The most fun chia seed breakfast pudding that looks like a rainbow but made with all organic ingredients that are good for you !
Believe it or not, I actually had 2 more flavors ready, a strawberry one and this vanilla one. Problem was that I had no room left to layer them up. And you know I wasn’t even going to attempt to transfer this rainbow into another glass to make more layers. But you can ! Just use some tall highball glasses like these instead and keep layering up that rainbow ! It would look gorgeous with even more layers !
I almost made my espresso chia pudding too, but I just didn’t feel it was really going with the fruity ones. I’d like to mix that one with just vanilla next time.
So let me break down this Rainbow Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding for us:
Layer #1 Dark Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
Layer #2 Wheat Grass Chia Seed Pudding
Layer #3 Dragon Fruit Chia Seed Pudding
Laye #4 Avocado Chia Seed Pudding
Layer #5 Mango Chia Seed Pudding
I finished the rainbow with a spoon of the dragon fruit and avocado pudding, then garnished with edible flowers and a sparkling of bee pollen.
So If you want to get your kids on a healthy breakfast kick this is a vegan chia seed pudding they can not say no to. You can get super creative and add their favorite toppings too: blueberries, chocolate chunks, granola, coconut, whatever your kids love, pile them on top.
I’ve been in love with chia seeds for years, just the thought of waking up and reaching into my fridge for a chia seed breakfast pudding is so exciting to me. We are talking pudding for breakfast kids ! And it is so good for us ! I’m never letting go !
I made the wheat grass and lime version for the first time yesterday and I was over the moon. I clearly could not mix and match all the flavors for different photographs, but i can tell you right now that wheat grass chia and dragon fruit chia pudding are happening in the same jar moving forward.
Also the avocado lemon and the dragon fruit are just the most gorgeous couple you ever saw. Because you know how I feel about green and pink, this is red carpet magic ! If that makes sense to anyone else not in Hollywood, I hope it does. The creaminess of the avocado is unreal, so decadent yet so good for us.
If you can make a little room for this vanilla chia seed pudding, I would layer it right on top of the chocolate layer and build up from there.
I thought of just layering this chia seed breakfast pudding in a trifle dish, but then I decided individual servings work best as every person gets to experience and enjoy perfect layers of rainbow pudding, so everyone gets a Unicorn rainbow pudding of their own ! Falalalalalala ! ~ Florentina Xo’s
