One of the suggestions sounded super healthy and easy.
Kathy also told me that it was really yum too (although I wasn't 100% convinced).
So I tried it and I am totally sold on this great dessert idea!
I made some for our family in pretty individual glasses and I made one for a friend in a bowl, for Christmas. I made some for our own family Christmas and I couldn't stop eating it.
May I present to you... (from Kathy B with extra comments from me!)...
Chia Pudding Dessert
(It can be dairy free, gluten free and has no added sugar)
|Kathy's Chia Puddings using multi coloured chia seeds|
1 cup chia seeds( doesn't matter what colour seeds. Kathy used colour combo and I used white)
3 cups coconut cream or milk (that is about 2 cans)
Fruit slices ( mango and blueberries are our fav)
Coconut yoghurt from health food shop*
Soak seeds in milk overnight stirring occasionally. (Although I went to bed and didn't stir at all after the first time). The seeds will turn into a pudding consistency. Next day place a serving of pudding, then fruit then yoghurt then top with blueberries and maybe shredded coconut. Or you can do thinner layers and repeat them all, finishing with fruit and a sprinkling of coconut.
* Coconut yoghurt was SUPER expensive but worth it if you have to make a dairy free dessert. I used plain Greek yoghurt. Yum.
