Chia pudding is a dish I never tire of, probably because there are endless ways of layering flavours. I make a batch of this and put into a sealed container for the kids to eat whenever they feel hungry. It’s healthy but they dont know that and I’m pretty liberal about what they top their chia puddings with!. Do I hear shaved chocolate??
Chia puddings pair well with coconut milk – but replace this with your favourite nut or dairy milk.
But do I eat chia pudding for breakfast or dessert?
Both! Chia pudding is definitely a breakfast staple, but if you’d like to serve chia pudding for dessert, just glam it up with toppings such as:
- good quality shaved chocolate
- salted caramel sauce
- vanilla poached strawberries
- omit coconut water and replace with coconut cream for a richer consistency
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 tablespoon honey
- zest of one lime
- pinch salt
- Raspberries, blueberries, toasted coconut, toasted sesame seeds, toasted nuts
- Maple syrup
- Place the chia seeds, coconut milk, coconut water, honey, salt and zest in a large bowl or container, stir until well combined.
- Place in fridge for at least 2 hours.
- To serve, divide amongst bowls and top with fruit, nuts and maple syrup.
