This Raspberry Ripple Chia Pudding means taking my favorite breakfast up another notch. Not complicated really, cause it will take you only 5 minutes to make the raspberry sauce and as for the pudding, you already know the drill 😉
The combination is amazing though: raspberries and vanilla… heaven!! You can sweeten the pudding or not, cause the sauce is sweet enough. It’s up to you entirely. I added Acai to boost its nutrition value but it is totally optional.
As for the pretty stripped pink hearts, I sliced candy cane beet into thin slices and made the heart shapes using cookie cutter. To stick it to the jar, just press it on the dry glass and hold until it sticks. These beet slices are a bit trickier but banana, strawberries, kiwi and all other soft fruits work like a charm!

Ok, let’s do it guys!
Preparation time: 20 minutes plus soaking time for pudding at least 30 minutes
Yields: 2 portions
4 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup almond or coconut – almond milk
2 tsp coconut sugar (optional)
dash of vanilla (optional)
1 cup raspberries (I used frozen)
1-2 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of vanilla powder
1 tsp psyllium husk
1 tsp Acai powder (optional)
2 cups coconut yoghurt
1. To prepare chia pudding, mix chia seeds, milk, vanilla and coconut sugar in a jar. Keep stirring until it starts to thicken.
2. Leave to soak for at least 30 minutes, best 2-3 hours. You can leave it overnight as well.
3. For the sauce place all the ingredients besides psyllium in the pot
4. Heat it up on low flame an simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the berries soften and fall apart
5. Remove from the flame and add psyllium. The sauce will thicken
6. Leave it to cool down and at this point, you can add Açai berry powder.
7. When the pudding is ready, add half the yoghurt and mix well.
8. Assemble the pots: start with a layer of raspberry sauce, then chia pudding, yoghurt and I finished with mixture of sauce and yoghurt
9. You can optionally top it with more berries
You can use vanilla powder or extract
You can skip vanilla all together if you want. It will be delicious anyway
Add more sweetener if you want to
You can thicken the sauce with tapioca or aru or kuzu powder as well. I used psyllium cause it’s very beneficial for our gut so try it;)
