Aaaand we’re back to Baobab.

If you’ve been following my recipes for the last couple of months, you know I’ve been adding Baobab to my breakfast a lot. I don’t actually know why I’m so obsessed with Baobab all of sudden but it’s happening, my friends, so let’s make some baobab orange pudding to celebrate my love for Baobab.


I’ve said Baobab way too many times in the last three sentences. It’s just a funny word to say. B-a-o-b-a-b.

Anyways, if you haven’t checked out the other Baobab recipes I posted, you definitely should because (this should go without saying but I’ll still go ahead and say it) I think they’re pretty darn delicious. There’s the Tangy Baobab Sunshine Smoothie and the Baobab Mango Green Smoothie but there’s also this Top 10 Superfoods to Add to Your Diet post I wrote a while back where I mention the benefits of Baobab and what it actually is.

There’s a yellow/happy/summer color theme with my Baobab recipes and this chia pudding is no exception. Granted, it isn’t exactly bright yellow or green but it’s slightly orange from the orange juice and all light and elegant looking from the almond milk and while is definitely a summer color in my opinion. Plus, the toppings totally brighten the pudding up!

It’s so light and creamy and delicious I wish I had some of it right now. It’s actually 11pm right now and I’m trying hard to avoid eating at night so no chia pudding for me right now. You can make it for breakfast tomorrow, though! Simply put everything in a mason jar in the evening and your breakfast will be ready for you in the morning — that’s what I should do anyways. The reason why I’m writing this now is that I’ll be at work all day tomorrow. I’m actually getting up pretty early so a chia pudding or overnight oats sound like a really great idea! There’s nothing better than when your breakfast is already ready for you when you wake up, right?

You can top this chia pudding with anything you like. I chose blueberries, goji berries, hemp seeds, strawberries, and some kiwi. It’s actually my first time cutting it like that and I’m pretty proud of myself, though I know a kiwi rose would be more impressive but c’mon, look how cute it is!
