Make Ahead

Do you remember the colourful Pudding you use to eat when you were a child!?

That unhealthy full of sugar treat that now it might even seem a little bit weird to crave?

So here is the new healthy version of it, with Chia seeds!

The Chia seeds expand when in water, and so, with other liquids like milk (or any plant based milk).

Therefore, Chia creates a similar texture to the old unhealthy pudding, but this one is even better!

The main thing about Chia Pudding is that you can mix and match and change the pudding flavours, and the toppings.

You choose your favourite liquid for the pudding base, such as milk from all kinds, or even coffee, chocolate, chai etc…

You can add your preferred sweetener (optional) such as honey/ dates/ stevia etc..

You can add slices of fruits for the actual pudding or as a topping.

Top it up with goodness such as muesli/ granola/ dried fruits/ nuts and so on…

You can play around and choose your own style.

For one big Pudding or two small.

The Ingredients -

For The Base -

4 tbspoons Chia seeds

1 cup of milk (or any plant based milk as you like -

almonds/ soy/ cashew etc.. it can also be a drink such as a chai, matcha latte, coffee, etc)

1/3 up sliced fruits

(as you like)

1 teaspoon of you preferred sweetener (optional)

- such as honey/ agave/ stevia/ dates

Spices and aroma for your taste

(1/2 teaspoon of real vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, or chai spices, of spiced coffee mixture)

*You can also add 1/2 tbspoon of raw cacao if you choose to make a chocolate pudding.

For decoration -

coconut shreds, mix nuts, fresh fruits and dried fruits, muesli/ granola

Special tools needed -

a jar with a lid.

Method -

In a blender, put the chia, milk, sweetener, spices and aroma, and blend until smooth (Recommended).

You can add the fresh fruits to the blender if you would like it to be a part of your pudding, blended.

Unless you can add them whole after transferring the Pudding into a jar.

*You can also pour the seeds into the liquid while stirring constantly to create a firm texture (only if not using any ingredients which need to be blended).

Cover the jar with the lid and put in the fridge overnight

(at least 4 hours. As long as you let it sit, it will become firmer).

In the morning, you can shift the pudding into a bowl, or leave it in the jar if it’s big enough.

Top it up with your favourite toppings.

*The pudding can be saved in the fridge up to 3 days.
