Continuing my interest in all-things-blue and pretty, I whipped up these cute ombre chia puddings last week.
I used my Blue Majik for the color, but you could use any food coloring, natural or not, to create this effect. I have some more colors coming from Matcha.Blue and can’t wait to test them out! Rainbow projects next : )
Each layer got the following:
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup milk of your choice (I used 2% cows)
- 1/2 tsp maple syrup
- Either 1/8, 1/2 or 1 tsp of blue spirulina
Then they soaked in the fridge overnight to form a nice pudding-like gel.
In the morning, I layered them up. There’s actually a hidden layer of blueberries in there too!
And I finished them off with some full-fat vanilla Greek yogurt and cinnamon. Delish! It was almost as good as whipped cream. (And coconut cream would be divine too.)
I can say this with confidence: blue chia pudding is definitely more fun to eat than plain
