‘Pale green morning’
I havent made chia pudding in several months and quite frankly I started to miss the tiny pearls bursting in my mouth, so this morning was dedicated to a pale green pudding. Bella want to go out for a morning walk before 6 am already, so my morning began lovely and early. I wanted to make a healthy version that isn’t too sweet, yet something that feels comforting and a bit of a special weekend treat. Our fridge is stacked with avocados at the moment, plus I start each day with one so naturally I chose that as my prime ingredient. I added ginger for some delicious heat and kept the consistency thick. Even though each spoonful is rich and creamy, it remains fresh from the mint and lime juice. I find it important to add a pinch of salt to the pudding, I think it brings out all the other flavours and uplifts the taste.
Add the chia seeds into the yogurt and refrigerate for about 3 hours or overnight. Once ready, take a few tablespoons of the chia yogurt and blitz it together with the avocado, grated ginger and mint so it all blends together. Then add the rest of the chia yogurt into the avocado mush. ( I did not blend all the yogurt at once to obtain the chia seed consistency). Add in a pinch of salt and lime juice.
