Layering Up | Blueberry Chia Pudding
As we head into winter here in Australia, it’s starting to get a bit cold. Yep, it’s getting cold but we’re still holding onto the summer vibes – we’re blaming the breakfast bowls, fresh berries and beach snaps on our instagram feed.
Besides, who said it’s too late to enjoy something so fresh and yummy, even if a little frosty? Especially if we’re spoiled enough to be rugged up inside with a good book or our favourite show on Netflix (Vikings, anyone?).
This is a recipe for a really simple chia pudding, with natural sweetness from the berries and a touch of honey (optional). As you can see, we like to layer the berries all the way up for some sweetness throughout. Added bonus: it’s extra pretty this way!
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup of coconut water
- 2 tablespoons coconut cream
- 1 – 2 teaspoons raw honey (to taste)
- half a cup of berries (preferably frozen)
- small handful of almonds, chopped
1. In a separate bowl, soak your chia seeds in the coconut water for 5 – 10 minutes, or until they swell up.
2. In the meantime, whizz up about half a cup of berries. If you’re using frozen berries, it’s fine to add a bit of water to help the blender out. Today we used blueberries, but use whatever you’re in the mood for / have to hand!
3. Mix the coconut cream in with your chia seeds, and start layering the chia and berries in a glass jar / cup to serve.
4. Adding some crunch is never a bad idea – so if you like, chop up a small handful of almonds and sprinkle on top. Et voilà!
