Making a chia pudding for breakfast or dessert is a delicious way to include omega 3s, healthy vitamins, fibre and antioxidants into your diet. If you haven't made anything with chia seeds before, they are tiny seeds that absorb liquid when they are leftover time, so if you mix them with milk or yoghurt they "set" into a solid, gel-like pudding.
These two recipes below, are the ones that I use all the time and I would say are the "best" in our household. Do you have a favourite chia pudding recipe? If so, please leave a comment at the top of this article and list the ingredients that you use - I'd love to hear it! This first recipe is particularly delicious as it has the creamy flavour of coconut and the crunch of muesli. I also like to make them up in wine glasses, so they look a little fancy!
3 Tablespoons desiccated coconut 1 and 1/4 cups coconut milk (full fat) 2 Tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 4 large strawberries 1/2 cup muesli
blueberries to decorate
In a bowl, combine the chia seeds, desiccated coconut, coconut milk, vanilla essence and maple syrup. Cover with plastic wrap and let it set overnight in the fridge. When ready to serve, spoon 2 tablespoons of the pudding into each of the glasses, then top with sliced strawberries and muesli, before repeating for the second layer. Top with blueberries for decoration.
* Turn this recipe into a chocolate dessert chia pudding by adding 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mixture and topping it with shaved chocolate.
A delicious combination of smooth chia pudding and the crunch of muesli!
2/3 cup vanilla yoghurt
2/3 cup milk
1 banana (sliced)
2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then divide into two bowls to set. Cover with cling film and leave overnight in the fridge. Serve with fresh raspberries or your favourite fruit.
Do you have a favourite chia pudding recipe? If so, please let us know at the top of this article and it will be shown underneath, for others to read. It is a delicious breakfast alternative to cereal or toast and if you set it in a container with a lid, then you can also "grab and go" and eat it on the run. Why don't you make a chia pudding for yourself this weekend?
