Raw Vegan Banana And Passion Fruit Smooth Chia Pudding Recipe

Chia Pudding usually calls for soaking the chia seeds in a flavoured liquid (such as almond milk, coconut milk or your favourite homemade dairy free milk substitute) and letting the seeds soak the liquid for anything from an hour to overnight. As the seeds soak up the liquid, each individual seed gets surrounded by a jelly-like bubble, and the resulting chia pudding has a texture resembling that of tapioca pudding, or frog spawn. Chia seeds are a very popular superfood, particularly due to their high Omega 3 content ; they are also very high in fibre and chia pudding is an ideal breakfast, as it keeps one full until lunch. If you are not keen on the texture, you can still enjoy the benefits of adding chia puddings to your diet, by simply blending them until smooth. This super simple recipe is a great example of a smooth chia pudding for a high energy breakfast, naturally sweetened by the bananas. It would also make a lovely dessert or snack for adults and children alike.

Method

  • Place the chia seeds in a bowl with the water. Stir with a fork to stop the seeds from clumping and allow to soak for at least an hour, or ideally overnight.
  • Transfer the chia gel to your blender. Add the bananas, the flesh and seeds of 3 of the passion fruits and the cardamom. Blend until just combined, leaving some of the passion fruit seeds whole for crunch.
  • Pour into serving bowls and top with the remaining passion fruit.
