Chia Pudding with Raspberry Compote
This week for Blogging marathon, I will be posting Glass desserts served in glasses. For the first day, I made this super easy, tasty and healthy pudding for me with fresh berries compote. The recipe is from a cook book “Raw” which has an amazing collection of gorgeous dishes made with fresh and raw ingredients. The pudding tastes best if served immediately otherwise the chia seeds may become lumpy and more sticky. Try serving this pudding in individual glasses or small mason jars and be creative to use your favorite dressings.
The pudding looked so gorgeous that I took so many photos and even posted a lot of them in my post. I made the pudding for the four of us but only my elder one and I liked the pudding very much and ate the other two portions as well. The little one her father totally hated it and won’t even tried a single bite. I think because of the glutinous consistency of the chia seeds they did not like it . But for us two it was a yummy and healthy treat.

You may cook the raspberries to make them slight thick in consistency but I liked them fresh.
If raspberries are not sweet enough you may add some honey to it.
