GOJI AND BLUEBERRY CHIA PUDDING


I originally made these gorgeous specimens for my own enjoyment (indulgence), however I was so impressed with the taste and presentation, that I will most definitely be parading a tray or two in front of the extended family the next time they are over to visit. Breakfast will be the highlight, and what better way for everyone to start the day!

The antioxidants of Blueberries and Goji Berries, the nutritional portfolio of Chia Seeds, all that healthy Coconut fat, the active enzymes of Raw Honey, and the blood sugar regulation and metabolism boosting power of Cinnamon… It’s a complete breakfast in a cup! 

Be brave! A pudding like this should not be restricted to mornings... Sneak it in at any time! ;)


GOJI AND BLUEBERRY CHIA PUDDING

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Nut Free.

Serves: 2
Total Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Setting Time: 5 hours
Fat & Calories: Who cares when you’re eating fantastically healthy! Come on!





Ingredients:


1 ½ cups of coconut milk
¼ cup of organic chia seeds*
2 heaped teaspoons of raw honey
½ teaspoon of organic ground cinnamon*
1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries (fresh works better, however I used frozen this time)
2 cups of goji berries
Extra goji berries and blueberries to decorate at the end


Method:

1.     In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients EXCEPT the goji berries. While mixing, try to ‘smash’ the blueberries to release those wonderful colours and flavours.
2.     Set in the fridge for at least 5 hours, or overnight.
3.     Just before serving: When the pudding has set, put half a cup of goji berries into the bottom of each short tumbler (you'll need two short glass tumblers).
4.     Dollop a layer of chia pudding on top of the berries (leave enough room to add another goji layer and the last chia pudding layer),
5.     Add another layer of half a cup of goji berries to each glass.
6.     Finish with another dollop of chia pudding for the last layer.
7.     Top with extra goji berries and fresh (or frozen) blueberries.
8.     Enjoy!


Optional Topping:


Place on top of the undressed goji and blueberry pudding: 

  1. A dollop of whipped coconut cream.
  2. Over the coconut cream sprinkle some cinnamon. 
  3. Follow with extra goji and blueberries. 
  4. Finish with a drizzle of raw honey… Delish!

Note:


Always keep refrigerated.
Add the goji berry layers and fancy topping just before serving. This will prevent the goji berries soaking up the moisture from the pudding.


Enjoy!

Much Love,

Candice. Xx
