Jar Pudding


Jar Pudding

These jar puddings are fun to create as well as being a great way to get the kids involved  with healthy meal preparation. 

Again, the possibilities are endless for variations.

  • 1 dessertspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut milk, almond milk, cow’s milk or water.
  • Approx 8-10 almonds
  • Approx 5 walnuts
  • 1 tsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp pepitas
  • ½ cup mixed berries or other seasonal fruit
  • ¼ cup natural yoghurt
  • 1 tsp coconut flakes

Ensure that there are no chia seeds stuck to the side or bottom of the jar.

1. In a dry clean jar, combine the chia seeds and the
coconut/almond milk. Stir well so that the chia seeds are well
combined with the milk. The pudding should set in about 7-10
minutes. The pudding at this stage can also be left overnight
to set.
2. Place a layer of fruit over the chia pudding.
3. Place a layer of nuts and seeds over the fruit. You can leave
them whole or you can grind them. If using whole nuts, try to
soak them overnight in water so that the protein is activated
making it more bioavailable and easily digested.
4. Finish the pudding off with a layer of natural yoghurt, and
coconut flakes on top.
5. Take a photo of your beautiful pudding! They can be kept
refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
6. When ready to eat, mix it all together and enjoy.
