Since, it’s not exactly just a chia pudding, it could go as a fancy dessert or a simple breakfast. Really!
Chia, is an amazing South American seed that has quickly become a favourite superfood. Full of Omega 3’s it’s a great addition when restarting your eating habits. Plus, it hits the sweet spot for those occasional after dinner cravings.
I’ve been making my chia pudding with milk kefir. I sweeten the kefir by blending berries on hand. Most often frozen and organic, I have combined any or all; blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. It adds just enough sweet and a ton of extra nutrition.
For every serving of pudding I want to make, I add one cup of liquid to 3 tablespoons of chia seeds and let it sit for a few hours to overnight. For this recipe, to fancy it up, I served it with strawberry ‘snow’. – Blended frozen strawberries and sprinkled over a few spoonfuls of the cup I’d blended up. For what strawberries couldn’t get out of the bottom of the blender, I added a 1/2 cup of fresh blackberries to make more of a sorbet.
The combination of textures, temperatures and flavours were super amazingly satisfying. Totally beating any dessert craving I could have possibly had these past few weeks.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
