Build Your Own Vegan Chia Pudding

vegan chia pudding

The creamiest, dreamiest  Grain Free and Vegan Chia Pudding. It’s my go to base mixture. I’ve added a selection of my favourite toppings below but feel free to go wild and use your own. Any nuts and fruits work well too. Though don’t forget that fruit is still sugar so if you can stick to low fructose fruits like berries.

I like mine cold and topped today with a medley of ground flax, seeds, some T2 dehydrated berries, goji berries and a couple of hunky, chunky dark chocolate chunks! If you can’t have oats, I’d definitely recommend you give this one a go. Serve in a bowl like my Raspberry and Pomegranate Cacao Crunch, my Berry, Almond Butter and Coconut or in glass for a delicious chia parfait like my Blueberry Coconutty Chia Parfait. Happy Sunday guys, what’s cooking in the kitchen today? Jo x
