As a huge fan of chia puddings and colors I had to come up with a pink version. This one is less sweet that the other recipes I have posted so far, but you can easily add in honey or maple syrup if you prefer them sweeter.
Chia puddings has kind of become a trend lately and recipes keep popping up everywhere for vanilla chia pudding and chocolate chia pudding. Both are awesome I make them regularly, but I felt it was time for something new. I had a new friend over for lunch last week and inspired by her warm and sunny personality I came up with this saffron pudding with a hint of cardamon. She loved it! Here’s to new friends! To the warm and sunny people in our lives!
I have posted recipes for chia puddings, and even my favorite chocolate chia pudding, but I decided it was time for an upgrade. This upgrade I have my son to thank for. It was his idea, and it turned out so great that this is the version I make regularly now. If you can handle lactose – try it!
For long now I’ve been trying to make something similar to porridge – only grain free. The vegetable ones I’ve tried was OK but never fabulous. This chia seed coconut porridge with vanilla however is like heaven in a bowl! Both warm and cold, so you can also make it in the evening and eat it directly out of the fridge in the morning. Talk about a fast breakfast! And yummy too!!
We’ve been loving the chocolate chia seed pudding I wrote about a while back, in a guest post over at CLEW.lu, eating it a couple of times every week ever since – so I thought we could need a bit of variation. The other day I experimented with blueberries and made a colorful version of the pudding. We all liked it, but a vote in the family afterwards, about which dessert was better, ended 3 votes for chocolate and 1 vote for blueberry – so it’s good indeed, but maybe not awesome…? Or was the competition just too hard? You’ll have to try and decide for yourself!
My husband has a soft spot for vanilla puddings and has been asking me to come up with one that will still fits our lifestyle. My patient kids have been forced (poor kids! ) to eat puddings every day now for some time, while I tried different combinations – until I was happy with the result. And this is it! An oven baked vanilla pudding with blueberries!
