Chia Seed Puddings

This summer there have been lots of fresh and tutti fruity recipes posted all over social media. From acai seeds, berries, nuts, chia seeds, coconut, tropical fruits and cocoa powder, you name it – there are loads of recipes to experiment with! 

I recently experimented with chia seeds and coconut milk, crossing my fingers that I would end up with a trendy chia seed pudding (or close enough)… Turns out they aren’t nearly as hard as they look and taste refreshing with a sprinkle of coconut and seasonal berries on top.

The Ingredients:

I found my recipe in one of my Instyle magazines, however you can find many more on Pinterest, Instagram and blogs…. these are the ingredients I used…

Vanilla and/or coconut yogurt

Chia seeds

Coconut milk

Vanilla bean extract

Cinnamon

Berries

The quantity of each ingredient depends entirely on your personal taste and flavour palate. If you enjoy a crunch I recommend adding 2 to 3 tablespoons (per serve), and less if you prefer a smoother texture.

The Recipe:

#1: First mix together the coconut milk and yogurt until all the same density and there are no lumps.

#2: Next add in your desired amount of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
