I love cooking desserts for the 4th of July! Some of my favorites include the Red, White, and Blue Pudding Pops and the Butternut White Cake Trifle. With all the BBQs and cookups coming up, it is imperative to find a great red, white, and blue recipe! I found one with this delicious red, white, and blue chia pudding recipe. Chia pudding recipes are all the rage these days and this recipe is absolutely superb!
Chia Pudding Recipe:
This red, white and blue Chia pudding is so much fun to make and to eat. It would make a great addition to breakfast on the 4th of July, or any of our Patriotic holiday’s, or to enjoy as a special treat. You can make these puddings ahead of time, and have them ready for any occasion you choose. They are cool and creamy, and just burst with summertime berry flavors!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
2 cups of Chia seeds
4 cups of milk (whole, low-fat, half-n-half, almond, or soy)
1 Tablespoon of honey
1 pint of blueberries – washed and drained
1 pint of raspberries – rinsed and drained
3 Tablespoons of sugar – divided, see recipe
3 – 1/3 teaspoons of vanilla
8 – 10 small glass containers
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO TO MAKE THIS EASY PUDDING RECIPE:
In a bowl, mix the Chia seeds, milk, and honey, and stir well. Cover and place in the refrigerator for one hour. Remove the pudding from the refrigerator, and divide it into three bowls. In the first bowl, add 1/3 teaspoon of vanilla, stir well and set aside. In the second bowl, mash half the blueberries into the pudding, add 1/3 teaspoon of vanilla, sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon of sugar, and stir well. In the last bowl, mash half the Raspberries into the pudding, add 1/3 teaspoon of vanilla, sprinkle with sugar and stir well. Place the raspberry mashed pudding in the bottom third of a glass container, and repeat in all containers. Place the white, or original pudding in the center third of the glass containers, and place the blueberry pudding in the top of the containers. Sprinkle the remaining berries with sugar, and add to the top of the puddings. (see photo) Serve immediately, or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until time to serve. Pudding may be kept for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Enjoy this Chia dessert!
