Make this Baby-Friendly Chia-Seed Pudding if you’re out of ideas on what to make for breakfast for your baby. It’s easy to make and kids love it.
There are days when I’m out of ideas on what to make for breakfast the next day. When that happens, I always make oatmeal, chia-seed pudding or semolina pudding (that recipe will come in a few days.)
Each and every one is easy to make, customizable and usually, the kids love it. And nutritious, especially if you add fruit. You can make these puddings and oatmeal for dinner too, not just for breakfast.
- 100 g of chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 400 ml of milk of your choice
- 3 medjoul dates, chopped
- 2 tablespoons of carob powder
- 150 g of frozen or fresh blueberries, or any other kind of berry
If you want a smaller portion, cut the ingredients in half, or less, as needed.
Add the chia seeds, cinnamon, and carob into a medium bowl.
I chose to use carob, not cacao powder, because carob doesn’t have caffeine and this is a baby friendly recipe. You can use cacao powder, or skip it altogether. Carob has a naturally sweet flavor, and cacao is bitter.
You can try it, maybe you will like carob more.
Chop 3 medjoul dates and add them to the bowl as well.
Pour the milk and stir everything really good. Before you move the bowl into the fridge overnight, stir a few more times. If you don’t stir, there’s a possibility that the pudding will not thicken evenly, so make sure you don’t skip this step.
I’m saying this from my experience.
In the meantime, make the blueberry sauce. Add the frozen blueberries into a medium pot and bring to a boil.
Simmer it on low heat for 10-15 minutes until a sauce forms but there are still whole blueberries left, if you like a little texture, like we do.
Sweeten the sauce if you like with a bit of honey.
