Chia seeds are small in size but bring plenty to the table, particularly when it comes to cooking desserts. From chilled puddings topped with fruit, to chocolate creations oozing with maple syrup, there’s sure to be a recipe that tickles your fancy. Read on if you’re looking for some healthy and delicious ideas that will keep friends and family coming back for more.

 

1. Chia seed pudding

 

This classic dessert makes a great finish to hearty meals thanks to a light and refreshing taste. Apart from chia seeds, you’ll need plenty of almond milk on hand and some maple syrup or honey to bring everything together. The best part about chia seed puddings is that you can prepare them in just a few minutes and then leave in the fridge to set overnight. As for toppings? Go wild by adding strawberries, blueberries, coconut flakes, granola, cinnamon, banana and anything else that comes to mind. Whilst traditionally using milk gives a creamy texture, you can also replace with just about any type of fruit juice for a bright and refreshing taste!

 

2. Chocolate chia seed pudding

 

A decadent twist for chocolate lovers and everyone alike, this recipe is seriously easy to make. Add to the mix, cacao powder, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, sea salt and of course a generous amount of chia seeds. This simple, 6-ingredient winner is naturally sweetened and boasts a thick and creamy texture to really spoil guests. Leave to set in the fridge overnight and enjoy a flavourful treat the next day. 

 

3. Strawberry cheesecake chia seed pudding

 

If you have a weak spot for strawberries, cheesecake and chia seeds, then this recipe is for you. Think cottage cheese, greek yoghurt, fresh berries, a touch of vanilla and plenty of sesame seeds all combined into one delicious treat. The good news for home cooks and chefs is that this little wonder is both healthy and a joy to make. Simply blend the ingredients together, pour your mixture into a tray and then top with extra chia seeds and fruit before setting in the fridge for at least 24 hours. Stir before serving and prepare yourself for the fact that there might not be any leftovers. 

 

4. Peach chia seed pudding

 

A light and tasty creation that’s perfect for the hotter months. A peach inspired chia seed pudding is something that can be whipped up in a hurry, following the familiar process of mixing almond milk with chia seeds, but comes with a twist in the form of chopped peaches, agave and some freshly picked mint. Not only do these peach chia seed puddings taste fantastic, but they also look stunning when served in elegant glasses.
