Very Berry Chia Seed Pudding

Spring is in the air here in Ireland so it got me dreaming of a refreshing dessert to make that spring feeling last: introducing my very berry chia seed pudding. It is so light you feel you’re floating on air, it is so very berry you can imagine you are walking in a field full of raspberries and the coconut aftertaste whisks you away to that tropical island you have always dreamed of! In fact, even on a miserable day, it will give you great comfort in the knowledge that we are well on our way to summer…

I made my first chia seed pudding in Spain (see recipe here) and now my second one in Ireland.. so you CAN bring the Mediterranean to where you are, right here, right now. Berries are easier to find in Ireland than in Spain even when out of season. Contrary to belief the sun actually does shine and when it does it’s the most beautiful country in the world! I was able to take this photo outside in glorious sunshine and even picked this flower from my garden. Happy days..

Ok then back to the pudding. Made with healthy chia seeds the beauty about this dessert is there is NO cooking involved. Absolutely none… so you are eating the raw goodness of the ingredients. Chia seeds are whole grain, gluten-free, high in fibre and low in calories. They are antioxidant and high in beneficial vitamins and minerals so you know you can enjoy this dessert without the guilt! I use 3 different types of berries: blackberries, blueberries and raspberries but you can use any berry of your choice. Made with coconut yogurt, coconut milk, chia seeds and topped with coconut cream it is heaven in a glass. The topping made with whipped coconut cream, coconut flakes and berries is the icing on the cake.

For the whipped coconut cream you can use a tin of coconut cream but I usually scoop the cream off the top of the coconut milk. If you find the brand you buy is all mixed together, then leave it in the fridge for a few hours and the cream will rise to the top and solidify making it easier to scoop out.

Instructions

  2. Place the raspberries, coconut milk, coconut yogurt and honey into a blender and blitz until smooth. Stir in the chia seeds. Place on top of the blueberry layer and leave to set in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Place the blackberries, coconut milk and coconut yogurt in a blender and blitz until smooth. Now place this layer on top of the raspberry layer and leave to set in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  4. Mix the coconut cream and place on top of the pudding. Then top with coconut flakes and berries. Have a very berry day!
Notes
  1. For an extra boost add some acai berry powder to the blueberry layer.
  2. Raspberries are more tart than blueberries and blackberries so I add honey but you can omit this for more zing.
  3. If using frozen berries if you feel the coconut milk, yogurt and berry mixture is too runny depending on the juiciness of the berries then add half a banana to thicken.
  4. Add a few drops of rosewater to add a rose flavour.
