madagascan vanilla & blueberry chia seed pudding recipe

30th July 2014
It wasn’t a conscious decision to avoid Chia Seed pudding, I just never thought it would be as great as everyone made out. I find that lots of people rave about things, sometimes more so to convince themselves rather than anyone else. However, Chia Seed Pudding was not one of those things. Last week whilst picking up my weekly flowers I found myself randomly purchasing up a bag of Chia Seeds, which are nothing short of eye-wateringly expensive. Well the ones I bought were anyway, especially on such an impulse. They sat in the cupboard until I came home yesterday with my sweet tooth on full alert. ‘Ignore the Macarons in the freezer Lydia, you can do this!” I told myself. So I decided to give this pud a whirl.   Using what I had in the cupboard the ingredients were as follows: 1/3 Cup of Chia Seeds (I use TheChiaCo) 1 Cup of Almond milk (I use Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Milk, but you can also use Coconut) 1/2 a Tsp Vanilla (I used Madagascan Vanilla because I prefer it) 2 Tbsp of Argave Honey a handful of blueberries Optional: Coconut shavings   Pop it all into a Kilner Jar, I use these because they have a lid so when you shake them up, which you will need to do once you have added all the ingredients, you don’t end up wearing a Chia Seed Pud Suit. Leave in the fridge over-night and enjoy for breakfast the next morning (following another little shake of course).

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
