What tricks will ensure that this Chia Pudding with Lemon Curd tastes just right?

I love to make chia pudding because it is not only practical and easy, you can use it in many recipes.

As I said previously, with the same basis you’re able to make several recipes, tasty and not boring at all!

This is my biggest pleasure, being able to eat food that is tasty and full of character. Forget tasteless or just plain food.

And did you know it is possible to make healthy lemon curd?

You don’t need to make one full of sugar and nasty things. Are you curious?

The big trick for the chia pudding is to stir it very well the mixture until the chia thickens.

It needs a lot of patience, but it is so worth it! Even because chia thickens relatively fast.

It is important to pay attention to the quantities so that the mix doesn’t get too liquid, otherwise, it will not thicken enough.


For the chia pudding with lemon curd you’ll need:

  • Chia seeds
  • Milk or plant-based drink
  • Coconut jelly or another sweetener of your preference
  • Eggs
  • Honey, preferably a good quality one. You can use another sweetener, but in this process it is relevant it is a liquid one

    Fiz algumas adaptações. Muito boa. Obrigada.

    1. Olá Teresa 🙂

      Fico contente que tenha gostado! Já agora, que adaptações fez? Acho importante saber, caso haja questões sobre o assunto.

      Espero que goste de navegar no site e qualquer questão que tenha, por favor não hesite.

  2. Olá.. esta receita parece-me deliciosa. E se trocar o limão por mirtilos congelados e fizer o “mirtilo curd” para rechear cornucópias? Acho que irá resultar? Estas receitas são perdição :baba:

    1. Olá Luisa,

      Antes de mais, obrigada pelos elogios. Fico muito contente que goste do conteúdo No Cheat Day! eheh

      Quanto ao curd de mirtilo, é possível fazer sim! Deixo 2 sugestões:
      – Reduza os mirtilos a sumo (ou triture num liquidificador) e siga o processo da receita.
      – Faça uma calda de mirtilos, colocando-os numa panela com açúcar até que reduzam e caramelizem (esmague um pouco os mirtilos para facilitar o processo).

      Espero que estas dicas ajudem. 😉

      Depois conte-me como ficou, adoro saber!

      Um beijinho,
      No Cheat Day
