  1. The Health Benefits of Chia
    Chia seeds have gained popularity in recent years, and for good reason. These tiny seeds are an excellent source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. The soluble fiber in chia seeds aids digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness, which can be beneficial for weight management. Additionally, their high omega-3 fatty acid content supports heart health and reduces inflammation. Chia seeds also provide essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. By adding chia seeds to your pudding, you infuse it with a nutritional boost that enhances both the taste and the health benefits.

  2. The Vibrant and Nutrient-Rich Blueberries
    Blueberries are not only delicious but also packed with essential nutrients. These tiny fruits are loaded with antioxidants, which help protect your body against free radicals and promote overall well-being. The anthocyanins present in blueberries contribute to their vibrant color and offer anti-inflammatory properties. Consuming blueberries has been associated with improved cognitive function, cardiovascular health, and healthy aging. By incorporating blueberry mousse into your chia seed pudding, you introduce a burst of flavor, antioxidants, and a touch of natural sweetness to elevate your dessert to the next level.

  3. The goodness of 100% raw manuka honey
    Steens Manuka honey is a remarkable natural sweetener that can take your desserts to another level. Renowned for its unique properties, Manuka honey is derived from the nectar of the Manuka tree in New Zealand. This extraordinary honey is cherished for its potent antibacterial and antioxidant qualities. Incorporating Manuka honey into your dessert not only adds a touch of natural sweetness but also enhances its health benefits. Its antibacterial properties can support digestive health, while its antioxidant content helps boost the immune system.

  4. Savoring the Crunchy Pleasure of Vanilla Cookie Crumbles
    When it comes to dessert, texture plays a crucial role in the overall experience. The addition of crumbled vanilla cookies brings a delightful crunch to your chia seed pudding. The combination of smooth and creamy pudding with the crispy cookie crumbles creates a satisfying contrast that excites your taste buds. Opt for high-quality vanilla cookies that complement the flavors of the pudding. These sweet and fragrant crumbles add an element of indulgence to your dessert without overpowering the nutritious components

  5. A Versatile and Customisable Dessert.One of the best aspects of chia seed pudding with blueberry mousse and crumbled vanilla cookies is its versatility. This dessert allows you to experiment with various flavors and toppings to suit your preferences. You can add a dash of cinnamon or a drizzle of honey to enhance the taste. Try incorporating different fruits, such as raspberries or sliced bananas, for a refreshing twist. For an added crunch, consider sprinkling toasted nuts or granola over the top. The possibilities are endless, allowing you to create a unique and personalised treat each time.

Chia Pudding

  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate at least two hours, or overnight.

  • Blueberry Mousse

    In a saucepan set over medium heat, cook frozen blueberries, honey and lemon juice until the honey melts and blueberries begin to break down.
    In a small bowl, combine corn flour and water. Add the slurry to the saucepan in which the blueberries are cooking and bring the mixture to a boil.
    Set it off heat and allow to cool completely.

    Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the whipping cream until still peaks form.

    Carefully fold in the cooled blueberry mixture into the cream and refrigerate.

    Vegan Marshmallow Fluff

    Pour the chickpea liquid in the bowl of an electric mixer or large mixing bowl. Using the whisk attachment, beat at low speed. Slowly increase the speed to high. Once soft peaks have formed (about 5 minutes), add honey in a steady stream and arrowroot starch or cream of tartar. Continue beating on high for another 5 minutes, or until stiff, glossy peaks form. Peaks should be able to hold their shape.

    Chocolate Sauce

    To make the chocolate syrup, whisk coconut oil, cocoa powder, and manuka honey in small bowl until smooth.


    To assemble parfaits, begin with a layer of crushed vanilla cookies. Add a layer of chia pudding, then a layer of blueberry mousse. Top with a spoonful of chocolate sauce and a heaping amount of marshmallow fluff. Use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallow.
    Finish the parfaits off with a sprinkle of crushed vanilla cookies, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, and a piece of dark chocolate.
