Recipe: Probiotic Chia & Quinoa Pudding

Hello & Hallo,

You might have seen all those new vegan probiotic drinks popping-up in supermarkets recently. A lot of them are super-delicious & taste more like desert than anything else. This made me think how else can I use them rather than just knocking them back.

Entrance – Chia Pudding! 

Here is how it is done…

A little while ago I posted a Chia pudding recipe — the classic way. This is a slightly different spin on this healthy, hipster-y breakfast staple. I added some quinoa flakes for some extra protein.

What you need:

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 20g quinoa flakes (I got mine from Planet Organic)
  • 1 tsp hemp seed hearts
  • 1 125ml Biomel Vanilla Shot
  • Optional: Pinch of ground cardamom, cinnamon or any other spice you like
  • ½ cup of strawberries 🍓 & raspberries for the topping (or any other fruit you fancy…mango 🥭 would also be delicious!)

 

What to do:

  • Combine the chia seeds, quinoa, hemp seeds & spices (if using) in a bowl or clean jam jar. 
  • Add the Biomel shot & give a stir. Stir a few more times over the next 15-20 minutes.
  • Pop in the fridge overnight or at least a few hours.
  • Top with fruit. DONE — super quick, super delicious 😋!

The Biomel shot is rich in probiotic bacteria which is super healthy for the gut. Becuase they are ‘life cultures’ you can’t heat them up – so no adding to porridge. Chia pudding is a great way to use these 😄

Biomel also has their shots in natural, salted caramel & chocolate … I tried slated caramel & it was SO GOOD! I added it to an iced coffee which was to die for 😍

 

Have you tried any of these probiotic shots or vegan kefir? Any thoughts?

Guten Appetit & Enjoy!
