If you're a dessert for breakfast kind of person (like us), then this chocolate chia and caramel nice cream is a must. Chia seeds are a great addition to your diet as they are one of the highest plant sources of omega 3 fatty acids (essential for brain health, heart health and reducing inflammation). They are also a good plant-based source of protein and an excellent source of fibre! All the more reason to make this delicious treat we say.
