Even though it has been around for a while, I’ve just recently discovered chia pudding. For whatever reason, I steered away from it for so long, even though I live chia seeds.

So during the lockdowns, we were making puddings in all shapes and sizes so I said why not try one with chia seeds. And it was amazing. The first one I made was with dark chocolate and peanut butter, which is also a recipe I need to share one day.

However this Summer I felt like making something just slightly brighter so I made a white chocolate and matcha chia pudding and some freshly made fig jam for that extra punch in flavor.

What I loved about pairing figs with chia pudding is the fact that they both have a crunch to them.

For me anything with small seeds paired with something very smooth is annoying (maybe that’s just me). But here both the pudding and the jam have actual seed in so it’s just a perfect combo texture-wise as well.

So we’re just enjoying the last days of Summer. It’s getting pretty cold here these days in the morning so I’m bringing my warm clothes out and dreaming about pumpkins and apple pies. Is this too soon?

Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe. Let me know in the comments if you try it.

Author Anja Burgar

Ingredients

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups plant-based milk (animal milk works okay too if you're not vegan)
  • 100 g vegan white chocolate (regular white chocolate works too, if you're not vegan)
  • 1 TBSP matcha powder
  • chopped nuts

Fig jam

  • 200 g fresh ripe figs
  • 3 TBSP white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla seeds or vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Instructions

Chia Pudding

  1. Place a small pot over medium heat.

  2. Chop white chocolate in small chunks and place them in a heat-proof bowl.

  3. Place the bowl over the pot and stir the chocolate constantly and remove from heat as soon as it completely melts.

  4. In a medium-size bowl mix milk, matcha powder and chia seeds using a whisk.

  5. Pour in white chocolate slowly whisking quickly to incorporate it into the pudding mixture.

  6. Place in the fridge for at least 5 hours, but preferably overnight, to set.

Fig jam

  1. Remove hard parts of the fig stem and cut figs into small pieces.

  2. Place them in a small pot and add all other jam ingredients.

  3. Cook for five to ten minutes or until figs become really soft.

  4. Move to a food processor and mix until you get a smooth jam.

  5. Jam will become thicker when it sets.

Assembly

  1. Once the jam and the pudding have set place the pudding into two glasses halfway up. Then add the jam and finish with the rest of the pudding. If you wish, you can add some fresh figs into the glass and on top and top everything with chopped nuts.
