My Paleo exploration… Raspberry Chia pudding

raspberry chia pudding paleo clean eating healthy breakfast raw food recipe cooking

I’m coming to end of week three on a very strict 30 day Paleo regime. Firstly, I’m loving it, and starting to feel the benefits of eating such clean food. But finding your favourite meal options can be a little challenging at first.

I struggled a little with breakfast alternatives, until I discovered Chia pudding. This version has been my favourite (and saviour) so far. It’s easy-as to make, provides breaky for 2 days, and tastes ridiculously good.

I wasn’t sure about the addition of lemon, but without a doubt it’s what makes it. Provides a fresh zing that wakes you up first thing!

Raspberry Chia Pudding

  • 1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup almond mylk… (or  soy, cows or coconut milk)
  • 1 tbsp honey (or I used maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (I use a good quality organic vanilla paste)
  • the juice of one lemon
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

What to do…

  1. In your food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients (except chia seeds) and process until smooth. Add the chia seeds and mix together.
  2. Pour mixture into one large bowl, two bowls or jars.
  3. Cover or put the lid on and let it rest for about 1 hour, shake/stir again and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight.

I tried getting away with not sharing this with my kids, but the striking pink colour had them asking for a taste first time! Who am I to complain if they want to eat chia pudding, as long as they leave enough for me!

You can try this recipe with any other fruit, I chose berries as they are preferred on a Paleo diet.

Enjoy!
