You know me and my love of chia puddings, I have them at least a couple times a week for breakfast. They are so easy to make and full of healthy fats and fibre. I also love chai tea and I stumbled across this one day when I added some chai spiced cold brew tea into my chia pudding. I wanted to recreate this with some homemade ingredients to make it easy for anyone to replicate. Easier then saying chia chai pudding 5 times!
I find apples are a good fruit choice for this one because they pair so nicely with the chai spices and are also a great source of soluble fibre. The chai spices are also very anti-inflammatory which is always a plus. I topped the chia pudding with coconut whipped cream which is not something I would do everyday but it looked really cute for the photos and tasted amazing. I would recommend adding some if you are feeling extra indulgent or have this as a treat.
Top with coconut whipped cream (optional indulgence)
Begin by brewing your chai tea bag in ¼ cup of water. Steep for 10 minutes. Then place in the fridge to cool.
To make your chia pudding, combine dairy-free milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, clove and/or ginger powder. Whisk to combine. Add in the chia seeds. Stir well, and stir every minute for the first 3 minutes. Add in 1/8 cup of the chai tea mixture. Stir and let it sit overnight or for 20-30 minutes until the chia has absorbed all the liquid.
Place some of the chia pudding in a bowl or glass. Top with granola and sliced apples. If you want to treat yourself top with some coconut whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
