Rose Strawberry Chia Pudding

Hello all!
Rose Strawberry Chia Pudding – The story of how I conjured up a magical pudding. The other day I had my school friend and her Spanish husband over for breakfast. They are both avid foodies and totally into health/wellness space. And thus the breakfast had to be planned well, balancing their dietary no-nos with my need to impress!!

I find it easy to fit the savouries into any regulated menu but its the sweets which take a little
longer thought process.

Going through my refrigerator, I knew the seasonal luscious strawberries were in for sure,
sugar is out so honey was in too. Hmm…So how to convert them into something healthy,
light, filling and good to look at?? My Aha! moment struck and I could visualise a pretty as

So Chia is among the healthiest food on the planet and has exploded in popularity over the last some years.  Chia is the ancient Mayan word for strength. And these seeds definitely pack a healthy punch. They are a quick, easy to use  rich source of protein, fiber, minerals and antioxidants. They have a mild taste and are very versatile. You can sprinkle them on your salads, smoothies, shakes, yogurt.  Mix them in your baked goodies, jams  ( you can see my mulberry jam recipe).

We read we hear and by now we should all know and honour that to eat seasonally is the best
way to get most out of our foods. Strawberries are everywhere these days! They are indeed a superfood that’s gorgeous to look at, fabulously sweet and juicy to taste and rich in nutrients.

And the third ingredient for the pudding was Greek yogurt. Its a thicker, creamier version of
curd/yogurt and very easy to make at home. Honey comes with a lot of health benefits and for me, its honey over refined sugar wherever possible! I also decided to add a few drops of rose water for that delicate floral aroma. Topping with some organic dried rose petals just added to the charm.
