Saffron chia pudding for a dear friend

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!

Warm or cold chia coconut porridge / pudding

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!!

Or was the competition just too hard? You’ll have to try and decide for yourself!

An oven baked vanilla pudding with blueberries!
