Dragon Queen Chia Puddings with Kiwi & Dragonfruit


I thought I'd follow up on my last chia pudding post with another favourite combo of mine, dragonfruit and kiwi. Honestly, there are so many great combinations when it comes to chia puddings. Pick almost any fruit and it'll taste great. And don't even get me started on peanut butter, chocolate and caramel...! Okay, I'll probably make something like that when I get back from Thailand. But for now, try this neon creation...


1 cup coconut milk
1 cup coconut water
1/3 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp maple syrup, kitul treacle, rice malt syrup or agave (optional)
1 1/4 cups dragonfruit, cut into cubes
1-2 frozen bananas
2 cups kiwi fruit, skin removed and cubed
2 Tbsp granola, to serve


In a mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk and water, chia seeds and maple syrup until well combined. Place in the refrigerator for at least a few hours or until thick and of a pudding-like texture. I find it's easier to make your chia the night before.

Meanwhile, pulse the dragonfruit and frozen bananas in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy. To serve, layer the dragonfruit pureé, chia pudding mixture and kiwi fruit in a tall glass or jar. Top with granola and extra fruit – voila!
