This passionfruit chia pudding is healthy, zingy and can be a pudding or a breakfast! Chia seeds just need to be soaked for a few hours overnight in water or dairy-free milk. You can actually top them with whatever fruit or granola you'd like!
Chia seeds are a bit weird aren't they? Once they're soaked anyway (which is the best way to eat them) – they go a bit gel-like, but we promise, if you haven't tried them before, they're amazing and so good for you! They're not weird as part of a delicious passionfruit chia pudding though. We love to make chia pudding as a super quick breakfast.
We make up a few portions the night before and then add passionfruit to them in the morning, along with some homemade granola and top it off with coconut yoghurt, or a different flavoured yoghurt – depending on our mood (and what we've got in). It's also great to make up in advance, as it will last for a couple of days in the fridge, covered.
What are chia seeds?
They're a great source of Omega-3, which a lot of people think are only available to humans through oily fish. Omega-3 is really important for a healthy heart and brain, as well as being anti-inflammatory.
Chia seeds are also high in protein – contrary to what some believe, it is possible to get enough protein on a vegan diet, and there are so many sources to choose from! Chia seeds contain 16.5g of protein per 100g. They really are a superfood!
What you'll need to make Passionfruit Chia Pudding:
- A jar, container or glass to make the pudding in
- A spoon
You could make some of our healthy Cinnamon Granola to put on top of this Passionfruit chia pudding. It adds a satisfying crunch to the breakfast!Print
- ½ cup chia seeds
- 1 and ½ cups almond milk
- 4 tbsp dairy-free coconut yoghurt*
- 2 passion fruit
- Optional: 2 tsp of maple syrup
- Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract can be added to sweeten it up
- Optional: 4 tbsp granola
- Mix the chia seeds and milk in a glass, jar or bowl – whatever you prefer (as well as the maple and/or vanilla if you're using them). Be sure to stir the mixture really well, otherwise the pudding will go lumpy, and we don't want that.
- Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour until the chia seeds have soaked up the almond milk.
- Serve half of chia pudding per portion.
- Cut each passion fruit in half and scoop out the insides (including the seeds) and put on top of your chia pudding.
- Top with dairy-free yoghurt and granola (if using it) and enjoy!
We used a mango and passionfruit yoghurt, but you could use plain too.
