Good morning everyone! I’m very happy at the moment, as I just managed to move my photography table up to London to live with me! Which means I’m able to start making new recipes again, and get back on track! So, this means I have a brand new recipe to share with you today.
For this post, I decided to make a simple and delicious chia pudding recipe. I made this recipe in collaboration with Alpro, to celebrate all of the different, exciting plant based ways to create breakfast dishes. And in order for me to do this, Alpro very kindly sent me an amazing selection of their wonderful products to use, as well as a beautiful Anthropologie bowl and mug.
For my chia pudding, I decided to combine chia seeds with Alpro original unsweetened Almond Milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and a grated apple and pear. Then, I stewed a combination of raspberries, blackberries, maple syrup and water to make a compote for a delicious hit of berry flavours. When both of these were ready, I simply layered them on top of each other into two bowls, with some Alpro Plain Yogurt with Almond. Lastly, I topped the bowls with some extra compote, yogurt, berries, pistachios and chocolate.
I absolutely love this recipe, and these chia pudding bowls make such a great way to eat a flavoursome, filling, plant based breakfast!
I hope you enjoy the recipe!
apple, pear & berry chia pudding
for the chia pudding:
4 tbsp chia seeds
1 1/2 cups (375ml) Alpro original unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
for the compote:
- Add the chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and almond milk into a mixing bowl. Stir everything together until well mixed. Move the bowls into the fridge for about 2 hours to thicken and gel up. Check and stir the mixture once every 30 minutes or so.
- 10 minutes before the chia pudding has been in the fridge for 2 hours, make the berry compote. Add the raspberries, blackberries, maple syrup and water into a medium sized pan, and place it onto a medium heat. Stir the mixture together for 10 minutes, pressing the fruit and breaking it down as you stir it. Then, when the sauce has thickened into a compote consistency, remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool.
- Next, grate the apple and pear. Then, remove the chia pudding from the fridge, and stir the apple and pear into it until everything is well mixed. Then place it back into the fridge.
- When the fruit compote has cooled, prepare the chia puddings. Place 1/4 of the chia pudding into a bowl, followed by 2 tbsp of yogurt, and 1/4 of the berry compote. Then, add another 1/4 of the chia pudding on top, followed by 2 tbsp of yogurt and 1/4 of the fruit compote. When this is done, repeat this process in another bowl to make the second serving.
- Lastly, top the bowls with some raspberries, blackberries, pistachios and dark chocolate to serve.
