 Raspberry chia pudding

I discovered chia seeds few years ago when I started to bake a little bit healthier and I decided to completely stop eating refined sugar. First, I was not sure about why people were so excited about it. Well, I know it is a supercharged seed rich in fibre and minerals but I did not think it added lots of taste to baking. I later understood that the power of chia seeds was not their taste but their amazing abilities to soak water 12 times of their weight ! And creating a jelly like texture when soaked in liquid. As almost half of chia seeds are made of fibre it also means that most of them are not digested by our body therefore not adding extra calories to our diet and improving transit.

So I started to use them a lot in dessert to create pudding, parfait, flan, cream or even jam. Today I am sharing one of my favourite snack recipe that I called a Raspberry  and Cream Chia Seeds Pudding. While not containing cream I really think it taste like the Strawberry & Cream drink I was used to drink from Starbucks.

 It is a very simple snack to prepare the only thing is it has to be made the day before to enjoy the pudding like texture. But then, it store very well in your fridge if you cover the bowl with a plasti wrap to avoid the top to dry. I like to experiment with different dairy free milk, berries or grounded nuts to create a variety of snacks each time. It has also been approved my 2 years old little girl so I will say it is a very family friendly snack or even dessert if you like. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Leave me a comment if you try this.
