Instructions

CHIA PUDDING BASE - Method

  1. In a bowl or glass jar, add the chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla and optional low-carb sweetener and stir well. If using a mason jar, add the lid and shake to combine.
  2. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then stir / shake/ massage to break up any chia clumps, cover and place in the fridge to thicken for 1 - 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Before serving, stir though the yoghurt or coconut yoghurt and adjust with more almond milk if you prefer your chia puddings a little thinner.

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS - Method
CHOCOLATE

  1. Melt 2 squares of dark chocolate in a bain marie. Grate the remaining square.
  2. Mix the cacao powder, pinch of salt, almond butter, sugar free syrup and additional milk into the chia pudding.
  3. Spoon the chocolate chia pudding mix into your glass jars and top with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate and a sprinkle of grated chocolate.

BERRYLICIOUS
  1. Blitz 1 cup of raspberries, blueberries or blackberries in a blender until slightly mushy.
  2. Add a layer of chia pudding to 4 glasses or jars followed by a layer of berry and 1/2 tbsp of coconut flakes. Repeat with a layer of chia pudding and finish with another layer of berry and coconut

ALMOND BUTTER

  1. Add a layer of chia pudding to each of the 4 glasses followed by 1/2 of the almond butter and 1/2 of the chopped nuts.
  2. Repeat with a layer of chia pudding and finish with the other half of almond butter and chopped nuts.

Notes
For a looser pudding, add an additional 1/4 cup / 60 ml of almond milk after soaking.
