Lamington Inspired Chia Pudding

Ingredients

  • Chia Seed Jam:
  • 1 cup of frozen berries
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Optional: 1 tbsp raspberry jam (we use St Dalfour)
  • Vanilla Coconut Pudding:
  • 1 can of coconut milk (400ml) (or any milk of choice will work)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut (optional)
  • Chocolate Icing:
  • 3 tbsp of cacao or cocoa
  • 1tbsp of maple syrup
  • 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil (melted)

Method

  • For the Chia Jam: Heat frozen berries in microwave for 1-2 minutes or over stove-top until melted.
  • Stir through chia seeds and jam (if using).
  • Pour evenly into 2-3 jars.
  • Vanilla Coconut Pudding: In a medium bowl combine the coconut milk, chia, maple syrup, vanilla, protein powder and coconut. Whisk until ingredients are well combined.
  • Pour evenly into the jars
  • Chocolate 'Icing': In a small bowl combine all choc icing ingredients (wait until the vanilla layer is part set if you would like the choc layer to stay on top).
  • Gently pour on top of each pudding.
  • Sprinkle with some coconut flakes and place in fridge to set for at least a couple of hours or overnight.
  • As the choc cools down you get these amazing chocolate crunchy bits (think iced magic) throughout the pudding. Yum!
