Three days of detox recipes, that’s the theme for this week’s Blogging Marathon.
The idea behind the detox diets is that it flushes out toxins from our body. This is a little controversial as many medical professionals believe that the body can handle the toxin eradication by itself. I am with them for most of the part. But at the same time, good sensible eating never hurt anyone. The way I look at these diets is that they help in taking a break from your regular cooking, reset your palette a little bit towards eating healthier and if you loose some weight in the bargain, then why not?!
I didn’t follow any particular detox diet plan. These are three different recipes that I tried from the internet. I was browsing this page which had a lot of sensible eating detox recipes. That is how I landed in this chia pudding recipe. The best part is that this is overnight recipe, so a little mashing and mixing in the night and breakfast is ready for you in the morning! Read on for the pictorial.

For one serving, mash a banana well. Add two tablespoons of chia seeds to the bowl.
Add about 3/4 cup milk of your choice. Mix well. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 2-3 hours for the seeds to bloom. Soak handful of raisins and some almonds. At the time of serving, drain, dice the nuts and sprinkle it on top of the pudding with a dash of ground cinnamon if desired.
