Soaked chia seeds are something I first fell in love with while travelling in Australia a few years ago. The abundance of nutritious meal options on Australian menus is wonderful and I often chose a chia pudding dish for breakfast or brunch. For part of that trip we had access to a kitchen so I started experimenting with different flavour combinations – this summer fruit chia pudding is my favourite.
I love that this recipe can be made quickly and put into bowls or jars the night before, ensuring a nourishing breakfast even on the busiest of days. Chia seeds and cashew milk are high in protein and fibre so you will probably find these puddings very satisfying. If you are anything like me, this won’t be exclusively a breakfast option – enjoy it as a dessert or snack any time of the day!
This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM6, TM5 and TM31.
- Grind frozen summer fruits 10 sec/speed 10.
- Scrape down sides of TM bowl with spatula, add cashew milk, vanilla bean paste and maple syrup, then mix 10 sec/speed 5.
- Add chia seeds, mix 5 sec/speed 5/reverse, use spatula to stir in any remaining frozen mixture from sides of TM bowl, then transfer to 4 jars or bowls and place in fridge for minimum 4 hours or overnight.
- Serve summer fruit chia puddings chilled, sprinkled with fresh berries and coconut shavings or other toppings of choice – see photos below.
