Instructions

  1. In a bowl mix together chia seeds, milk, agave syrup and cinnamon.
  2. Once the chia pudding mixture is well combined, Stir or whisk a few times within the first hour to help it gel evenly. Cover and put the mixture in the fridge to “set-up" for 2-3 hours.
  3. You can also prep you pudding the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I usually do this. Easier. 
  4. When ready to serve, divide the mixture between two bowls. Whisk one half with matcha powder, add blueberries to the other half.
  5. Start the layers with crunchy oats (sugar-free), top with the pudding (at this point good to let it chill in the refrigerator for half an hour, you will have nicer layers)
  6. Scoop coconut cream solids into cold mixing bowl. Reserve remaining liquid for another use.
  7. Beat coconut cream using electric mixer with chilled beaters on medium speed; turn to high speed. Beat until stiff peaks form, 7 to 8 minutes.
  8. Add erythritol and vanilla extract to coconut cream.
  9. Add cranberries to half of coconat cream and beat for one more minute.
  10. play with the layers as you like :) it's so much fun.
  11. Top with nuts and blueberries.
  12. Serve in small jars!

 

 

    Enjoy :)
