I adore chia seeds! I have used them in everything from puddings and breakfast bowls to smoothies and baking projects..
So today I put a very berry and cherry spin on my fave chia recipe. With a video!
The theme of a lifetime: Progress Not Perfection. And that applies to me and cooking videos too.
Videos! I am super excited to finally get back in a recipe video groove here on HHL. I have been putting off videos because I have long been using the excuse that I do not have the "perfect" setup for shooting videos. My kitchen is too dark and not in the right angle, so what is a girl to do? Instead of shunning videos I decided to rig a nice white tabletop and just start shooting recipes + tips + chatter in my living room where the light is good. So these first few videos are not perfect, but I hope you will like them! Because I love talking to you guys face to face ..er.. face to camera? :)
Today's recipe is a classic that I know you guys are probably familiar with, but it is such a wonderful recipe for spring and summer, when fresh fruit is everywhere, that I wanted to pull it out and into the spotlight once again.

Cherry Berry Chia Seed Pudding
This breakfast approved chia seed pudding celebrates berry season!
- 5 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup + 1 Tbsp almond milk
- pinch of pink salt
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1 scoop rice protein powder (opt'l) - Philosophie's Berry Bliss used
- 1-2 tsp maple syrup, grade B (opt'l)
- 1/2 cup organic blueberries
- 4+ cherries
- 4-5 Brazil nuts
- Combine the almond milk and chia seeds in a tall glass. Add the cinnamon and salt. Stir briskly for about a minute or two. If adding the protein powder and optional superfoods, stir those in now too. You can also add a sweetener if you want your chia seed pudding on the sweeter side. A teaspoon or two of maple or agave syrup should do it.
- Place glass in the fridge for at least four hours, overnight is best, try to stir at least a few times during that time to prevent the chis seeds from clumping up.
- When the pudding is thickened and ready you can transfer it to serving dish(es). Top with a ring of blueberries, the chopped Brazil nuts and cherries. You can keep the cherries whole with the stem or remove the pit and stem.
- Serve right away or chill in the fridge, covered, until ready to serve. I like to consume my pudding within a day of making it.
