Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding
September 21, 2017
Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding is healthy way to start your day with a breakfast pudding made with a Spicy Chocolate Chai Organic Pu-erh Tea, coconut milk and chia seeds.
These chia puddings are a super easy way to get your week day rushed mornings back under control. All you need to do is steep the Spicy Chocolate Chai Organic Pu-erh Tea, in your favorite non-dairy warmed milk, add a dash of vanilla, maple syrup, stir in the chia seeds the night before and refrigerate. In the morning, you will wake up to the perfect fall breakfast pudding treat. We just love all of the Fraser Tea products. All of their teas are organic and they have some really delicious unique tea blends. We are currently addicted to their healthy high anti-oxidant matcha green teas to add to our smoothies! Have you ever had a tea mocktail or had a Go Go Goji Turmeric Organic Tea? We can't wait to explore them all.
Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding is almost like eating dessert for breakfast, but it is healthy. Pu-erh tea has numerous health benefits. Pu-erh tea (cha) is high in antioxidants, helps reduce cholesterol, aids in weight loss and is warming. We just love Fraser Tea products as they create custom handcrafted organic tea blends right here in Michigan and deliver them fresh to you.
Spicy Chocolate Chai Organic Pu-erh tea is perfectly delicious in the autumn/winter seasons with its warming spices, chocolate aroma and smooth finish. This tea works perfectly in this chia seed pudding. It also has the benefit of a little caffeine to start your eye-opening morning.
You are just going to love Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding as it is so easy to make with only 5 ingredients, super creamy, mouth happy texture and you can add your own special toppings. Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
We tested this recipe with many kinds of non-dairy milk products such as almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk and hands down coconut milk was our favorite. Coconut and chai go together lovely. We used the coconut milk in the boxes, the drinkable version. However, we also tested it with pure unsweetened coconut milk in a can (Thai Kitchen Brand) and it was delicious but very rich so thin it out with a little almond milk or water.
You can top your Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding with anything your heart desires but we whipped up coconut cream whipped topping, a little cocoa powder and toasted unsweetened coconut for a little crunch. Cocoa nips, fresh fruit and even a little coconut yogurt would be super delicious as toppings.
The ratio for non-dairy milk to chia seeds is 1 cup non-dairy milk to ¼ cup chia seeds. After you add your Spicy Chocolate Chai Puer Tea to the chia seeds, you will put it in the refrigerator in a covered container. After a couple of hours, your Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Pudding will already start to thicken up because the chia seeds will start to plump up. However, the best texture is waiting until the morning to eat or at several hours later when the chia pudding is cold and set.
Chia seeds are a superfood. They are high in antioxidants, fiber, minerals and have been proven help help combat diabetes. Chia seeds are a lovely way to sneak in a little added nutrition into a breakfast treat.
Last but not least...We are still in moving boxes here at Healthy World Cuisine and under renovation. Thankfully, the very first box we grabbed had little mason jars with lids so we could make these delicious Spicy Chocolate Chai Pu-erh Chia Puddings.
