I will start saying this again: if you don’t fancy complicated recipes, but you do like to eat healthy, than this post is definitely for you. Here is today’s deal: the other day I came across a “chia pudding” and I got marvelled with the fact that you can do a pudding with healthy ingredients and with zero preparation struggle.
I found this to be very exciting, because I come from a family to whom pudding is more or less like the king of desserts. However, recipes always include eggs and complicated tricks in the kitchen. Once I tried to do something we call “pudim flan” with caramel to a boyfriend of mine and the result was that I completely screw up the pan to a point that we could no longer use it. Can you imagine such thing?
So, going to what really matters here: I made a slight twist to the recipe I found and came up with a chia and oat pudding. Here are the ingredients that you will need:
- chia seeds
- milk (I used almond milk; the original recipe used coconut milk)
- honey (the original recipe used brown sugar)
Now you might be marvelled as I got when I tell you the steps. Here they are:
- in a bowl, put two thirds of a cup of milk and add a tea spoon of honey
- add some chia seeds and oats (half a cup with both, maybe… you know I’m the worse with dosing)
- mix everything altogether and make sure the honey, the seeds and oats are blending
- add cinnamon to your mixture, mix it up once again and…
- put the bowl in the fridge for two hours
The seeds and oats will absorb the milk. The honey and cinnamon will give a nice flavour to your pudding. Once your pudding became consistent, you can top it up with some fruits. This time I chose black-forest fruits, but I imagine that some peach would work really well too.
