fig chia pudding
This chia pudding with figs and almond milk is a killer, I had discovered chia pudding a few years ago since I started introducing chia seeds in my cooking, sometimes in my smoothie, sometimes in my porridge, sometimes in my oatmeal.
For a while I started making chia pudding, it’s an easy recipe, extra easy even, every time I present them with a seasonal fruit, a fruit compote, especially with the apple compote, yum yum.
Today was with the last fig in my basket, so I decorated my verrine with these figs that I tasted afterwards with the pudding, it was so good.
I used almond milk this time instead of cow’s milk, because I really like the flavor that almond milk gives. And to sweeten my pudding I used fig jam.
Of course you can make this pudding with a milk of your choice, with fruits of your choice, and sweeten with honey or just sugar. Everyone has their own taste, but the pudding recipe as I prepared it was just killer.
