FRUITY CHIA PUDDING
with nut butter and strawberries
Wihouuu, as I am writing this it is the very first day of spring!
I say wihou, but there really isn't too much to wihouu about.
It rained all day, the sky was so grey I had to use the lights on my bike and on top of that I realised that my rainproof pants are not rainproof at all.
So there I sat, in my office chair, with a wet bum and soaked socks
And if that wasn't enough, my coat that I scored for 3€ in a second hand shop which I have been bragging about to everyone is also ABSOLUTLY not waterproof, which led to a massive wet patch juuuust right on my boob, placed exactly so that it looked like I had a breastfeeding mishappening.
ANYWAY except all that I had a very good week, really!
I did a few things that are totally out of my comfort zone, I meal prepped a lot and you all will be verry pleased to hear that my cat is no longer peeing on the couch (I'm crossing my fingers that I didn't just jinx it by writing this down here).
So whilst sitting in my clean couch I was scrolling through instagram and bumped into Green Kitchen Stories last recipe and it awoke a long forgotten memory out of the depts of my brain.
I HAVE SHOT THE SAME RECIPE LAST SUMMER!
And then completly forgot about it, poor little recipe.
So as I shot the pictures of this recipe last summer I think it is great to celebrate the first day of spring with and invite some sunshine into our morning routine, right?
To be fair, it isn't really a recipe.
It is more like an idea that you can twist to your own preferences and experiment with.
It is chia pudding, but with fruit: mind blowing I know!
You could try it with any fruit, but my favourites are definitly the ones with blackberries or strawberries.
- 3 tsp of chiaseed
- 100 gr of (frozen) strawberries or blackberries or any other berry
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of cardamom
- 250 ml of plant based milk, I use oatmilk
- a handfull of almonds, chopped
- a tablespoon of shredded coconut
- some fresh seasonal fruit, I used strawberries
- a good tablespoon of nut butter, this is peanut but I think almond or mixed butter would be even better
Start by mushing the fruit with a fork and add the spices.
If you use frozen strawberries you can blend them with the milk and the spices in a blender until smooth and thick.
Add the chiaseeds to the mixture and stirr well. Let it sit for a few hours, ideally overnight.
Once the mixture has a gel like consistency pour it into a glass adn add the nut butter on top. decorate with the coconut, fresh fruit and the chopped almonds and that is it!
