Chia Pudding with Mixed Berry Compote

We’re constantly looking at ways to try and improve our health, whether it be through purchasing the latest ‘superfood’ or trailing a new A-lister exercise regime. But we often forget the basics of what actually makes our bodies thrive, and funnily enough, it can be as simple as eating breakfast. Despite everyone’s body being unique and different, most of us feel out best by consuming a nourishing, balanced meal to kick-start the day. After a lengthy period of fasting (while we sleep), our body’s energy and glucose stores begin to drop. So, in order to re-fuel and get the most out of the day, we need to break the fast! Luckily enough, we’ve got some exciting breakfast recipes on our website if you’re lacking inspiration…or if a Chia Pudding is more up your alley, then keep reading!

Chia seeds are a great addition to your next breakfast…they’re loaded with a range of nutrients that have important benefits for both your brain and body. In fact, potential chia seed benefits include better heart health, increased brain function and improved metabolism! For more info about the benefits of chia seeds, click here.

COCONUT CHIA PUDDING WITH MIXED BERRY COMPOTE

Serves: 1

Chia Pudding Base

Mixed Berry Compote

  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp. orange juice
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom 
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 

Method

  1. Pour all ‘base’ ingredients into a glass and whisk to combine.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 5 hours). This will allow the chia seeds to absorb the milk and become thick and creamy. 
  3. For the compote, place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to medium heat.
  4. Once bubbling, reduce heat and gently mash the berries with a wooden spoon.
  5. Continue cooking over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and transfer to a jar/container to cool. Store in fridge until the chia pudding base is set.
  7. When you’re ready to eat, spoon the berry compote over the chia pudding and add some optional extras like Goodies and Grains cereals or nut butters.

Note:

  • Store in refrigerator for 3-4 days.
