Chia seed pudding is the perfect breakfast or pick me up snack. You can use a simple recipe or get creative and add different flavours e.g. honey or cinnamon.
We like to keep things simple here at LuvaBerry so this recipe has only four ingredients:
- Chis seeds – black or white, your choice
- Coconut cream
- LuvaBerry Strawberry Dust and Crunch
- Fresh strawberries
We used a glass to show off our strawberries but you can use anything Like an old jam jar or tall glass.
We experimented a little and found that the ratio is everything! When we didn’t use enough cream, the chia seeds were very hard. The texture we’re looking for is a creamy dessert, but you can play around to see what you like best. We finally took guidance from this blog and did 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for every half cup of cream.
We sliced some fresh fruit for decoration – the clear glass allows for the beautiful strawberry colour to be seen. Making sure the chia seeds are very well mixed with the cream/milk is important, the seeds need to soak up all the liquid, you might even want to mix a second time after waiting a minute. At this point we added in our LuvaBerry Strawberry Dust to give it a pink pop of colour – two teaspoons, but you can add as much as you like – it’s pure fruit with no added sugars, colourings or preservatives.
You then leave it in the fridge to set for at least three hours. We chose to decorate our pink chia seed pudding with LuvaBerry freeze-dry Crunch strawberries, but you can use fresh with a sprinkling of shredded coconut – get creative!
We hope you enjoyed this easy recipe and can get creative with the LuvaBerry freeze-dry range.
