Chia puddings are a deliciously healthy alternative to the traditional sugary version and this turmeric-infused version doubles up on the added benefits by including piquant spices. Both healthy and nutritious, this pudding is an ideal snack to have when you've hit those mid-afternoon cravings.

The pudding base is made with chia seeds, almond milk, blended dates, tumeric, vanilla and cinnamon that have been soaked overnight. When chia comes into contact with a liquid, it expands and turns into a gel-like substance replicating the texture of traditional pudding. Both turmeric and cinnamon are anti-inflammatory spices that are great for the digestive track. Once the pudding has formed, you can add buckwheat cereal and raspberries for an added fruity taste.

Consumers are amplifying superfood and spice content in their cooking for added health benefits and exotic flavors.
