How to make cinnamon apple pie chia pudding
Mix the chia pudding ingredients together in a bowl and place in the fridge to set for at least one hour, or overnight. Give it good whisks for 2 minutes to make sure everything is well incorporated. After an hour you’ll have a thick and creamy mixture like this!
Sautee the apples in a pan with some coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. You can cut the apples into small cubes, or leave them in larger slices if you prefer. You want to let them cook for a good 5-8 minutes until they’re soft and caramelized.
Use a spoon and layer the chia pudding and apples into small jars. You can also just use a bowl.
Enjoy these chia puddings right away, or store them in the fridge for up to a week covered. You can also store the chia pudding and apple compote separately to enjoy when you like.
Chia pudding ratio
The general ratio for chia pudding is 1 part chia seeds to 4 parts liquid. (So about 1/4 cup of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid.)
Sometimes, depending on the liquid you use and the brand of chia seeds you have, you may need a touch more or less liquid. (This will also depend on your personal preference on how thick you like your chia pudding.)
If you use all coconut milk to make chia pudding, you may need a bit more since it is a thicker liquid.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Use a mix of coconut milk and almond milk in this recipe. The coconut milk will add a rich and creamy texture to the chia pudding, and the almond milk will keep this chia pudding on the lighter side.
- You can use either homemade apple sauce or store-bought applesauce in this recipe. If using store-bought, go for unsweetened applesauce.
- Preheat the coconut oil in the pan before adding the apples so they can sautee in the oil for a minute or two. This will give them some great flavour!
- Give the apples a good 5-8 minutes to cook on medium heat so they can caramelize in the maple syrup. The apples should be pretty soft and easy to poke with a fork when they’re done.
