I made this recipe during my last retreat in Nicaragua and it was a big hit! It is very simple to make and extremely nutritious. I find lime refreshing and a great way to start the day. For the retreat I cut papayas in half, scooped out the seeds and filled it with the Key Lime Chia Pudding. Then I topped it off with some banana slices, cacao nibs, and hemp seeds.
Chia Seeds: High in protein, loaded with fiber, full of antioxidants, plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, and have five times as much calcium as milk.
Avocado: Low in sodium and fructose, high in potassium and monounsaturated fats making it good for lowering your risk of heart disease. It is also known to be good for digestive health, shiny hair, healthy muscles, and it reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
Lime: Rich in vitamin C and stimulates the digestive system, eases constipation, and helps promote healing in peptic and oral ulcers, gout, arthritis, nausea, fevers, and infections.
Put it all together and this recipe is the perfect way to start your day. Your body will thank you!
