  • 1 dried apricot
  • 1 dried fig
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup or pure honey

Instructions

Add chia seeds in a bottle or any container. One serving for adults needs about 1/4 cup of chia seeds.

Then add 4 parts of coconut milk or almond milk depends on how thick do you like the pudding, so for one serving, you need to add one cup of milk. You could adjust the thickness of the pudding before serving by adding more milk. I like to use coconut milk for Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding and Berry Chia Seed Pudding. I use almond milk for Dried Fruits Chia Seed Pudding.

I like to add a bit of pure vanilla extract in Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding and Berry Chia Seed Pudding.



Then mix it up and mix it again after 10 minutes to prevent the wet chia seeds from forming lumps.

Put the lid on and keep it in the fridge for at least two hours. I normally keep it in the fridge overnight.

Heat up a pan and use low heat to roast some nuts and seeds. Put the almonds in first and let them roast for 5 minutes. Then add the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to roast for another 3 minutes. Leave the seeds and nuts to cook down in a tray.

Then make a hot water bath with a pan and place a big bowl in it. Add the dark chocolate, a pinch of sea salt, pure coconut oil and ground cinnamon.

Mix the ingredients when the dark chocolate melts. Set aside.

Chop the dried apricots and figs. You need one each for one serving.

Chop the roasted plain almonds.

Slice a ripe banana and set aside.



Chop some strawberries and mash them roughly. You could use raspberries too.

Now, we can assemble all the ingredients. The first one is Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding. Add some coconut milk chia seeds in a glass or jar.

Add the dark chocolate sauce on the pudding and leave some to drizzle on the toppings later. You could leave it like this or mix the sauce with the pudding. Put the sliced banana on the pudding.

Then add some chopped almonds and drizzle some chocolate sauce on top. Done!

The second one is Mixed Berries Chia Seed Pudding. Pour a few table spoon of coconut milk chia seeds in a glass or jar.

Add a few tables spoons of mashed strawberries and squeeze a dash of pure honey inside.

Add another layer of coconut milk chia seeds. Then put more mashed strawberries.

Then add some blueberries and some more pure honey. Done!

The last one is Dried Fruits Chia Seed Pudding. Add a few table spoons of almond milk chia seeds in a glass. Then add some chopped dried fruits and roasted seeds. You may add a few drops of maple syrup or pure honey (optional).

Then add another layer of almond milk chia seeds, dried fruits, seeds and maple syrup.

You could do a few layers. I normally do 3 layers.

I add more seeds and dried fruits in the photo. That is about double the amount of my original recipe.

Chia seed is one of the most popular super foods in the world. Great source of nutrients for your family. Try these recipes out. They taste fantastic too!

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure you stir the chia seeds properly after adding milk and mix it again after 10 minutes to get rid of all the lumps.
  • I like to prepare the chia seeds the night before and add the toppings the next day.
  • You could replace strawberries with raspberries. Taste even better!
