Chia Seed Pudding is so marvelous and so simple that every human being should know how to make it. As easy as boiling an egg, except you don’t even have to light the burner. Or set the timer. Just put chia seeds into a bowl with coconut milk and add your fruit or flavours. A touch of vanilla and a little muscovado sugar is, in my opinion, essential for the base. And make sure your coconut cream has the consistency of pouring cream – if it’s too thick, just water it down. I like this ratio of seeds-to-liquid: 3 tablespoons of chia seeds to 3/4 cup of coconut milk. It results in a pudding of substance, not a thick alternative to yogurt.
What you see in the photo’s – those 2 heaped servings – that’s the full mix. It’s too much for 2 people! This quantity is better for 4. But for the sake of artistry, I had to divide the lot into 2 portions so as to fill the crystal bowls. I usually just pour the mix into a glass jar like the one that the muesli is in above, and then we scoop out spoonfuls at whim.
Chia Seed Pudding makes me want to invite friends over for Brunch. I’m seeing crisp Witlof leaves filled with an egg and tuna mayo, thick slices of Fruit and Nut Bread, a bowl of butter curls. Fresh percolated coffee. A large pot of tea. And pretty, individual servings of Chia Seed Pudding, along with Fresh Berry Muffins, and more berries, in a bowl, with whipped cream.
On the Side
Fruit and Nut Muesli – Always good to have a jar of grain-free muesli on hand, and you can mix it up in minutes.
Real Simple Granola – It takes a bit longer to make than muesli because of the long, slow baking, but if you’re really craving the crunch…
Strawberry Tapioca Cream – Whether or not you’re on the AIP, this is a lovely, creamy seed and dairy free alternative to yogurt.
