Chiapudding with apple crumble

Admittedly, chia pudding and I were not best friends right away. The very first time I tasted it, it was bland, tasteless and I absolutely could not imagine anyone willingly making it. But I soon learned that it’s all about the extras. If you want to make a really tasty chia pudding, you have to add flavor. Like with this chia pudding with apple crumble.

Is chia pudding healthy?

The short answer to this question is yes. Chia seed is a super healthy seed and it makes your gut happy. Check out this link here on more information on why chia seed is so healthy and why it’s a good idea to add them into your food from time to time. And great to start the day with this. Chia absorbs a tremendous amount of moisture so because of this it automatically turns into a pudding if you leave it out for a while.

But as I mentioned, chia is not very tasty by itself. So you will have to add flavor to it. Fortunately, this is very easy and the spices and fruit I use here give it a sort of apple pie feel. The nuts on the top (adding them only just before serving) give you an apple crumble. You can prepare the chia pudding ahead of time and keep it in the fridge overnight so your breakfast is ready to eat the moment you wake up. It’s handy to keep the crumble separate.

If you put it on top of the chia pudding immediately, the crunch disappears because the nuts also absorb the moisture. So keep it separate and sprinkle it on top in the morning. Ready!
