Who isn’t a fan of Tiramisu cakes, right? I too wear my heart on my sleeves for a slice— such is the incredible taste and texture! Therefore, inspired by the exceptional taste of Tiramisu, I thought of giving it an interesting twist! As I’m trying to lean slightly towards trying healthier recipes (blame the New Year Resolutions mania), this was my attempt of lacing the goodness of Tiramisu into a Chia Pudding. And I must proudly admit, that I fell in love with the rich flavours of coffee and cocoa that perfectly blended into the Tiramisu chia pudding and made it taste exactly like a dessert. This Tiramisu Chia Pudding is more than just a healthy breakfast option, and you can count on me for that!
INGREDIENTS USED IN TIRAMISU CHIA PUDDING
Milk is the main essence of a pudding. It gives base and structure to this Tiramisu chia pudding. You can try a variety of milk that’s easily available in the market, as per your taste and choice. I have used Nestle toned milk and it perfectly soaked the chia seeds. You can opt for non-dairy and healthier options also, like, oat milk or almond milk.
Finding the right coffee for Tiramisu gives you the quality you are looking for. Coffee is what rolls the decadent Tiramisu flavour into the pudding. Hence, choosing the right one is essential. I have used this coffee powder.
Maple Syrup or Honey is a smarter choice, if you wish to avoid those extra calories that comes with adding sugar. Both are amazing sweeteners and a great fit for this recipe. They give you great flavour and I personally love them! I have used this maple syrup.
Chia seeds are a source of fibers, proteins, omega 3, calcium and iron. They are a great way to balance your diet. Apart from the various health benefits, it is the main ingredient that makes this pudding dense and creamy!
Greek Yogurt/Hung curd
This protein rich ingredient is what will give you the Tiramisu Chia Pudding of your dreams!
Cocoa powder’s rich taste and aroma is the agent behind ‘I can’t have enough of this pudding’ feeling! So make sure you pick the right one and add the good flavours to your pudding.
