Berry Chia Pudding

Labels: { , , } | © 2013 |

If you desire a delicious, satisfying yet healthy, nutritious dessert, this is the one for you. The chia seeds, a nature's complete superfood, provide a nice crunch and a slightly nutty flavour and are the richest known plant-based combination of omega-3, dietary fibre and protein as well. The pudding can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

  • 100 g Fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 100 g Fresh blueberries
  • 100 g Raspberries
  • 60 ml Blood orange juice or water
  • 10 Dried longan flesh or dates
  • 3 tbsp Chia seeds
  • Maple syrup for drizzling, optional
  1. Combine fresh berries, blood orange juice, and dried dragon flesh in the blender. Process until completely smooth.
  2. Transfer the pureed fruit mixture into a bowl, then stir in the chia seeds until well blended. Cover with a plastic film and refrigerate until very thick and pudding-like, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Divide the pudding among 3-4 serving glasses. Drizzle with maple syrup if desired and serve chilled. | © 2013 |

Nisa Homey 24/3/13 07:11

This is what I need right now Angie, and the color is OMG!....your pictures are killing me....bookmarked!!

Ann@Anncoo Journal 24/3/13 07:14

Angie, you made the best dessert! I love the colour, looks so refreshing and yummy!!

Jeannie Tay 24/3/13 09:06

Esther Lau 24/3/13 09:15

Cinnamon and Thyme 24/3/13 09:28

Oh, Angie this looks georgous :). And very healthy. Yum!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 24/3/13 10:56

A great combination! Healthy and delicious.



What's Baking?? 24/3/13 11:19

Love the deep color of the berries.. this looks really good!

Paula @ Vintage Kitchen 24/3/13 11:30

Delicious Angie to use over yogurt! I´ve been eating chia seeds lately, but never added dates or maply syrup to them. Nice!

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen 24/3/13 11:58

What lovely colors and I love the dates and the crunch of the seeds. An outstanding dessert if I've ever seen one.

My Kitchen Stories. 24/3/13 12:02

Thi8s looks like my kind of dessert Angie. The photos are light and bright and it all looks delicious

Ilke 24/3/13 13:04

This looks so summer-y and love the dates addition. Is dragon flesh just another name for dates? I love the idea of no sugar, so simple.

ahu @ 24/3/13 14:19

Just repeating what everybody else is saying, this is the most amazing color! And I love the blood orange addition. I think I may have to finally try chia seeds!

Sebeena Loyd 24/3/13 14:24

angie, this looks very attractive. I'm sure it is delicious too.

Barbara 24/3/13 14:28

What a fabulous color, Angie. That combo of fruits is exactly what I prefer for breakfast with yogurt. So healthy to serve for dessert, especially after a richish dinner.

Helene Peloquin 24/3/13 14:30

I like to add chia seeds to my smoothies. What a nice, delicious dessert!

Claudia 24/3/13 14:56

Now that's spring! Loving the taste and the looks of it. It just gave me a whiff of what's to come (I hope).

dentistvschef 24/3/13 15:19

Nice tricks,pudding without agar or jelly sounds tempting to try.....
great fibers source too....

Koko 24/3/13 16:04

Awesome! I see chia used so much with chocolate, but this pure fruit variety looks so tasty.

Beth 24/3/13 16:56

What a beautiful, colorful dessert. All that fruit makes it absolutely mouth-watering!

Sweet Posy Dreams 24/3/13 17:34

That rich color -- so pretty!

Jeanette 25/3/13 02:32

I've made chia pudding but not with fresh fruit - I absolutely love this idea!

mjskit 25/3/13 03:28

This is what I call a guilt-free dessert and I love it! We're moving into the time of year when we can get some really sweet berries like this so I can't wait until I get to make this. Thanks for such a creative treat! Have a great week my friend!

Mich Piece of Cake 25/3/13 05:31

Hi Angie, what a gorgeous pudding. I have never had chia seeds but have heard so much about them. When I buy chia seeds, I shall make this pudding instantly.

Terra 25/3/13 05:37

Happy Monday dear.

glutwin 25/3/13 12:49

As others have asked...just what is "Dragon Flesh?"....I so want to replicate this beautiful offering....the color and textures are stunning....Please culinary vocabulary may not be the most "current"...I'm at a loss at defining "Dragon Flesh"....Thanks from France...

Angie Schneider 25/3/13 14:19

@glutwinSorry, a typo, it should be 'longan flesh'.

Angie Schneider 25/3/13 14:20

@IlkeOops, a typo..Ilke, it's longan flesh.

Natalie G 25/3/13 15:06

Lovely pudding and full of berries and healthy chia seeds, it must taste amazing.

Angie Schneider 25/3/13 15:21

@KitcheninspirationsEva, I wanted to write 'longan', but thought about dragon fruit...

kitchen flavours 25/3/13 16:19

Oh my! What a beautiful and delicious looking dessert! I never would have thought to use dried longans!

Caroline - All That I'm Eating 25/3/13 17:15

This is beautiful, lovely idea. Never heard of longans!

GG 25/3/13 17:53

Fabulous looking dessert, great pictures. Definitely one to try. GG

Spicie Foodie 25/3/13 18:01

I've read about the health benefits of chia but haven't used them. Your pudding would be a great introduction. I love the colours and flavours Angie!

Tricia @ saving room for dessert 25/3/13 18:35

I thought I posted a comment last night but don't see it - I thought there was something up. Anyway I love this beautiful dessert. The chia seeds is a great idea - and indeed a wonderful super food. I find the dates fascinating - a must try~!

Beautiful color and so refreshing with the berries in this chia pudding...can you believe that I use chia almost everyday in the oatmeal, and yet have to use in pudding.
Have a wonderful week Angie :)

twodogsinthekitchen 25/3/13 22:29

Such a gorgeous, healthy dessert! The color alone is super appetizing. This has to be one of my favorites from you :)

Alida 25/3/13 22:33

I wouldn't be surprised if your photos already appear in magazines. They are just amazing (sorry if I repeat myself but I really think you have talent here). And your cooking is also excellent. Brava Angie!!

Rebecca Subbiah 25/3/13 23:00

tigerfish 26/3/13 04:23

OH yes, that is something good abt chia seeds apart from being superfood - it makes a good pudding just by being "soaked" overnight.

Tessa 26/3/13 04:53

Lovely recipe and gorgeous photos Angie!
