Blue is my favorite color. I have a ton of blue shirts, jumpers, and trousers. I always try to force myself to not buy something blue again, but I just can’t help. Subsequently, blue food conquered my kitchen too.
Of course, you could create blue effects with blueberries, but it’s not the same like with this magic Butterfly Pea Flower Tea. To color plant-based yogurt with blue tea, just open the tea bag and mix it in. You won’t taste it, but the effect is spectacular. I almost always use erythritol as a sweetener, but you may substitute it with a sweetener of choice.
There had to be a blue flower for this chia pudding. I totally adore blue flowers and grow as many of them as possible. When I spotted these blue primulas in the garden center, I literally freaked out!
To create four different layers instead of two, just divide your blue chia pudding into four and mix in various amounts of plant-based yogurt. I have not yet figured out how to create layers that are flowing into each other (chia pudding is too gooey), but any tips are welcome.
As you can see below, blue chia pudding is a breakfast staple, and I created a lot of different blue bowls, which I posted on Instagram. Which one do you like most? My favorite is the one on the right. These primulas are too cute and match the blue color so freaking well.
Btw, chia seeds are amazingly high in fiber; they contain 37 g fiber per 100 g. Including chia pudding into your diet might help to improve your digestion. To learn more about the health benefits of chia seeds head over to Breakfast Basics – Chia Pudding.
