Recipe for chia pudding
We have heard people say that they are not into the consistency of chia pudding, as it can be a little sticky, tasteless and without consistency. We get that and we hear you. This recipe for chia pudding is not sticky or boring. It is soft, creamy, sourly sweet and with a little crunch from the passionfruit and coconut. The chia pudding itself is layered with (vegan) yoghurt and a mango compote with lime. And it is topped with passionfruit and coconut flakes. Are you more of a classic chia pudding person, you can just choose to top it og layer it with something else you like.
Chia pudding with oat milk
In this recipe we have used our Dryk Oat Drink. This means that it is a vegan chia pudding with oat milk. You might call it oat milk, but according to laws we have to call it oat drink. No matter what, it is so delicious. The oat drink really gives it a mild sweetness and flavour from the oats. It also goes well with the vanilla, mango and passionfruit. The chia pudding has to be prepared the night before as the chia seeds has to soak up the fluids and become a creamy pudding. In the morning you can layer it and eat it right away or take it to go.
Even though this portion of chia pudding screams summer and sun, we eat it all year around. In fall with apple compote and toasted nuts, in the winter with oranges and cashew butter or in summer with fresh berries and rhubarb compote. You have to promise us to try.

Healthy chia pudding
Chia seeds are actually a superfood. They have a high content of dietary fiber with 5 g. per tablespoon. The seeds can absorb up to 27 times their own weight. When they do, it strengthens your digestion and keeps you full longer. They also contain many omega-3 fatty acids. If you eat 3 tablespoons, you get more than eating a filet of salmon. Of course it can’t replace this fatty acids as they are different, but it is very healthy for you. Besides that, they also contain calcium, proteins and antioxidants, so you can truly say that they are a superfood.
It is important though, that you let the chia seeds soak up a good amount of fluids so that they don’t soak of the fluids in your stomach. This might give you a stomach ache.
Easy and delicious breakfast
Chia pudding really is a delicious and easy breakfast. It can be made in so many different versions depending on flavour, season and likings, but also because it can be made the night before. You just have to mix chia seeds and fluids (we use 2 tbs. seed per 1,5 dl fluids) and then store it in the fridge overnight. The next day, you can top it, layer it or eat it as it is. We like to stir it with some (vegan) yoghurt for a more creamy texture and top it with flavour and crunch as a contrast to the chia pudding.
