Toppings are a great way to add flavour and texture to chia pudding recipes. Feel free to play around with your favourite toppings, but here are some ideas to help get you started:
FRUIT: Fresh fruit including berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries), sliced grapes, banana, oranges, mango and kiwi are all great on top of chia pudding.
GREEK YOGURT: A dollop of plain greek yogurt adds extra protein.
COCONUT CREAM: Coconut cream is one of my favourite healthy dessert toppings. It’s rich and creamy and tastes delicious.
COCONUT: Shredded coconut or coconut flakes add a good source of fibre. Adds great texture when combined with other toppings like fresh fruit or chocolate chips.
CHOCOLATE CHIPS: For a healthier option, choose 70% dark chocolate chips that are sweetened with stevia. For a sugar-free version consider trying cacao nibs.
NUTS: Add any of your favourite nuts for extra crunch, including almonds, walnuts, peanuts, etc.
SEEDS: Hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds are all great sprinkled on top.
PROTEIN POWDER: a great way to add extra protein.
