A fresh and fruity Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding bursting with raspberry flavours.
If you read my post last week, or have been watching my bullet journal antics, you’ll know I’ve been trying to find ways to simplify life a bit. Little shortcuts to help me gain back some time here and there and keep up with busy family life.
I was so excited when Optiwell got in touch and asked me to work with them as their product totally fits into this mindset. Optiwell is a blend of fruit juices and fat free yoghurt, it’s high in protein, low in fat and super easy to enjoy on the go. It has no added sugar and is just 64 calories a glass. Hurrah!
The children and I have a glass in the afternoon when they come home from kindergarten, it’s our new favourite afternoon snack. It gives them a calcium boost and helps to keeps them going until dinner time. For me, it’s a quick, easy pick me up to keep me full and stop me snacking.
I’ve also been testing out using Optiwell in various recipes, here’s the first I’ll be sharing on the blog with you. It’s a quick, nutritious and delicious Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding with Raspberries.
You can watch me making it here (oh how I wish I had a make-up artist following me around every day..):
Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe
This nifty little dish feels like a treat but is secretly packed with loads of good stuff. Chia seeds are a total superfood, containing heaps of fibre and Omega 3s. Meanwhile, Optiwell adds in fruity flavour and a protein and calcium boost and the raspberries add a portion of fruit to the meal.
This Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding is perfect for an afternoon snack or breakfast. Chocolate for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do..

- 55g chia seeds
- 1tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 100g fresh raspberries
- Mix the Optiwell, chia seeds and cocoa powder in a bowl.
- Put in the fridge, covered, overnight or for at least 6 hours.
- Remove from the fridge and blend until smooth.
