Chia pudding topped with fresh berries and chopped nuts is a wonderful little treat to have for breakfast, a snack or even dessert. However, in this book we like to pair it with our smoothies to create beautiful layers, like in our Mango & Chia Parfait and Kiwi, Kale & Chia Parfait. If you have a sweet tooth, you can always add a touch of pure maple syrup or raw honey, but if you combine the chia pudding with one of our sweet smoothies, there’s no need to add a natural sweetener.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons chia seeds of choice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or raw honey
250ml unsweetened plant milk

Method

  1. Put the chia seeds, vanilla and maple syrup (if using) in a bowl. Pour over the milk and mix until well combined. Stir every now and again in the first 10 minutes to prevent lumps from forming.
  2. Spoon into a medium-sized sealable glass jar and set aside to soak in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or overnight. It’s ready when the chia seeds form a gelatinous substance around themselves and the overall consistency is thick and jelly-like. It can keep for a couple of days in the fridge, if unopened.

Tip

  • For the Coconut Chia Pudding featured in the Mango & Chia Parfait and Kiwi, Kale & Chia Parfait, we recommend using white chia seeds, ¼ teaspoon lime zest (instead of a natural sweetener) and coconut drinking milk or tinned coconut milk.
