The Simple Creamy Dreamy Chia Pudding is a great recipe for breakfast or as a snack. Has a great nutritional profile with all the macros needed for a good balanced diet. We highly recommend it for everybody and particularly if you have joined the Spring Renewal Challenge.
2 Table Spoons Black Chia Seeds
½ cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk (or Almond Milk or any preferred milk)
½ teaspoon honey
1 Levelled Teaspoon – Single origin Vietnamese cacao powder (is what I have used for today’s pudding but can use any cacao you like)
1 Levelled Teaspoon – Vanilla Protein Powder (your preferred). I have been using Botanika Blends ; love it for the pre and probiotics, digestive enzymes content and is plant based, all natural AND Australian. Ticks all my boxes!
a dash of liquor
Cinnamon, Chilli Powder, Orange or Lemon Zest (we zest our oranges in winter and layer in a jar with vanilla sugar; is lasting all year for different recipes, but can also use the zest from my lemon tree as obviously are wax free).
For garnish (and extra flavour and texture): chopped roasted almonds mint & kiwi fruit.
NOTE: All ingredients measured for a complete snack serving, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for 1/2 cup of coconut milk.
Mix the chia seed + milk. I recommend mixing very well until all the chia seeds are incorporated properly into the milk.
Add & mix well the cacao and the protein powder
Wait a few minutes for the chia pudding to settle and mix again. This will ensure it doesn’t separate in the fridge.
Add honey and flavours and mix well to make sure there are no clumps and don’t refrigerate it until it’s clump-free.
Leave over-night, garnish and enjoy in the morning as breakfast or a snack (can put it in jar and take it with you at work or wherever you are).
