Strawberry/raspberry smoothie bowl

Layered chia breakfast pudding with vanilla and berry flavor

I made this chia pudding for the first time last week and I think my smoothie bowls will have some serious competition in the future, because this might be my new favorite breakfast! There are so many pros to these chia puddings; they taste great, they are healthy (see my post on chia seeds and their health benefits right here), filling, super easy to make and the best part is that you can make them the night before to save time!

Ingredients – 2 small servings as pictured:
4 tbsp chia seeds
2 dl milk
3 dl skyr/greek yoghurt
1/2 – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
Sweetener of choice – e.g. stevia, honey, agave
4 dl berries – I used 1 dl strawberries, 1 dl raspberries and 2 dl blueberries

This recipe was inspired by the beautiful Dasha from Bags and Bunnies

Directions:

  1. In a bowl mix the chia seeds, milk, skyr/greek yoghurt and vanilla powder. When everything is well mixed add your sweetener of choice – I added a bit of stevia and honey, I do not remember how much, but you can always taste it to see if it is sweet enough to your liking.
  2. Pour half the mixture in another bowl and mix in the blended berries (try blending them on their own and if you blender can’t handle it then add a little bit of milk or water). Depending on how sweet your berries are you might need to add a little more sweetener.
  3. Now you need to put the mixtures in the fridge to allow the chia seeds to soak up the liquid and expand – chia seeds can actually absorb up to 12 times their own weight in liquid! You can either choose to just let them sit in the fridge overnight and then mix and serve them in the morning, but if you are in a hurry in the morning then you can prep them the night before. The chia seeds will need to have soaked up the milk before you mix the two, but give it 1/2 – 1 hour in the fridge and then you can pour half of each puddings into a jar or glass – use a spoon to stir the pudding well before adding it to the jar.
  4. When you have adding the puddings to the jars/glass it is time to add your toppings of choice – I topped one with kiwi and some freeze-dried raspberry and the other with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. If making these the night before then make sure to choose toppings that does not get all soggy in the fridge (e.g. bananas) – in my experience kiwi, berries, mango and pineapple are fine to add the night before.
  5. And you are done, enjoy! :)

      Hey I really wanna try this but I wanna use the same yogurt and it’s so hard to find a good one nowadays. What do you recommend?

      I always use plain skyr instead of yoghurt, but it can be hard to find outside Scandinavia :/

    Hej! Jeg bliver da også lige nødt til at prøve de her to, men jeg har lige lidt spørgsmål:
    – Hvor kan man købe chia frø henne? Har aldrig hørt om dem før, så jeg ville lige forhøre mig om det ;-)
    – og bruger du fryse-bær? De fleste man kan købe i dagligvarebutikkerne skal nemlig koges før brug (står der på pakken), men hvad gør du? :-)
    Hilsen Pernille.

      Hej Pernille, man burde kunne finde chia frø i de fleste supermarkeder, jeg har i hvert fald set dem i både Føtex, Bilka, Superbest, Superbrugsen og jeg tror også de har dem i Irma. Man kan også få dem i alle helsebutikker :) Ja jeg bruger frosne bær og jeg må indrømme at jeg aldrig koger dem, men det bør man gøre, så jeg er et mega dårligt eksempel! -Signe :)
