I don’t know about you but Chia Pudding has always been one of my personal favourite quick go-to’s. When I was pregnant I would often prep a chia pudding recipe for the next few days and bring them into work with me. They were such a hit that my work friend often asked me to bring her them too.
As Luka from @boobtofood says this family chia pudding is also perfect for babies and toddlers. The best part about this Chia Pudding recipe is that it is high in omega 3, DHA fatty acids, fibre, iron, protein, calcium and antioxidants. You can also make so many different combinations!
It is a complete all rounder as it works well through pregnancy, postpartum and for the whole family. It serves amazingly as dessert, breakfast or a snack. I personally love that you can purchase a large bag of chia seeds that become a long lasting pantry essential as it doesn’t take much seeds to make chia pudding.
FAMILY CHIA PUDDING
TO MAKE IT
Coconut milk (2 cups), chia seeds (6 tbsp), vanilla paste (1/2 tsp), cinnamon (1/2 tsp), ice (1 cup),
Optional: Maple Syrup or Honey (1 tbsp)
Mango + Turmeric:
Mango (1 – chopped), turmeric powder (1 tsp)
Cacao powder (1 tbsp), berries (any)
Apple ( 1 whole – grated)
In a mason jar, mix all ingredients and your combination ingredients of choice. Place the lid on and shake vigorously until combined with no clumps. Let sit for 5 minutes then shake again. Refrigerate overnight until medium thickness consistency. If too watery add more chia seeds and leave until absorbed.
