these pops and my healthy snickers bar (recipe on the blog) were the two treats that turned him away from being a refined sugar addict for good. They were simple swaps which created big change for him. Pretty great right? I'll pop the recipe below, time to dig your

Kombucha Chia Pudding

Admission : I’ve never loved chia pudding, I found it weird, texturally, so I dismissed it from my kitchen repertoire…until recently.

One of the gorgeous girls in my team brings it with her everyday to work and pops it in the fridge as her afternoon snack and each time she does I look at it thinking, maybe I should give you another chance my chia? So I did, but I did so with  new twist in our relationship and tuned into my gut loving ingredients  and made it with kombucha. Oh yeah. The booch is making the chia great baby and imma pretty stoked about it.

Chia already has a whole host of nourishing elements but teamed with kombucha (my favourite Remedy Kombucha)gives this chia pudding some serious nutrition bragging rights – check it out:

  • chia are a dense source of minerals including magnesium, potassium and calcium
  • chia are high in antioxidants and heart loving, appetite satiating, skin glowing Omega 3 ALA fats
  • protein are a key element in chia seeds too and they are some of the richest plant based sources of amino acids, the building blocks for protein
  • kombucha delivers a delicious taste but through the fermentation process, adds live cultures which create short chain fatty acids…
  • short chain fatty acids in kombucha and thus in this recipe support your metabolism, digestive/gut health, and can boost immunity too – gosh knows we all need a bit of that over the winter!
  • the combination of chia and kombucha are like the ultimate team players for healthy digestion and wellbeing

Need more reasons? Well I could go on, but let’s take it one chia pudding at a time…

KOMBUCHA CHIA PUDDING

GF : DF : SF : VEGAN

4 tablespoons chia seeds

1 cup (250ml) kombucha (we used Remedy Hibiscus Kiss)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons maple syrup

1-2 tablespoons coconut yoghurt

Whisk together chia, kombucha, vanilla and maple with a fork a medium sized bowl. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, whisk again to ensure even distribution then pop in fridge to set overnight. When ready to serve, top with coconut yoghurt, berries, toasted coconut and nuts if desired. We also added some leftover baked rhubarb which was delicious!
