If you like chia seed chocolate pudding, you'll love this heathier lectin free version made with organic basil seeds by Zen Basil. Get the recipe.
We all loved chia see pudding until we were sad to learn from Dr. Gundry that chia seeds have lectins. I know I was missing my chia seed pudding. How about you? Then ZEN BASIL came along to save the day! I’m super excited about this product. I featured Zen Basil seeds along with this double chocolate pudding recipe in the Fall 2020 Foodie Box exclusively for my box subscribers! But now that that ship has sailed, I'm sharing the recipe here on the blog for everyone to enjoy.
Zen Basil is a brand I can get behind. Their organic superfood basil seeds have so many benefits:
* High in Fiber
* Rich in flavonoids
* Polyphenols (especially powerful antioxidants)
* Omega-3 fatty acids
* Omega-6 fatty acids
* Just 1g of hydrated basil seeds has enough antioxidants to absorb up to 15% of free radicals (DPPH)
Double chocolate basil seed pudding. They’re so much better than chia seeds; and unlike chia seeds, Basil seeds are lectin free!
