Kiwi Chia Pudding with Yoghurt
I love getting a new project happening. It creates energy and excitement amongst the team and this project, although very small, was a lot of fun. SO these are designed to help you get a deeper sleep, the best suggestion we have is don't eat them for breakfast, but rather a mid-week dessert to get a good night's rest. Try them and let me know! (Don't under blend, we love smooth textures for dessert here, so longer is better!)
Eating 1–2 medium kiwis before bed may help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Kiwis are rich in serotonin and antioxidants, both of which may improve sleep quality when eaten before bed.
Bergamot oil can be useful in preparing your body for sleep, as it slows the heart rate and lowers blood pressure. Unlike many other citrus oils that are said to be energising, bergamot is calming, can reduce stress and anxiety, and possesses sedative qualities.

- 3 Tablespoons Black Chia Seed(s)
- 1 Cup milk of choice, we used almond milk
- 2 large kiwi fruit, peeled, plus 1 more for garnish
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract BUY
- 20 Grams Pure Maple Syrup
- Vanilla or plain yoghurt to serve
- fresh fruit to serve
Place the chia seeds with the almond milk in a small insulated container overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours. Make sure you stir vigorously so that all the chia seeds are wet.
Place the kiwi fruit, vanilla and maple syrup into the Thermomix bowl and blend 20 sec/speed 10. Scrape down lid and sides of bowl. Add the pandan paste and bergamot oil. Blend until you are happy with the colour. You may need to add more pandan paste for it to be green.
Add the soaked chia seeds and blend 1 min/speed 8. Divide between 4 small jars and refrigerate for up to 8 hours, but you can serve after 3 hours.
Top with either Vanilla Yoghurt or Greek Yoghurt or even coconut yoghurt if you are on a dairy free diet. Garnish with fruit of your choice and some edible flowers.
