Blue Chia Pudding


  • Author: Agnieszka

Description

This Blue Chia Pudding is a fun and creative snack, breakfast or dessert that’s absolutely packed with nutritional goodness! 


Ingredients

Scale

1/4 cup chia seeds (I recommend white chia seeds)

1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk

3/4 cup unsweetened plant milk, such as soy or almond

1 teaspoon blue spirulina powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup


Instructions

1.     Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a lid or a large jar with a spoon until everything is well combined and no specks of blue powder or dry seeds are visible.

2.     Let the pudding sit for 5-10 minutes, then give it another stir to break any clumps that may form.

3.     Close the lid and place in the fridge for at least an hour to thicken.

4.     Stir again and serve layered with plant-based or regular yogurt or on its own.

Notes

When stirring the ingredients, make sure to get all chia seeds to avoid dry seed “pockets”.

I recommend placing a can of coconut milk in a bowl of hot water for about 15 minutes and shaking the can vigorously before opening. This will break down the layer of coconut goodness (cream) that forms on top and will make it easier to combine with the rest of the ingredients. If you see small bits of coconut cream floating in your milk, that’s normal.

If you don’t want to use maple syrup, swap it for honey, mashed banana or your favorite sweetener, such as stevia or monkfruit.

For a leaner version, you can swap canned coconut milk for equal amount plant-based milk but the pudding will be significantly less creamy.
