Google: “Chia seeds are the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the sage family native to central and southern Mexico, or of the related Salvia columbariae of the southwestern United States and Mexico. Chia seeds are oval and gray with black and white spots, having a diameter around 2 millimetres”.
Well, I have been stressed by this computer is not working according to what I have wanted it to be. I have been doing clear browsing data, check for viruses and at time certain websites seems slow downloading, some were oops! reload and etc. I decided to go through each pictures that are duplicates and triplicates to delete.
I discovered this picture when I am deleting duplicates and thought how come I didn’t publish this. So, I decided to write it up and get it out before it disappear. Grateful too that I can write it up as I also found my handwritten recipe for this with hand drawn picture of it.
Make my chia pudding creamy by using thickened cream, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon and water. The fruits and sauce are prunes, strawberries and cantaloupes. One cup tilt a bit for creative design like a leaning tower and the other cup layered design. My chia pudding is beautiful with simple fruits sauce and it’s perfectly balanced creamy with sweet fruits. Let’s cook!!!!
3/4 c chia seeds
600 ml thickened cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c water
a few pinches of cinnamon
100 g white sugar
4 Tbs orange juice
290 g strawberries
225 g cantaloupes
6 prunes, chopped finely
1 Tbs orange liqueur
Mix all the chia pudding ingredients in a bowl. Leave out at room temp for about 15 minutes. Give it another whisk, then transfer to cups and cover and allow it to chill in the fridge at least 6 hours or overnight. The chia pudding should be thick and creamy.
The next day make the sauce: put sugar in pot on high heat. Stir until sugar dissolved. Add strawberries, cantaloupes, prunes and orange juice. Continue to stir till fruits break down and flavoured combine. Remove from heat. Allow to cool a little about 5 minutes. Then blend until pureed.
Strain puree back to pot, return to heat. Add liqueur and stir until sauce is reduced by 1/4. Allow to cool before pouring into chia pudding glasses. Then garnish with fruits. Serve cool. Enjoy!!!!
Note: You can use coconut milk, yoghurts or almond milk. Use any fruits of your choice. You can use jars or bowls. If not, add more chia seeds, stir, and refrigerate for another hour or so. You can create how to assemble your chia pudding and sauce.
