Since making the raspberry chia drink, I’ve been keen to try out more chia recipes! Like most chia dishes, this one needs some advance planning – but it is definitely worth it! Chia seeds contain a high amount of fiber and are almost zero carbs, which makes it an ingredient I am very interested in! I’ll be honest and say the texture isn’t pleasing to everyone, but I love it!
Prepare the chia pudding the night before you want to eat it. In a bowl, mix together chia seeds (we used white chia), almond milk, vanilla extract and some sweetener to taste. I prefer to use powdered sweetener like Splenda or confectioner’s Swerve as it dissolves into the milk better. Stir well, cover, and leave in the fridge overnight.
Give the chia pudding a good stir – the seeds will have swollen and absorbed the milk. Spoon it into some serving dishes and top with the blackberry sauce. I really like the combination of the cold pudding with the hot sauce, but you might prefer to have it all cold, or all hot!
This would also work really well with other berries!
