Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding

In today’s post, I’m sharing one of my family’s favourite puddings. Simple and quick to make, this Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding with Goji Nut Sprinkles makes a delicious weekday dessert, yet it’s healthy and filling enough to serve for breakfast too. What a decadent way to start the day!

Also in this post, I’m launching a fantastic international giveaway in partnership with Sevenhills Wholefoods. If you’re a regular reader of the Bit of the Good Stuff, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Sevenhills and often feature their products in my recipes. Not only do I find them to be super high quality, but affordable too. I purchase them direct from their website as they offer free UK delivery on orders over £20, which is great value. I have practically a whole shelf in my kitchen filled with Sevenhills products and amongst my favourites are their chia seeds, cacao powder, goji berries, hemp seeds and royal quinoa.

As well as their products, I also value the Sevenhills ethics. They directly source from farmers and work closely with them, fostering long term partnerships so that the farmers are able to sustain their livelihoods between harvest cycles. Sevenhills products are also processed close to their origin, which further supports the local communities, providing them with regular income and employment.

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a chance to win THREE of my personal favourite superfoods from the Sevenhills range as well as a signed copy of the Bit of the Good Stuff cookbook. I’m delighted to say that this giveaway is international so, providing that you’re over 18 years old, you are eligible to enter!

Sales of the cookbook have been going fantastically well since it launched four months ago, and I’ve been blown away by the feedback you’ve been sending me. The book’s been given all 5 star reviews on Amazon UK so far, which is amazing!

We’ve also been receiving lots of repeat orders, which must be a good sign. Some customers are on their third order, so thank you everyone for spreading the word and sharing a Bit of the Good Stuff ❤️ One reader took their copy into work and by the time the book had been passed round her office, we’d received another four orders!

The book’s also had some great press coverage, both nationally and locally. Most recently, in the April 2017 issue of Vegetarian Living magazine, not only did one of my personal heros – the wonderful Fiona Oakes – name Bit of the Good Stuff as her favourite cookbook (an incredible accolade in itself!), but the book also featured in the magazine’s list of ‘Future Classics – New Releases You Might Just Want to Keep Forever’. How cool is that?

The recipe I’m sharing today is from the ‘Breakfast and Elevenses’ chapter of the cookbook though, as I mentioned above, it can easily be served as a weekday dessert too (and we often do!) If you have a high powered blender (like this one), this pudding comes to together in just 6 minutes. No worries if your blender isn’t high powered though; all you’ll need to do is soak the nuts and dates to soften them first, then they’ll blend up fine.

Giveaway Time!

  1. Congratulations on your continued success with the book! It’s not easy to maintain strong sales and new reviews once the initial buzz surrounding the launch is past. I’m so glad that it’s going well for you!

    A bowl consisting of a mixture of oatmeal porridge and chia pudding (with fruit, most often a diced banana or blueberries) is my favorite weekday breakfast these days.

    1. Thank you Josiane for your kind words ❤️ The book sales have remained steady since the launch, which is great! And even more importantly for me, the feedback from those who have bought it, has been fantastic. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how the whole book production, launch and sales have gone. Feeling very fortunate right now xx

  2. Toasted sourdough bread spread with a generous dollop of houmous and topped with masses of mushrooms fried in coconut oil with celtic salt, black pepper and a few cherry tomatoes.

  3. My favourite weekday breakfast has to be porridge made with soya milk, with frozen raspberries mixed in and a bit of golden syrup!

  4. My favourite weekday breakfast is avocado and lime, and marmite and nutritional yeast on corn cakes with a glass of juice

  5. This breakfast looks delicious – and makes me want to buy your book! But my favourite breakfast is always porridge (made with any nut or oat milk) , with fresh blueberries and a sprinkle of seeds, sets you up for the day.
