The chia seeds when mixed with a liquid they swell a lot and help us create desserts of different consistencies.
But what is the correct relationship between liquids and chia seeds?
Much depends on the liquid you want to use, I suggest you my way of creating spoon desserts of different textures
- 18% chia seeds on the liquid (18 gr of chia seeds on 100 ml of liquid of your choice) It is the right choice for a thick and creamy pudding, especially if you use fatter milk such as coconut milk.
- 18% chia seeds on the liquid (18 gr of chia seeds on 100 ml of liquid of your choice) per create a medium level consistency.
- 9% chia seeds on the liquid (9 gr of chia seeds on 100 ml of liquid of your choice) t will give you a much softer chia pudding, to which you may also want to add cereal flakes.
Today I share the recipes of two puddings that I often prepare especially for “breakfast”. One fruit s pudding and one chocolate pudding, they are just the bases to be enriched with what you like most:
- fruits fresh and dried
- oil seeds
I prepare them using an unfiltered cereal milk which makes the pudding particularly dense and not suitable for adding cereal flakes or muesli.
Cereal flakes milk
This is the dose for 4 puddings of the size you see in my image:

Soak the cereal flakes, you can choose the type of soaking that is most congenial to you:
After the soaking time, the cereal flakes will be soft and can be blended with an immersion mixer.
You can filter the milk by lining a colander with a tea towel, in this case I have not done it I preferred a denser milk.
