Fruits and Veggies Monday | Chocolate Pudding for Breakfast? It’s a Parfait Day!

DSC_0012 (2).jpg

Good morning my Fruits and Veggie Friends! Do you like Pudding? I know many of you love chocolate how about chocolate pudding!

Any takers? Breakfast perhaps?

I remember growing up we were always thrilled to have special pudding treat. Do you remember making pudding in a cloud? Whipped cream with pudding in the center just out of the freezer, a real dream dessert. (I remember making it for Mr. Bird when we were first married, he just loved it. I haven’t bought processed pudding for many years because I’ve found something even better!

Chia Pudding!

Since we’re celebrating Fruits and Veggies Monday today would be the perfect day to share! A big thanks to our founder @lenasveganliving and host @plantstoplanks! Without their energy and inspiration we wouldn’t be celebrating together each week! Both inspire us to eat healthy and lead healthier lives!

We'll be traveling again tomorrow, I thought prepping for breakfast tonight would be a great idea!

Cacao Chia Pudding

  • Cacao (1/4 cup)
  • Chia Seed (1/2 cup)
  • Almond Milk (1-1/2 cups)
  • Yacon or Maple Syrup (4 tbsp.)
  • Vanilla (1/2 tsp)


  • Bird’s Coconut Yogurt
  • Fresh Peaches, Blueberries and Bananas
  • Slivered Almonds for topping!

    Mix the Cacao, Syrup and Vanilla in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork or whisk to create a smooth mixture. Add the milk and whisk again until smooth.

Add the Chia seeds and whisk again. I love Chia seeds! They’re so versatile used as an egg replacement, thickener or in puddings they really add a nutritious energy punch. Did you know the word “chia” is a Mayan word for “strength”? Just 2 tablespoons of Chia contains 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber. Chia seeds have amazing antioxidant qualities too. It’s quite the superfood! Stir your pudding once again after about 30 minutes then cover and refrigerate overnight!

Time for Breakfast!

Somehow I’ve been able to find amazing peaches lately! We love them but usually we’re lucky to enjoy one or two each season! I’ll take advantage while I can!

Of course Blueberries and Bananas!

Layer up! Voila! Chocolate Pudding Parfait

I hope you’ll try it! I served this for breakfast and Mr. Bird was chirping quite a happy tune. Enjoy this for breakfast, as a snack or dessert, your family and friends will love it. Thanks for stopping by today.

And as always, blessings to you all!

Oh my - that looks AWESOME! Chia seeds are becoming widely available here in Chiang Mai and I'm thinking to try making something like this as a special Sunday breakfast treat. YUMMM.... Peaches? Not able to take on a second mortgage this week... LOL... but it IS mango season. And passionfruits and red dragonfruits are just about being given away at the markets. I feel a PLAN forming!

Lovely inspiring post. Always enjoy to be challenged in the kitchen. :)

Shared this post to the @c-squared curation community for you too! :) Cos everyone should enjoy tying this. Did you know in steempeak you get up to 10 tags now, instead of 5? That would allow you to use #vegan #creativecoin #food and a couple of others and would increase your reach considerably. Just a thought. x

13.08.2019 15:20

You are so kind @artemislives, thank you :) I could trade one of these peaches for your abundant supply of mangoes, passionfruit and dragonfruit! Yikes, practically giving them away....not so here with any fruit! Glad you enjoyed, I do hope you'll make this for breakfast this weekend :)

I think you'll love this (hubby and mom too!) It didn't last long around the Bird house, a perfect breakfast for a hungry Mr. Bird, lol Thank you my sweet friend!

16.08.2019 00:08

I am enjoying the very last of the peaches from the market this week, but I bet I would enjoy them even more in this! Pudding was never a huge favorite of mine growing up, however chia pudding is always welcome at my table. Especially with chocolate and all that yummy fruit! This should surely give you energy for your next adventures. :)

13.08.2019 21:41

Oh I know how you love peaches too @plantstoplanks :) I think of you when I find them, lol This is such a wonderful healthy breakfast. Mr. Bird thinks he's having a special dessert with this :) With all of this protein, it was a great way to start a road trip! Thanks Katie!

16.08.2019 00:10

Oh my! Oh my! You have got to know that you and just alerted half of steemit that the bird house is currently serving! I'm not sure how one person could put so much yummy this in one serving, but you have nailed this one right to the wall.

As always you ramp up the yummy this from the get-go and never let us down. I love chia seeds also and will mix them with anything that I can. As far as it goes, you can expect me to move into the birdhouse soon if you don't stop posting such delicious looking meals and desserts. Is there no end to your talents?

Thanks again for always showing us how it is essentially a no-brainer to eat well. As always I wish you a most wonderful day.

Thank you for being such an awesome member of #SteemUSA!

i love chia seeds, i have them soaked in almond milk with my bran flakes and strawberries every day!

14.08.2019 21:45

14.08.2019 21:46

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that not so amazing? I love Chia seeds, the combinations are endless....thank you @princessmewmew! You're too sweet :)

16.08.2019 00:19

What I love about your posts is that, they encourage me to eat healthy. Recently, the healthies I have ever gone is making smoothies just so I could eat something fresh and healthy- minus the protein powder though- I always put in some milk or yogurt!

14.08.2019 23:20

Sounds like you are enjoying some amazing smoothies @nurseanne84 :) I love it! I do strive to eat healthy, sometimes I don't even realize it until I eat with other people who don't, lol I just feel so much better. I want to share with you all, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! Makes my day, thank you!

16.08.2019 00:21

Ha ha, looks like a great way to get dessert for breakfast! I usually try for a fruit smoothie which means I might get a spoon of ice cream!

15.08.2019 00:58

I know @bengy! My husband was shocked, he thought I was giving him dessert! Quite pleased I must say, lol. Your daughters would love this one! Thanks my friend!

16.08.2019 00:25

Mr Bird chirping? I would be singing like one of our little songbirds if I had this for breakfast Lol.

15.08.2019 19:21

hehe, well he was stunned! He thought it was dessert, lol Quite pleased I must say :) Thanks @papilloncharity, you're the best!
