I had forgotten the simple and deliciously healthy pleasure that is a chia pudding. Something which was recalled via its uber distinctive texture and rekindled through its lusciousness.

It was at Mr Black Juicery (review to come soon) whom revived such fervent lust. Their chia pudding was teeming with coconut dreams and lavished with lashings of fresh and pureed tropical fruit. It was incredibly delectable; especially after sweating it out at a hot yoga class. So much so that I felt compelled to recreate, to my best ability, this chia pudding.

Now in the past I have not had much luck with chia puddings. I'd somehow manage to create either a sloppy, inedible mess or something more along the gelatin side; resembling a panna cotta more than actual breakfast. Up until this point I'd always adapted an approach of improvisation, hence the dramatic unsuccessfulness. And because of this I decided it was high time I pursued and located a recipe which was guaranteed to be a success, considering my cravings demanded so.

And I simply had zero patience or tolerance for failure.

Thankfully my persistence and need for perfection paid off with this recipe by iFOODreal. Quick, effortless and idiot proof and with the possibility of substitutions and all without catastrophe. While I could not top mine with mango puree and slices of kiwi fruit, my addition of sliced strawberries, blueberries and crunchy almond granola more than sufficed such cravings.

  1. This looks pretty good! Definitely a nutritious thing you could whip up for breakfast. I don't particularly like chia seeds because of their texture, but I'd totally be willing to try this! Hope you had a great weekend lady.

  23. Yum this looks great! :) I don't add chia seeds to things as much now as I did in pregnancy - I really should get back to it!

    I tend to go the lazy way and just add some chia seeds to yogurt, wait a couple minutes and they swell up and are nice and soft. I should try making a proper pudding! :)

    Hope you're having a good start to the week :)
