One of our favorite snack or dessert option is Chia seed pudding. Whether you pack chia seed pudding for school lunch , make it for a party or take it to go-it always seem to please everyone. Well if you ask- what’s so special about it? I love how easy, beautiful and healthy they are! The chia seeds absorb all the liquids and plump up to give a creamy and satisfying bite! Playing with various colors and textures leads you to endless topping possibilities!

Recipe

Prep time:

Servings: 4-6

Ingredients:

1/2 cup chia seeds
2 cups any plant-based milk (used Oatly)
1/2 cup red pitaya puree (frozen chunks)
3 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla essence

Garnishes:
So-delicious whip cream
Few fresh rasberries 
 

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, add the chia seed pudding and the oat milk. Mix thoroughly before adding the maple syrup, vanilla essence and 1/2 cup pitaya puree blended with little water. Whisk well until everything is well combined!
  2. Place the bowl covered in the refrigerator for 2 hours minimum. You can make this overnight as well.
  3. At the time of serving, pour the chia seed pudding in a glass jar/mason jar.(If the chia seed pudding is little thick for your taste, give a splash of vegan milk and then pour in the jar.) Top it off with vegan whip cream and fresh fruits.

*Notes:
The oat milk gives more creamy notes to the pudding.
You can add any flavoring of your choice: matcha powder, cacao powder, mango puree are all yummy options!
Endless topping choices like yogurt, fruits, granolas, jams, nut butters or seeds are all delicious!
