It’s great to see all the current coverage of plant-based choices and reducing food miles. Here at Purition, we’re proud to be using UK grown Chia seeds and doing our bit in supporting for local food producers.
Ever wondered how to use chia seeds? Here’s a really simple and delicious Chia Seed Pudding recipe for you to try…
Vanilla Vegan Chia Pudding
150ml of your favourite Mylk
30g Chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Maple syrup to taste
It couldn’t be easier! Simply whisk all ingredients in a container – Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for a few hours until nice and thick). Serve and enjoy.
For a personal touch, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder, cinnamon, orange zest, peanut butter or a scoop or two of your favourite Purition before eating.
Top with berries, banana or a layer of coconut yoghurt.
Your Chia Pudding will keep 4-5 days refrigerated.
Other ideas for your Chia…
Chia seeds make great additions to your cooking and baking. You can use them to thicken a sauce, soup or stew after it is already cooked. Just let these tiny seeds soak, as they will absorb 10-12 times their own weight in water.
Or how about jazzing up your favourite breakfast recipes. You can try adding chia seeds to overnight oats, homemade bircher or porridge.
There are lots of dishes you can prepare with chia seeds that don’t need any cooking at all. Chia seeds form a gel when soaked in water or juice, so they are a great healthy addition to jams and jellies. Or try them in apple juice to make tasty “frogspawn” for curious kids!
