Black Forest Blended Chia Pudding

black forest blended chia pudding

This indulgent chia pudding combines chocolate and cherries, making it reminiscent of the classic Black Forest flavours. I decided to blend the chia pudding on this occasion for a smoother consistency that's more akin to a traditional pudding texture. I love this for dessert or a super indulgent, yet healthy breakfast.

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, good source of fibre, anti-inflammatory

Serves 1

1 cup fresh cherries, halved and pitted
3 tbsp water

For the pudding:
4 medjool dates, pitted and soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes (then drained)
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
12 tbsp almond milk
Few drops vanilla extract

1) For the cherry compote, simply boil together the fresh cherries and water in a small saucepan until a syrup forms and the cherries are softened. Set aside to cool.
2) Meanwhile, make the chia pudding by blending together medjool dates, cacao powder, chia seeds, almond milk and vanilla in a blender. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate for at least half an hour or overnight.
3) When ready to serve, pour the cherry compote into the bottom of a glass or jar. Stir the pudding mixture and pour on top of the cherry compote. Decorate as desired with fresh cherries or edible flowers.
