Chia seed is something that I’ve been trying to include in my diet. This superfood has many health benefits – the fibre help with bowel movement and have more omega-fatty acid than salmon. I was inspired to make this pudding after a one day detox with Healthy Ever After. One of their breakfast includes chia seed pudding.
Of course, JewelPie’s mantra is easy and fast. So it’s only natural that I scoured the internet to find the basics of such pudding. What you need is just milk, chia seeds and a sweetener like honey. Many recipes calls for vanilla essence for extra flavour. To keep it simple, I omitted that and rely on a flavourful packet soymilk. It turned out absolutely delicious!
Soymilk x 1 cup
Chia seed x 1/4 cup
Honey x 1 tbsp
- Mix them all together
- Pour into jars or air-tight containers.
- Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight
- Enjoy it the next day topped with any fruit or nuts.
WHERE TO BUY & PRICE
Chia seed, 150 g RM 14.99 | V-soy multigrain milk, 1L RM 4.55 | Justlife RM 59.
Chia seed – Due to it’s popularity, chia seeds are now available in supermarkets, not just health food stores. It can be found at the organic section of many supermarkets.
Soymilk – There are plenty of brands of soymilk. We’e made a comparison between Homesoy and Yeo’s. Currently, we are trying out V-soy multi-grain milk. It’s not bad. (RM 4.55 for 1L)
Honey – If you budget allows it, buy raw honey from a reputable source. A possibly good choice is certified organic raw honey from Justlife. For this recipe, we used regular manuka honey.
- Make this pudding a night before
- In the morning, top pudding with fruits of your choice, nuts or other super food like goji berries. I’ve added passionfruit. The sourish taste blends perfectly with this sweet pudding!
- The colour of the pudding is darker than usual as I used soymilk added with other grains like sesame seed.
