Pomegranate Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding
While this recipe can be made in as little as an hour and 15 minutes, the perfect chia seed pudding comes from letting the chia seeds sit for a while in the pomegranate base. If you can, do step 1 before bed and let it sit overnight for a fast - and delicious - morning treat.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Passive Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
* 1/2 cup chia seeds
* 1 cup 100% pomegranate juice
* 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
* 2 tsp honey or maple syrup
* 1/2 cup plain yogurt
* 2/3 cup pomegranate jewels
Garnish: pomegranate jewels, raspberries, mint sprig
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the chia seeds and pomegranate juice to create the pudding base. Stir thoroughly to combine, ensuring the seeds are well-distributed. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and allow it to sit for at least 1 hour. If you can, let it sit overnight. This will thicken the mixture into a pudding-like consistency.
- While the chia pudding is setting, prepare the raspberry puree by combining raspberries with honey or maple syrup in a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth, then set it aside.
- Once the chia pudding has set, it's time to assemble your fruity masterpiece. Start by layering chia pudding, yogurt, raspberry puree, and pomegranate jewels in jars or glasses, creating contrasting layers.
- Top off your creation with a sprinkle of pomegranate jewels, a few fresh raspberries, and a sprig of mint for an extra touch of elegance!
