Tropical Chia Fruit Pudding

Best For An Occasional Treat

This pudding is super easy to prepare. Be sure to make this in advance so it has time to
thicken up. Chia seeds were the food of the ancient Aztecs. They are great for post-workout. Also, this pudding is fully raw!



MAKES 500 ml

• 1 cup coconut milk
• 1½ tablespoon powdered jaggery
• ½ ripe banana
• ⅛ teaspoon rock salt
• 2 tablespoons chia seeds
• 1 cup chopped mixed fruits
(such as banana, mango, grapes, pear, kiwi, orange, pomegranate, berries) Garnish
• edible flowers (optional)
• fresh seasonal fruits


Prepare coconut milk.


1.Place coconut milk, jaggery, banana and salt into a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour this mixture over chia seeds and let them soak for about 2 hours on the kitchen counter. The chia seeds will swell up and thicken the mixture.
3. Add the chopped fruits to the chia seed mixture. Place the pudding in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving, to make it cold.

Tip You don’t need to plate this dish like I have in the photo. You can just put in some fresh fruits in your pudding and mix it all up. If you do wish to plate it, here’s a tip: thinly slice your fruits using a sharp knife or mandolin, roll them up and place them
on top of your pudding. I did so using an apple. If you want to take it a step further, garnish with edible flowers such as pansies.
