I love making puddings for a healthy snack or dessert. Milk tea pudding, panna cotta, sago…but since I started making this chia pudding. Oh my god, it is so simple to make, delicious and packed with nutrients (protein and fibre, yeah!). It is gluten-free and vegan, of course when you use a non-dairy milk. It is so awesome how these little guys turn into sticky pudding texture. You can absolutely play with flavours here. Fabulous flavours? chocolate, banana, cinnamon, mango, berry, Macha green tea, vanilla, pumpkin, chai.. Toppings? crunchy nuts, dried or fresh fruits, shaved chocolate, coconut chips, honey or maple syrup… what ever you fancy!
Ingredients (For one serving)
250ml coconut milk (you can use almond milk or soy milk too, but coconut has lots of flavour and healthy fats)
20g chia seeds
1 teaspoon of vanilla powder
1 table-spoon of maple syrup
1 cup of mixed berries (frozen or fresh)toppings (goji berries, cacao nibs, buckwheat)
Combine all ingredients in a glass or a jar except topping and refrigerate overnight. Stir occasionally making sure chia seeds are not all stuck together. Sprinkle toppings and serve chilled in the morning. It doesn’t get easier than this. Remember. Enjoy every mouthful, stay healthy, be grateful, enjoy your life x
