NO Fuss Chia Pudding!

This little dessert is great when you are short on time, but still want a dessert to finish up a nice summer dinner. I find chia seeds amazing as they almost double in size, within a very short time and provide the texture and consistency of a thick creamy pudding with much less fuss. I also like the nice crunch that the seeds provide as this gives the dessert more texture than just a boring old pudding. The maple syrup that I used for this dessert was given to me by a friend returning from a trip from Canada, the land of maple syrup. It had a much richer and nutty taste and was on a completely different level from the normal stuff you buy in the supermarkets. It really made this pudding pop with flavour.

Enjoy on a hot summers day after a good meal and get to appreciate a delicious dessert with none of the fuss.

Dessert already to eat and the maple syrup came in such an amazing tin, which I am going to re-use.

Time: 15 minutes

Yields: 3 portions

 

Ingredients

5 tbsp of Chia seeds

12 tbsp of milk

3 tsp coco powder

2 tbsp maple syrup

Desiccated coconut (Decoration)

Fresh mint leaves (Decoration)

 

Method

  1. Place the milk, coco powder and maple syrup into a jug and stir until all the powder is combined with the liquids.
  2. Place the chia seeds into the jug and stir quickly to prevent them from getting stuck together.
  3. Cover with Clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour or even over night as this will result in a better taste.
  4. Scoop out into bowls, decorate with desiccated coconut and mint leaves.
  5. Enjoy.

Just one bite away and yet still have to take photos. This truly is a cruel fate.
